Happy Holidays Y’all!
In this post, I will demonstrate how to make a Snowman Christmas tree. It’s officially the most Magical Time of the year, and it’s time to bust out those amazing Christmas decorations. I cannot believe that Christmas is almost here, it seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Thanksgiving. I absolutely love Christmas time and I especially love Christmas decorations.
When it comes to decorating anything for this time of year there is no such thing as too much. You can go completely over the top. I personally think, since Christmas is such a marvelous time of the year, you should go big or stay home.. I’ve also made my own life-size Elf on the Shelf, because I was unable to find one.

Once your snowman is finished you can use it to decorate the inside or outside of your home. All the materials that I used to construct my snowman were purchased from Hobby Lobby. After all in the south Hobby Lobby, is the go to place for everything craft related. So let’s get started and begin to make our DIY Snowman Christmas Tree.
Why Make a Snowman Christmas Tree?
A snowman has always been closely associated with winter and Christmas time, so of course it’s one of the best decorations to use for the holiday season.
How to Create a Snowman Christmas Tree
The first thing you will need is a snowman tree topper, I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby. I used red ribbon as his scarf and I added the red berries for a bit of a decorative touch.
Where to Find a Christmas Tree
After you’ve found your tree topper, you will need a white pre-lit Christmas tree. You can use a skinny tree or a normal sized tree. I’m using a four foot tall skinny tree because I wanted to create a fun and whimsical snowman Christmas tree. As I mentioned earlier, I purchased my tree from Hobby Lobby, but they can be purchased in a variety of places such Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, or Target.
Using Christmas Ornaments as Buttons
You will need three shiny black Christmas ornaments in order to make the buttons for your snowman. I used a hot glue gun to ensure that my buttons stay in place. Since you’re building a snowman, your snowman will need arms.
How to Create the Snowman’s Arms
You can use white pipe cleaners, for the arms, however I decided to use real sticks from my own yard, then you need to some wire to wrap the sticks together. Once you have you arms made, you can leave them brown or spray paint them. I chose to spray paint my arms with white spray paint that I picked up from Walmart.
Completed Snowman Christmas Tree
Here is my finished Snowman Christmas tree, the great thing about the trees they can be placed indoors or outdoors.
