If I’m being totally honest with you, I actually enjoy crafting with paper plates just about as much as my kids do. I think that’s partially because these were the very first kind of craft they felt confident making themselves without my help, so I got to just play along and make one of my very own alongside them! I’ve been crafting with them freely during creative paper plate sessions of my own choice ever since. Recently, my kids invented these adorable paper plate snowmen and they were so cute that I just had to document the process of making one and share it for all to see, especially since Christmas is fast approaching, making these little guys right on theme.
Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.
For this project, you’ll need:
- Paper (orange, red, and green)
- A pencil
- A black marker
- A glue stick
- Two googly eyes
Gather your materials!
Draw all of your smaller details first to be cut out after. On your red paper, draw three small circles to be holly berries. On your green paper, draw three small, spiky holly leaf shapes. On your orange paper, draw a medium sized carrot nose, somewhat rounded on its wider end and tapering to a point at the other end.
Cut out each of these shapes from your three coloured sheets and set them side for the moment.
