Here's how to create Snowmen Ornaments from Wooden Clothespins:
To begin Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Snowman, gather all supplies. Remove the metal spring from the wooden clothespins. For each Snowman, line up one full clothespin on your work surface, to create a body shape. Attach the wooden clothespin pieces together with a glue gun and glue sticks, using the photo as a template. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Paint the front and all sides of the clothespin Snowmen with Titanium White acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. I love using Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have excellent one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Using MONO Multi Liquid Glue with a fine tip applicator, attach two mini wiggle eyes to the top center of each clothespin snowman. Set aside to dry. If you do not have a fine tip applicator, place liquid glue on a paper plate and apply with the tip of a toothpick.
To create the carrot noses, paint the tips of toothpicks with Jack-O-Lantern Orange acrylic craft paint, then let dry. Cut ½” of the pointy end off with scissors. Attach the carrot noses to the snowman faces using MONO Multi Liquid Glue with a fine tip applicator. I love the MONO Multi Liquid Glue from Tombow because it dries clear plus has fine tip and broad tip applicators in the same bottle.
For scarves, measure and cut assorted colors of chenille stems into 4” lengths. Wrap and twist around the neck of the snowman, then arrange the ends to the left or the right. No need to attach with glue as twisting the chenille stem will keep it in place.
FInish the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Snowman earmuffs, measure, and cut a silver tinsel chenille stem to 1” long. Bend into a “U” shape and glue to either side of the snowman head. Attach pom poms over the cut end of each stem using a glue gun and glue sticks. Complete the clothespin snowmen by placing two self-adhesive rhinestones on the snowman body as buttons. To create an ornament, cut a 12” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a loop with a knot, and attach it to the top of the clay pot with a glue gun and glue sticks.
