Coffee Can Snowman Craft Project

I spray painted an old coffee can with white spray paint then sponged white acrylic white paint for a textured look. I painted on black eyes, glued on a button nose and drew on a smile. Using a sponge, I dabbed on a touch of red paint for rosy cheeks.

The hat and scarf were made from scrap fleece material. Sew or glue a seam on the hat and tie the top with a rubber band and cut in strips to the rubber band. If you want you can glue holly berries to the hat. I stuffed the inside with a present or cookies and gave as a gift.

It can be used each year a decoration or passed on and refilled with whatever will fit.

I love snowmen and would have never thought to do this. Thanks for sharing. My son has 7 different teachers this year and this will be an ideal gift for them.

Just love this idea, as my DH is always teasing me for saving coffee cans, ect. But I always seem to find a great use for my , "throw away trash" as he calls my stashes. Evelyn @ seidata.com

This would work for Halloween too. Just paint it orange and add a jack o'lantern face, and make the hat out of green fabric like a pumpkin's stem!
