Wood Snowman (No Saw needed)! 

Super simple wood snowman tutorial, so simple- no saw is needed. I made mine for just the cost of the wood rounds, approximately $4 each but I already had paints, screws and extra scrap wood.

 You may already have these items handy as well! 

You will need: 

  • 1 large precut wood round
  • 1 slightly smaller wood round
  • 6 X 48 (x 1″ or smaller thickness) piece of wood (for hat)
  • Wood Stake 
  • Paints (red, black, white)
  • Wood stain (optional)
  • Drill and about 8-10 screws

That’s it! 

Step 1

Anchor both wood rounds to stake with 4 or 5 screws.   (Predrill holes). 
Stain if desired. I used dark walnut. I like to stain for a rustic look and to protect the wood from the elements. 


Step 2: 

From your wood piece, Cut an approx. 10 x 1 ” strip for base of hat. Cut an approx 7 x 6 ” rectangle for top of hat.  These are approximates, you can measure to fit your wood round head. 

Anchor to snowman’s head with 2-3 screws. I did glue the two pieces together with wood glue first, then anchored after dry.

Step 3: 

With remaining wood, cut to fit a desired scarf size. Anchor to snowman with a screw.

Step 4:

Paint and have fun! I always coat my outdoor   items with a clear gloss sealant spray. 


Get creative, add a red bow to the hat and eyelashes for a snow-woman, for example. Keep the stained edges exposed for a rustic look; add burlap or twine, or distress your painted areas with a fine grit sandpaper.


I’ll have a snow lady to keep him company next year! And maybe a gingerbread house, candy canes, lollipops…
