Here's how to create a DIY Snowman from Dollar Tree Picture Frames:
Gather all supplies and protect your work surface.
Remove cardboard backing, paper liner, and glass from picture frames. Set these items aside.
In a well-ventilated area (or outside) spray paint plastic picture frames white. Apply several light coats to achieve a solid coating.
Using the paper picture frame liner as a base, apply layers of doilies onto the plain white side with an adhesive runner.
Flip over and trim all edges with scissors.
Repeat with all three picture frame inserts.
Insert doily covered papers and cardboard backing into all three picture frames.
Stack picture frames and secure matching edges with a strong adhesive like E6000. Set aside to dry overnight.
Cut a carrot nose from orange felt. Orange cardstock would work as well.
Attach carrot nose, two large black button eyes and three buttons to the snowman with the glue gun and glue sticks.
Measure and cut 24” lengths of at least three types of ribbon. Tie around snowman’s neck and secure with the glue gun.
Paint snowflake cutout with light blue craft paint. Set aside to dry. Outline with clear glitter glue, let dry. Then glue to the snowman to finish.
This is a fun activity to create with your tweens and teens. Make a DIY Picture Frame Snowman in just about 30 minutes.
