Paving Stone Snowman


  • 1 inch keyhole-shaped paver
  • Wood buttons (painted orange)
  • Black outdoor paint
  • Strips of plaid material for scarf
  • White outdoor paint
  • Advertisement

  • Old flannel (old pajamas, sweat shirts, or work shirts)
  • One pom pom
  • Assorted decorations
  • glue


Paint paver with two coats of white paint. Sprinkle with glitter and allow paint to dry. Attach button nose with glue. Paint on faces, buttons, etc. Allow to dry. Make caps by cutting an 8 to 10 inch circle of red flannel and gather along the circumference with a running stitch. Fit onto the "head" and glue securely. Glue a white pom pom on top of the cap. Tie on the "scarf" and add other ornaments, if desired. I paint my eyes on, you can tweak yours anyway you want to. Have fun, they make great gifts!

Yours is very cute. I made these for a craft show a couple years ago and NOT ONE SOLD. I came home with several, santas, snowmen, turkeys, ornaments, gingerbread ect. My sister in law works for the government agency and took some with her and I sold $300.00 worth! Keep at it they were good sellers for me!

Where do you find the keyhole shaped stone? Can't find it at Lowe's or Home Depot. Any suggestions?

Looks like you can make this using styrofoam...
Buy one big block and use an electric carving knife to cut out the shape of the snowman ~~OR~~


I would print out the picture and take it to my local nursery or rock yard. They may have something similar. You might have to use 2 different pavers and 'Glue' them together.
