Make snowman tag decor with a group!  This is a sponsored post with Fairfield World but all ideas and opinions are my own.

I started teaching group craft classes at my local public library this year, and I’m having a blast!  This week I led the group in making snowman tags to use to decorate with this winter.  These tags will make great door or wall decor!  This is a great activity to make as a group.  Here’s how I did it:

Supplies Used to Make Wood Tag Snowman Decor:

Start by painting the wood tags.  I had the class create a wash to paint with for two reasons:

  1.  It creates a rustic or farmhouse look.
  2. It dries more quickly than just painting it, and we only had an hour for the class.

Create the wash by adding water to the paint.  The ratio I usually use is two parts paint to one part water, but you can add more or less water to create the finish you want.  I used white paint for the “face” and brown for the hat.  Paint the wood strip for the brim, too.

While the paint is drying, let people choose their embellishments.  I provided buttons, pom poms, flowers, and fabric scraps for them to choose from.

I precut orange carrot noses and black happy smiles from Oly-Fun Fabric.  Oly-Fun is a non-fraying fabric that cuts like paper in my Silhouette Cameo.  I cut enough pieces for everyone in the class, then ran them through my Xyron Creative Station to turn the Oly-Fun noses and smiles into stickers.  Attendees could just peel the fabric off the backing and stick them on the wood tag.

Use a hot glue gun to attach the brim to the hat, as well as the button or pom pom eyes.  Other embellishments can be hot glued on as desired.

Make snowman tag decor to decorate your front door or your home with this winter. This is a great activity for groups to make together.

As a finishing touch, wrap a fabric scrap around the base of the snowman tag to make a pretty scarf.  I love how unique each person’s snowman is!  Each one has a slightly different style to it.  Everyone was very proud of what they created, as they should be!  I look forward to crafting at the library again soon.
