Like plastic ball snowman ornaments and wine cork snowmen ornaments, these wood block snowman ornaments make a great holiday craft project to make on your own or with the kids.

However, if you will be crafting with the kids, just be sure to assist with the hot glue and scissor steps, or complete those steps yourself.

How to Make Snowman Ornaments with Wood Blocks from Dollar Tree

  4. Attach Scarf: Wrap scarf around the snowman and use hot glue to secure.

Craft Tips

  • Experiment with gluing the scarf on in different ways. Try tying it, gluing to a different side, or other ways of tying scarves.
  • No black paint? You can use a sharpie instead.
  • This craft calls for materials to make 8 ornaments, but feel free to make as many as you like. Each package of the tumbling tower game has 36 wood blocks in it so you can make a whole of ornaments on the cheap. 
  • Can’t find the tumbling tower game at the dollar store? Order it here or use mini jenga blocks.
