DIY Snowman Gifts Inspiration

Today we went looking to see who was following us on Twitter and found Family Focus Blog. They have a slew of great craft, and recipe ideas. Their snowman craft caught our eye because it was more eco-friendly than other versions we saw on Pinterest. Will we find you following us on Twitter tomorrow?

5 DIY Snowman Gifts

Here are 5 DIY Snowman Gifts our USA Savvy Savers will love.
Eco -Friendly Snowman Candle Jar - Family Focus Blog
This Snowman candle jar is a great fun upcycle that even kids could easily do, and would make a great classroom project for grade 3 and up to take home. It could also be incorporated into a multiplication lesson -deciding how many buttons would be needed to make one for each person in  their family, for all the students in the class to take home etc.

Snowman Mug Rug

Graftsy has a tonne of snowman patterns. The top trending snowman craft pattern on Craftsy is a Snowman Mug Rug. We love the cheerful cardinal perched on the smiling applique snowman. Mug rugs are great gifts to whip up for teachers, or anyone who enjoys a cup of cocoa or coffee, and would be an especially thoughtful gift for a grandparent if made from clothes they had previously purchased for a grandchild that cannot be passed down due to stains or tears.
Are you a crafter?
The creator of this pattern includes permission for you to make and sell these mug rugs provided certain conditions are met.

Upcycle Sock Snowman Craft

We love this upcycle sock Snowman from Then She Made, because it uses what we have on hand do you have these things on hand too? Odd socks - I swear the mates must have run away with either my spoons or tupperware lids. Elastic bands - do you get these on your broccoli too? Rice - Rice is supposed to last forever, but the stuff that comes in plastic bags takes on an odd spoiled smell after a while, so storing rice in sock snowmen might be better than storing it in plastic bags.
These sock snowmen might be a welcome gift at your local food bank along with a note about the rice inside- ask first though before you take a batch to them.

Dasani Drops Snowman Upcycle

Here's an quick stocking stuffer upcycle. I noticed my DD's Dasani Drops bottle looked just like a snowman. Peel off the wrapper and decorate! Here's a very quick upcycled Dasani Drops bottle beside our cookie jar.

Free Easy Crochet Snowman Pattern

We love this free easy crochet pattern for a mini snowman, because it can be used in a variety of ways - make one to hang on a tree, or fill with pine needles for potpourri, or whip up a batch to make a wreath or even a quiet indoor bowling set. What will you make with this free pattern from Craftsy?
