Snowman Sign Craft
The full list of materials, tools, and instructions are found in the printable tutorial card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through before starting this project to ensure that you have everything required and understand the steps and timings involved.
This 25-minute craft is a great project for adults and teens, and perfect to make on a cold afternoon!
The letters for “Let It Snow” are cut using a Cricut cutting machine using the provided SVG file. If you have another brand of cutting machine that uses SVGs you of course can use that. I just so happen to have a Cricut!
If you don’t have a cutting machine at all, you could buy cardboard letters or stickers to use instead. There’s always a way around most crafts!
The rest of the sign doesn’t need the use of a Cricut, just old-fashioned scissors to cut a circle of white material for the snowman’s head, and ribbon to create his nose and scarf.
The snowman head is padded out using toy stuffing, which gives a nice 3D effect on the sign, and he’s finished off with button eyes and mouth, and sticks for arms.
We used red for the words and the scarf, but you could use any color you like!

Materials & Tools Used in This Craft
You may have some standard craft supplies at home already, however, for your convenience, I’ve linked any specialized materials and tools needed for this craft to Amazon below.
- Let It Snow SVG file
- Cardstock – you will need red, and white.
- Picture Frame – we used an 8×10″ frame. The plexiglass (or glass) needs to be removed for this craft. Safely discard the glass.
- Buttons – use any color you like, we used brown, but you could use black. You will need 2 medium-size and 4 small-size.
- Poly-fil – this is stuffing for toys and crafts. It comes in huge bags and seems to last forever! You can always use some balls of cotton wool instead.
- White Cloth – use any kind you have such as felt or flannel. It needs to be wide enough to fill the width of the frame, and forms the snowman’s head.
- Orange Wire Edge Burlap Ribbon – to create the snowman’s carrot nose.
- Red/White Checked Wire Edge Burlap Ribbon – to create the snowman’s scarf.
- Thin Sticks – for the snowman’s arms. You could grab a couple of twigs from the yard!

How Do I Make a Snowman Sign?
Just check out the how-to card below with full materials, tools, instructions and demonstration photos. You can print the card out too (don’t worry, the pics don’t print to save your ink!).
- Let It Snow SVG file - right-click and "save as" to download the file
- Red Cardstock
- White Cardstock
- 8x10" Picture Frame, glass removed
- 6 Buttons (2 medium, 4 small)
- Handful of Polyfill stuffing or cotton wool
- White Cloth Piece– Felt, Flannel, Car Shammy
- Orange Wire Edge Burlap Ribbon
- Red/White Checked Wire Edge Burlap Ribbon
- 2 Thin Sticks
- Cricut Machine
- Glue gun
- Upload the "Let It Snow" SVG file to Cricut Design Space.
- Place red cardstock on cutting mat and cut with Cricut. Carefully weed out letters, set aside.
- Remove the board backing from the frame and glue white cardstock to cover it.
- Center and glue the cut letters to the white cardstock at the top. (Frame should be vertical). Use a popsicle stick or toothpick to spread glue to the underside of letters.
- Cut a large white fabric circle (snowman's face) that fits in the empty space on the picture frame under the letters. Use a glue gun to secure the edge of the circle three-quarters of the way around. Stuff the circle with polyfill and finish gluing the edge of the circle.
- To create the carrot nose, cut a 4”/10cm piece of orange burlap ribbon. Roll it from bottom-left edge to top-right edge, creating a tapered nose that is more wide on one edge. Hot glue the edges of the ribbon together. Set aside.
- To create the scarf, cut two pieces of white and red checked ribbon. One piece is 4"/10cm long and the other is 5"/12.5cm long. Cut the 5” piece in half lengthwise and cut the ends to create points. Cut and shape the 4” piece of ribbon lengthwise so that it fits snuggly under the snowman face. Hot glue into place. Hot glue the two scarf pieces on top, just at the very end.
- To create the snowman's face, glue the end of the orange burlap nose to the center of the snowman face. Add two buttons for the eyes and 4 buttons for the mouth.
- Hot glue two thin sticks to the base of the snowman at the scarf and bottom of the frame.
- Allow the glue to dry before displaying where desired!
