Ginger Snap Crafts: Pringles Can Snowman {tutorial}

Pringles Can Snowman {tutorial}

This post was first seen over on the DecoArt blog as part of their Cookie Container Challenge. Thank you to DecoArt for sponsoring this post.

Hello! Well, this past weekend we had our first real taste of snow. Eek! It didn’t stick, but it gives me hope that we will see more of the white stuff later this winter. ;) It also reminded me of this cute Pringles Can Snowman that I made a few months ago as part of a Cookie Container Challenge with DecoArt. You’ll have to check out all of the creative entries right {HERE}. Buuuut first stick around to see how easy this little guy was to put together. Enjoy! :)

First, you’ll cover your can using white cardstock.
Then brush on a thin layer of decoupage with a foam brush.

Then cover your can with white glitter. Shake off any excess glitter.

While my glitter was drying I cut out my snowman “parts” using my Silhouette & chipboard.

Then I painted each piece using the acrylic paint & a fine tip paint brush. Let dry.
After everything was dried it was time to assemble. First, I tied on the “scarf”.

Then I hot glued on the face, arms & buttons. Be careful. It’s hot!

Then I filled my can with snowballs (also known as donut holes!). ;)

These would make sweet little gifts for a neighbor, teacher or friend.

  1. Such a lovely idea! Looks great! It would make a nice home decoration or a nice Christmas present - especially if you fill it with candy or cookies and give them away as well. Have a great day, Ginger!
