Some ideas for crafts that use free snowman patterns include a set of three wooden snowman knick-knacks made from a free scroll saw pattern, a knitted stuffed snowman doll, and a fluffy snowman made from a washcloth. NorthPoleChristmas.com offers 11 different free snowman designs in its set of 32 patterns to transfer to round wooden ornaments for painting.
The free wood cutting patterns for three wooden snowmen called snow buddies include instructions for scroll cutting the pieces from 1/4- and 1/2-inch plywood and 3/4 inch pine. Making these cute decorations requires cutting and sanding the pieces, painting and staining them, and assembling them using glue and wood screws. Finishing touches include a cinnamon stick tree trunk with greenery and snowman hats made of socks or fleece.
The 9-inch-tall knitted snowman is made entirely of white yarn with buttons and chenille stems for facial features and arms. The pattern includes instructions for knitting a red hat to sew on top.
It only takes about an hour to make a soft and fluffy washcloth snowman. Since basic sewing stitches or even basting stitches suffice for this project, it is a great choice for kids to make. The pattern instructions use ribbon, beads and buttons to decorate the snowman, but personalizing with embellishments is also an option.
