You will need:

  • White, orange and black foam
  • 3 circles of various sizes to draw around
  • Buttons
  • Glue
  • Craft wire
  • Ribbons
  • Felt tip pens

For each snowman you will need 6 circles, 2 of each size, cut out from the white foam.

Lie out one set of the white circles going from biggest to smallest. Make sure there is a small gap between each circle. Glue the craft wire to the circles making sure that it goes through each circle and that there is a loop at the top to hang the decoration.

Glue the other circles on top. I used a glue gun to do this but any glue should do.

For the nose and hat (optional) cut them out of the foam and stick them on.

For the face, let the children make their own using felt tip pens.

Add the buttons and finally with the ribbon of their choice, tie it around the craft wire between the the first two circles.

By far my favourite decorations ever! Depending on which way you look at it, it is either sad or really mad.
