This Christmas tutorial shows you how to make Snowman blocks from upcycled wood

What you need

4×2 wood lengths
1/4 inch branches
Craft Glue
Hessian or Burlap for beanie


This Christmas tutorial shows you how to make Snowman  blocks, these snowman blocks use upcycled or recycled wood and are perfect for your front door or porch. If you have a rustic mantle they look great on the mantle too.

You can use different types of wood based on what you have, 4×4’s give a nice chunky snowman.  These wooden primitive snowmen look great when grouped together in different heights and sizes.

First thing you need to do is sand your snowman block down so it is smooth to touch, it doesn’t have to be perfect just enough to take off any sharp edges.

Paint your block with white paint and allow to dry, You may want to leave some wood showing through or completely cover your snowman.

Create the beanie by gathering a rectangle of burlap into a square beanie. you will need to measure your block to see the dimensions you need. You could also use a ready-made kids beanie or knitted beanie for this part too.

Using marker pens or paint create the faces of your snowman.

Finish off by adding the scrap fabric scarf and any buttons to the look.
