Looking for a fun winter kids craft that is useful AND has a long shelf life? Look no further than this simple, yet adorable, tissue box DIY snowman! It is inexpensive to make, and there are so many fun ways to customize it. Kids will have a blast creating it and will love seeing it in the home day after day. My 7 year old and I both made one and I love them both, though the character in hers makes me smile just a tad more!
Paint small circles for the mouth.
If you want to add a bit of rosy cheeks to your snowman, use a round paint brush and dip it lightly into red paint. Dab the brush onto paper towels until there is mostly dry brush with just a bit of paint and lightly dab onto the snowman’s cheeks.
Step four. Allow the face to dry completely. Add a dab of white paint to each eye.
Step five. You can choose to add other features such as eyebrows or a scarf, leave your jolly fellow as is – whatever you prefer. Once completely dry, place on top of a tissue box and you’ve got a fun and festive snowman tissue box DIY cover!
