Snow-Tex is one of my favorite products to use for winter crafts! It really does create a fun snowy texture, and it’s easy to work with. A little goes a long way, too, so one bottle will get you through a lot of projects! I originally created this project for the DecoArt website as an artist on their team, and when I pulled this little guy out to decorate my home for winter I realized I hadn’t shared the project here yet. I hope you enjoy this project and will give it a try!

Snowman Tin Decor DIY Supplies

  • Tart Tin (found at Goodwill)
  • Styrofoam balls
  • Bottlebrush tree    
  • Yarn    
  • floral foam
  • Beads
  • Snow-Tex Paste
cut floral foam
Cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside the tin, and hot glue the foam to the bottom of the tin. This will create a solid base for the piece.
assemble snowman
Use toothpicks to attach to styrofoam balls together. Leave one toothpick sticking out at the bottom to use for the stand later.
snow-tex base
Cover the floral foam with Snow-Tex to create the snowy ground for the scene. Let it dry.
snow tex snowman
Cover the two styrofoam balls with Snow-Tex to make the snowman. Before the Snow-Tex dries, push in the bead embellishments. I used a cone bead for the nose and round seed beads for the eyes and buttons.

Embellish the snowman with a yarn scarf, paper party hat, and other elements. Add a bottle brush tree and “joy” wood sign to finish the scene. Use hot glue to add them to the scene, or gently push them into the Snow-Tex as it is drying.
