DIY Snowman Wreath

I finally made something I have been wanting to make for a year...
a Snowman Wreath!


  
I saw the cutest snowman wreath on Pinterest last year - click here to see my inspiration.  I have seen a number of snowman wreaths since then.  I saw a really cute one last week, with a great tip on where to buy the wreaths, on East Coast Creative...click here to see!  

All you need to make your own Snowman Wreath are three different size wreaths, hat, scarf, mittens (optional), sticks for hands, green craft wire to hold the three wreaths together and a wreath hanger for your door - that's it! 

*For doors that scratch easily, you may want to line the back of the wreath with cloth or felt. I suggest using matching green fabric or felt and attaching it with a hot glue gun.  

The only thing I had to purchase to make the snowman were the artificial wreaths, which cost $20.  Happy dance!  I will be using this snowman for years to come.  

 

With just a change of the hat and scarf,  I can keep it up all winter long!  So simple to make, so sweet...I just love my snowman wreath!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Cheers!

    1. Thanks, Danni!
      I found the Santa wreath holder at our local Home Depot - only 3 were left, I'm so glad I snagged one. I tried to find it on homedepot.com for people that may want to buy one (to link in my post), but it's not listed anywhere. I could not find the same Santa wreath holder anywhere online. I'm still on the hunt!
