Paper Chain Snowman Craft

Paper Chain Snowman Craft

I love making seasonal crafts with my kiddos. Last year in preparation for Christmas and winter, my daughter and I made some simple but fun paper chain snowmen to hang around the house.


  • Black and white paper
  • Black and orange markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Yarn


  1. Cut the white paper into three strips.
  2. Cut the black paper into one strip and one circle.
  3. Glue the black strip into a loop.
  4. Glue the black loop onto the black circle.
  5. Form a paper chain by gluing the three white strips together.
  6. Draw a snowman face on the top white loop.
  7. Draw three black coal buttons on the middle white loop.
  8. Glue the black hat on top of the top white loop.
  9. Poke two holes in the sides of the black hat.
  10. Thread some yarn through the holes.
  11. Tie the yarn to form a loop.
  12. Hang the snowman from the yarn to display.
