Here's how to create Wooden Spoon Snowmen:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Wooden Spoon Snowman, gather all supplies. Basecoat the wooden spoons and spatula with Titanium White acrylic craft paint. Let 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.
Cut the rounded ends off a wooden craft stick with sharp scissors. Paint the craft stick and the top 1/3 of the wooden spatula with Lamp Black acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Cut three triangles from orange craft foam to create the carrot noses. Attach two wiggle eyes and a carrot nose to each wooden spoon for the snowman's face. To create the earmuffs, measure and cut a chenille stem to 4” long. Bend into a “U” shape and glue to either side of the wooden spoon. Attach pom poms over the cut end of each stem using a glue gun and glue sticks. Glue the black craft stick to the wooden spatula to create the hat brim. If you don't have orange craft foam, you can use craft felt or colored cardstock.
Create the snowmen's mouths by dipping the end of a paintbrush handle into Lamp Black acrylic craft paint. This is my hack for making perfectly round dots for any painting project! If you just need a small amount of paint, open the container and use the paint that is in the lid.
Tie ribbon scarves around the neck of each snowman, securing with a dot of glue. Cut the ribbon ends in a fishtail notch which not only looks good but helps prevent fraying. Attach two black buttons to the handle of each wooden spoon with a glue gun and glue sticks.
To finish the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Wooden Spoon Snowman, basecoat a wooden snowflake sticker with Whispering Turquoise acrylic craft paint. Attach the wooden snowflake to the spatula snowman's hat with a glue gun and glue sticks. Place a self-adhesive rhinestone in the center of the snowflake. A fun craft for teens and tweens to create on a budget. The perfect hostess, teacher, or neighbor gift for the winter season.
