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