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.

  1. The spring wreath that you had in your decor stash was perfect for this project! I love the snowman you created and can think of so many places that you could display it in your home for Christmas and also for winter decor.

  2. Mr. Frosty is adorable! I'm sure if I rummage through my craft stash, I could find 3 different size grapevine wreaths! So cute!!!

  3. What a darling way to update your Spring wreaths. They sure make the perfect snowman! Thanks for inspiring creative ideas, Angie.

  4. The glitter and glass took this to next-level greatness, Angie! I just LOVE how you repurposed this. I need to be better about keeping my eyes open when going through my stash. Loving your sweet snowman. xoxo, Kristi

  5. This turned out so cute! And I love how you styled it with the scarf above. It's just perfect for the Holidays through winter!! Love! Love! Love!

  6. 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!
