FloraCraft Flower Snowman

Flowers are not what most of us think about when we see a snowman, but that'’s what makes this Styrofoam snowman so unique.

Create your own and share the pictures using #ACMooreInspired.

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut off the bottom of the 6"” foam ball with the serrated knife to make a flat spot. Use the wire cutters to cut the flowers from the stems leaving about a 1”" stem. Glue the flowers side by side around the foam balls to completely cover. Leave a small, bare space at the bottom of the head and at the top of the body to connect the foam balls together. Also, leave a small bare space at the bottom of the body so the snowman will stand. Cut a 3" piece of the wood dowel and set aside. Insert the rest of the wooden dowel into the bottom of the head and glue the other end into the body. Trim any excess dowel. Paint the 3" piece of dowel you set aside earlier Jack-o-Lantern and let dry. (This is the snowman's nose.)

    Cut a 9"” circle, 6"” circle and a 16”" x 5"” rectangle from the Black felt. Glue the rectangle ends together into a ring and glue the ring centered on top of the 9"” circle. Glue the 6"” circle on top of the ring to complete the hat. Tie a small length of ribbon into a knot. Remove the berries from the picks with the wire cutters, then glue the knot and the berries to the hat.

    Tie a piece of the ribbon around the neck for the scarf. Trim the ends into a “V” shape. Glue a toothpick to the backs of the eyes then glue in place on the face. Glue the nose in place below the eyes. Place the hat on the head.
