Easy DIY Snowman Wreath

Snowman wreaths are so much fun for Christmas and the winter months. You can find them already made, or you can make them yourself in just a short time with a few supplies. I'm sharing how I made mine today as this month's Thrifty Style Team project, and I'm including a full tutorial and supply list for you as well. 

Once a month, I join a group of uber-talented ladies and we share ideas for thrifty decorating. The group is organized by my friend Julie at Redhead Can Decorate, and always has such clever ideas. This month is Christmas themed and we've got some great ideas for thrifty holiday decorating.

I have a way-too-large stash of materials that I like to use for these challenges. It's truly budget-friendly and it helps me whittle away at the things that I've held on to so I can use them someday. 

Well, someday is today for this spring themed wreath that I haven't used in years. It was a thrift store find years ago, so I didn't pay much for it to begin with.

I removed the pink ribbons and painted the little styrofoam pellets with white chalk paint.

While the paint was still wet, I added some glitter and little glass pellets that I had on hand to make it look like glistening snow. 

The paper bowler hat was made with my cricut machine and I used my hot glue gun to attach it to the top wreath.

Some black and white buffalo checked ribbon and a little sprig of holiday greenery finished it off.

I added some winter snow gear themed mugs from my shop, a red plaid scarf, and a decorative box for a snowy holiday theme.

Since I only used things that I already had, this cute little project cost me ZERO dollars. You can't beat that for budget-friendly! 

Of course I know that not everyone is a craft hoarder like me. So if you want to create your own snowman wreath, here's how to do it.

  12. I attempted to make one of these the other day using some thick floral wire from the dollar store. Let me tell you that you definitely need to use a wire hanger the floral wire didn't hold a round shape so I ended up using it as a swag on my fire place. Still cute as a swag though! Thanks!


I love hearing from you, and your comments make my day!
