Wooden Snowman Family
I love to decorate seasonally, then you can leave things up for 3 months rather than just one. I love snowmen for this very reason, and here is how I created a wooden snowman family for the winter months.
We bought an 8 foot Fir 4×4 at Lowes. We are a family of 4 so I wanted to make one to represent each of us. We decided on the following measurements but you could easily adjust this to fit your needs – 24”, 20”, 16”, 12” We measured and marked all of these.
We used our skill saw to cut each one – remember to wear your safety gear.
Here’s what they looked like after cutting each of them.
I wiped them off and then painted them all with White Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint and let that dry completely.
I bought a kid scarf at Dollar Tree. I cut it in 1/2, and then I cut each 1/2 length wise in 1/2. This would give me 4 scarfs for my snowmen.
I bought 2 packages of kid’s fuzzy socks at Dollar Tree. I put the socks on top of each post to become hats.
I used a rubber band around the top to create a little ball or pom pom.
I tied a scarf around each snowman.
I drew a snowman face on each post with permanent markers. You could also use paint.
I hot glued on buttons on the mom and dad bellies.
Depending on where you are putting these snowmen you might want to put a sealer them.
I love how they turned out!

Thank you so much Lisa 🙂
I think I need some snowmen for my front porch now that our Christmas decor is all put away.
Thanks Linda. It’s nice to keep the snowmen things out for a season.
Your wooden snowmen look really cute, what a great idea <3
Thank you so much Riitta, I’m so glad you think so 🙂
Great idea! My son and I made another one of your snowpeople ideas from last year, and I’m thinking we should try this one out!
Thank you Suzie and I love that you guys made one of the snowmen from last year and want to make something together again. Please send pictures – would love to see.
Your snowman family turned out so good. A great joint project. Our Roseann has chosen this post to be featured in our next Blogger’s Pit Stop.
Thank you so much Kathleen, I appreciate it. I’ll see you at the next party.
I love winter decorations too. Snowmen are the perfect choice. Yours are beautiful.
Thank you so much, and I’m thrilled you like winter decorations too. So great to leave things up for a season instead of just a month.
I’ll pin this for next Christmas.
Thank you Gloria

Thank you so much and it’s lovely to meet you too. See you at the next one.
These are so cute! We make a mini version of these in our classroom to give to parents. Think I want to make my whole family into personalized snow people after this!
Thank you, and I have heard many teachers have made these for students to give to their families on simpler scale. I think that is absolutely wonderful.
