Making a Coffee Can Snowman

Recycled crafts are great fun to make and a good alternative to expensive decorations. Coffee cans are a popular container to reuse and recycle. They can be a great creative starting point for making a cute Christmas snowman. This is a page about making a coffee can snowman.

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.
