Step-by-step Instructions to make the paper snowman decoration:
1. Gather all your materials.Then start by cutting your white construction paper into thin strips lengthwise.
If you want a smaller paper snowman you can also cut it sideways or you can also adjust the thickness of the paper strips to make it look different if you make several.
Then you want to spread the paper strips in a circle and stick them together with double-sided tape. Once you’re satisfied with how it looks you get all the ends of the strips together to form a round shape and use the double-sided tape to keep them in place as well.
When you finished your first paper ball for the snowman body you are going to follow the same steps to make a smaller one for the head.
Assemble the smaller one on top of the big one and glue them together with double-sided tape.
2. Now using a black construction paper you are gonna three small circles for the body of the Snowman, one big circle for the hat and a rectangle size piece that will make the body of the hat.

3. Cut a rectangle shape from the orange construction paper and roll it into a cone shape to make the Snowman nose.
You can cut that rectangle shape as big or small if you want to pending on how big you want the nose of your paper snowman.
Glue it together with the double-sided tape.
4. Now it’s time to assemble the hat of the paper craft snowman.
Grab the big circle and the rectangle shape that you cut out from the black construction paper. Roll the rectangle into a tube shape and use the tape to glued together.
Depending on how big you made that rectangle is how big the head for your snowman is going to be at the end. You can still cut it smaller to make a smaller hat.
Take the tube and and cut around one end and fold those pieces inward so you can attach the circle on top of it.
5. Glue the hat on top of the Snowman and attach the nose, googly eyes and the three small circles to the Snowman body.
6. Of course your paper snowman also needs Arms so we’re gonna create those with pipe cleaners. For each time you are going to need one long and two short pieces of the pipe cleaners.
Twist the two shorter pieces along the longer one to create the arm of the Snowman and repeat that process so you end up with two arms.
7. Now all you need to do is attaching the arms to the paper snowman and you’re almost done.
8. For the last decorative part you are going to need your ribbon and cut two pieces. One will go around the hat and the other one is going to be the scarf of your snowman.
Now you created a cute paper snowman craft that can be part of your christmas dinner table.
