Step 1

Shape the snowman’s head

With a compass, draw a circle half the circumference of the paper plate.

The maximum width of my paper plate is 9 inches, so the circle I drawn has a circumference of 4.5 inches.

Extra Tips

  • You can decorate your paper plate snowman however you like! Give him some mittens or some winter clothes using another paper plate.
  • Stick some sequins or glitters to make your snowman sparkle this Christmas.
  • If you want to use this as a decoration, use strong double-sided tape to stick it to the wall.
  • Make sure the cotton balls used are close to one another. The snowman looks nicer if the cotton balls are compressed.
  • When using hot glue, be very careful and use it with an adult’s supervision.
