Recycled Christmas Ornament Craft: Snowman

Recycled Christmas Ornament Craft Snowman the kids will love!


I have been looking for an easy but cute Christmas Ornament to make with my kids for our Christmas Tree. As I mentioned before Christmas items here are really expensive and never go on sale. I came up with this Recycled Christmas Ornament: Mr. Snowman!

This year I decided to do a fun kid Christmas tree for our family instead of my  usual grown up theme tree.  We will be making more snowmen ornaments to add to our fun whimsical Christmas tree.

Recycled Christmas Ornament Craft: Snowman

What you will need:

  • OJ Can lid or jar lids
  • baby sock
  • googly eyes
  • glue
  • Black marker
  • ribbon

Note: Jar lids from jelly or pickle jars, drinks etc.. will work great. An OJ can lid or mason jar lid is perfect for this craft. The can opener we use bends down the edges of the lids so we don’t have any dangerous edges. Handle with care, especially if your can opener doesn’t bend the edges. You can also use tape on the edges to ensure safety.

1. First start off by making the hat. You will need to snip off the end of the baby sock.

2. Tie ribbon to the end that was snipped off.

3. Cut out a triangle from an orange piece of felt.  Draw face and glue nose on and googly eyes.

4. Put it all together and glue the hat to the head.

Join us throughout the month of December we will be sharing more recycled ornament crafts: reindeer, elves, candy, cupcakes…

  1. Ingenious.
    Pardon my asking, the can tops I am used to are cut with a can opener causing the edges to be sharp. How will one make that safe?

  2. Hi Retha, Glad you asked. I mentioned above that if your can opener doesn’t bend your edges then you should use tape to secure edges. Either duct tape or some other kind and then paint over it. But you can also use lids from anything like jelly jars etc..
