10 Uses For Printable Snowman Templates

Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Christmas Tree Ornaments

Using my templates, you and your kids can make fully customizable snowman Christmas tree ornaments.

You’ll need shrink sheets – which you can find on Amazon for less than $10 a package.

You will print the snowmen you want to use onto the shrink sheets.

Your kids can color in the snowmen at this point, but it also works to leave them blank and decorate after baking.

Cut them out and then punch holes near the top of the snowman’s head.

Bake per the shrink sheets’ instructions and let cool completely.

Now you can add any embellishments you like – a big ribbon hot glued down to look like a scarf?

Little black crafting stones to look like buttons or tiny sticks for arms?

Once you’re done, you can tie off a piece of ribbon through the hole and use that to hang the snowmen from your tree.

9. Suncatcher Snowmen

For this craft, you will need transparency paper, as well as tissue paper. You’ll print the snowmen you want to use onto the transparency paper.

You can cut out an outline on white paper and paste it to the figures, or you can cover the snowmen in white tissue paper and then embellish them.

Add buttons, a top hat, scarf, or you can just fill in the snowman, mosaic-style, with bits of tissue paper.

Poke a hole in the top and tie off a piece of string. You can use that to hang the suncatcher.

8. Snowman Frosting Stencil

Using one of my basic, no-frills templates, add an outline of the snowman inside the existing one, about half an inch to a quarter of an inch inside.

Then, cut out the outline along both lines to leave you with a stencil.

You can lay down the stencil on a cake and pipe frosting over it; when you lift it up, you’re left with a perfect snowman outline.

7. Snowman Puffy Toy

This is a great use for my snowman pictures for beginning sewers.

Using one of my basic templates, you’ll cut it out, leaving about a fourth of an inch of paper around the lines.

Then, you can pin that down to the fabric you’re using and cut it out along the outline. Do this twice so that you have two pieces.

You’ll then start from the bottom, sewing upward. About halfway through, you’ll stuff polyester fill into the figure. Continue to stuff as needed as you sew up the entire figure.

Once you’re done with the basic body of the snowman, you can sew on buttons, a scarf, a hat, a nose, and even arms.

6. Greeting Card Embellishments

My snowmen illustrations would make adorable greeting card embellishments on DIY Christmas or winter holiday cards.

You can resize the snowmen per your needs, print them out onto cardstock and then color them in or decorate them as you like.

Then, when they’re ready, you can paste them to the front of the card (another piece of cardstock folded in half).

Consider using glitter to outline the snowmen or a little piece of plaid fabric ironed down and glued on for a real-life scarf.

5. Jewelry-Making

My snowmen are ideal for making earrings, necklaces, or bracelets – all you need are shrink sheets.

You can print out the snowmen you want to use onto the shrink sheets, cut them out and punch holes for the jewelry notions. Bake them per the instructions.

Once they’ve cooled, you can decorate the snowmen however you like and attach the jewelry notions, whether it’s earring hooks or wire for necklaces and bracelets.

4. Cotton Ball Snowmen

This is a basic and customizable craft that you can use my snowman pictures for when you’re stuck inside on a cold winter afternoon.

You’ll just need cotton balls and construction paper.

You can print off the snowmen you want to use – I recommend one of the more basic outlines – and then have your kids glue the cotton balls within the lines.

They can then cut out arms, carrot noses, and even a top hat from construction paper and glue them on.

3. Googly-Eyed Snowmen

Another cute idea for using my snowmen pictures is to give kids buttons, googly eyes, and construction paper and let them decorate the figures.

They can put the googly eyes on its head, as well as an orange carrot nose and a drawn-in mouth, and use the buttons where buttons would go on the snowman.

2. Winter Holiday Décor 

My snowman pictures are the ideal blank slates for all your winter home décor needs.

For example, you could create cute wall art by customizing an outline and framing it, or you could create a tabletop display using fake snow blankets and a Christmas village set.

If you’re decorating for a party, you could string up several snowmen and create a simple bunting for over a doorway or use the cut-outs for place settings.

1. Posters/Signs

When you have to make a poster or sign for your organization’s event, you can use my snowman pictures as you would clip art to decorate.

To isolate a single snowman on a page of multiples, you can use the rectangular selection to draw a box around the figure you want to use and copy and paste it into the document you’re making.

It just adds a cute touch to a poster for a winter wonderland ball or a winter coat drive.
