Christmas Craft Ideas- Wooden Crafts!

Christmas Snowmen
Christmas Snowmen
25 November 2010- Christmas is now only a month away and still we have enough time to make some wooden crafts for Christmas. Although we can always buy one or the other type of Christmas decorations, it is a totally different feeling when guests appreciate our own handmade Christmas crafts which we use to decorate home for Christmas! So, here we present some Christmas craft ideas for kids (because they are easy to make, adults too can try them out). These wooden crafts involve making certain basic Christmas ornaments and other symbols representative of Christmas.

Christmas Snowman- Ultimate Xmas Craft Idea Nothing can compare such characters as Santa Claus and Snowman on Christmas. You will find lots of wooden toys in form of these Christmas symbols but the one you make with your own hands can't be compared with any of them. So, here is the first wooden craft idea for Christmas to help you make a Christmas snowman! For wooden Christmas crafts, you will require some other materials apart from wood too (see the list below). You can either buy these craft supplies individually or buy wooden craft kits that are available abundantly in crafts stores.

To make a Christmas snowman from wood, you will require the following supplies:
  • Plywood (with 8mm and 4mm thickness )
  • Dark green ribbon
  • Wooden beads in red color
  • Small red bells (two)
  • Wire
  • Acrylic paints (white orange, red, black and light blue)
  • Drill with 1.5 mm and 3.5 mm bits
  • Screw (35 mm x 3,5 cm)
  • Hot glue gun with glue
  • Wooden Pattern for Snowman ( you can make it yourself or download from some free wooden patterns for crafts websites)
Step-by-Step Instructions for Christmas Snowman Craft
Following steps will guide you in your wooden craft project for Christmas Snowman.
  • Print the pattern of snowman on paper and transfer the markings on wood. You have to saw out a base, a body, a sign (optional but recommended), two hands and one nose. Saw these pieces out and sand them. The body of snowman should be marked on thicker wood and nose on the thin wood.
  • Now paint the base, hands and body of snowman in white and allow them to dry. Make the markings for the hat and paint it.
  • If you have decided to make your snowman craft carry a sign board, then paint it in red because this color goes well with snow and also brings in the Christmas feel. Also, write down something on the sign board like “Merry Christmas" or “Happy Holidays." Use white paint to write such quotes.
  • Paint the nose with orange color and let it dry.
  • After all the painted wooden pieces get dried, glue the nose on the face and make two eyes with black paint. Glue both the hands onto the sign.
  • - Now drill two small holes in the top of the sign right at the center.
  • Take the wire and insert its ends through the backside of the sign and put the wire around the neckof the snowman and then tighten it. This will make the sign hang in the front of the snowman craft.
  • Now its turn to attach this Snowman Christmas craft to its base wood. For this, drill two holes in the base of the snowman and two holes in the base. With the help of screws, secure the Chirstmas snowman to the wooden base.
  • Use the ribbon to tie a scarf around your Snowman's neck.
