2x4 snowman {tutorial} & giveaway

2x4 snowman from Ginger Snap Crafts

I am so excited about this little snowman!  Isn’t he so cute?
You are not going to believe how easy he was to make!

2x4 snowman tutorial

Every time my family gets together we always make something!
This year over Christmas we all made these adorable snowman!
My sister, Abby, had made these back in November
at her ward’s (church congregation) Super Saturday.
I changed it up just a little bit & added one more layer.
{I wanted my snowman to be just a little bit taller.}

What’s great about this snowman is that
the measurements don’t have to be exact.
You could adjust him to be
taller, wider, shorter, skinnier…whatever!

Here are the measurements of my snowman:

{I didn’t have the other 5 inch block in this picture!  Oops!}

snowman vinyl face

For his face I just used vinyl lettering.
I actually “drew” the nose with my Silhouette software!

I think it is his little face that makes him so cute!

Making him is super easy.  Just paint your wood blocks.

Then stack them up, and tie a ribbon “scarf” around his neck.
{You could hot glue the blocks together if you want, but I didn’t.}

  6. Hi Ginger! I am in the process of making this snowman. Actually, I am making a family - 3 tall people and 1 shorter person. I am using blocks my dad made for my children - repurposing them. So...this craft is very special. Where did you get the beautiful ribbon? I am going to display the family on my porch where I work. They will be the greeters. Thank you for this inspiration!

    1. Either Hobby Lobby or Walmart. It's been several years ago though! Good luck with your project. :)

  7. Very cute! What color paint did you use?
