DIY Versatile Snowman Wreath for Winter Decor

Let me just say, one more time...


He is so versatile and fun for winter!  

I decided to post my snowman wreath one more time, to show 
you all the different ways I am using him this season.  With just 
a change of his hat and scarf, he can remain up the rest 
of winter.  I even have an outfit for Valentine's Day.   
The kids L.O.V.E. him!  

If you are thinking about a snowman wreath for next year, 
now is good time to score great deals on wreaths.  All you need 
are three different sizes and some wire to tie them together.
I bought my artificial wreaths for my snowman for just $20, 
not on sale.  I purchased 20 inch, 24 inch and 30 inch 
wreaths.  I already had a bunch of hats and scarves at home 
to choose from.  The sticks for his hands came from our 
backyard.  All of this for only $20....happy dance!   

*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. 

(I purchased my wreaths at Walmart)


Our snowman is all set for our winter weather in Ohio...


He will be changing into his Valentine outfit soon...


And here was his Christmas attire...

 My snowman wreath is so much fun!

If you make one of your own, 
please stop by and share photos on my Facebook page!

Mary that snowman wreath is so awesome! I would have never thought to change him up like that! Maybe you can put some rabbit ears on him for Easters!! What fun!

It's the most adorable front door wreath ever! I just can't get over how cute it is to change up the snowman outfits!!! Who knew? Snowman fashion ;) I would totally dig having my own snowman to dress for the winter seasons!

That is a really good idea and I like how bit it is, really makes an impact and good for much longer than a holiday wreath. Pinning this!

Mackenzie said...

I loved this the first time you shared it and I'm still loving this idea! Now that we have a new house, I may just have to try this soon! :) You are a featured favorite this week on Saturday Show & Tell on Cheerios and Lattes! Thanks so much for sharing last week; we can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!

Would white wreaths work? I have a black door and concerned that the green won't show up very well.

Mary N said...

Hi Holly! Yes, you can make them white...they are adorable in white. I have seen grapevine wreaths painted white, like this one:


You could also spray paint green wreaths white!

Designing Bee said...

This is such a good idea! The snowman wreath is unique and fun. At anytime the snowman can also be decorated differently year after year! Love this idea!

Jill said...

I made this snowman wreath last year,I used green zip ties instead of wire 10 minutes and it was done.....so easy

Heather said...

How do you attach the wreaths together? Love this.
