Let’s Get Started!

Here is What you will need:



You can find these items in any local home improvement store. At the bottom of this article we have provided some links to make locating these items easier.

Watch the video below to get started on your wooden snowman.

Or you can follow the step-by-step instructions below.

Step 1: Cut 1x8 wood board

DIYG Tip:  If you’re using a miter saw with a typical blade, it will not cut all the way through the 8-inch board. You will need to flip your wood board around and line up the saw blade with your first cut to cut the wood all the way through  

Step 2: Sanding

Step 3: Stain wood

Step 4: Cut Wood for Nose (optional)

DIYG Tip:  You will only need to paint one face of the triangle noses since the other side will be glued to the wood board

You can also simply paint a triangle on your wood boards for the nose after applying whitewash paint!

Step 5: Apply whitewash

DIYG Tip:  It’s only necessary to apply whitewash to one face of each wood board and the sides unless you’re planning on placing your snowmen where the backs will be visible

Step 6: Apply polyurethane

Step 7: Glue on Buttons & nose

Step 9: Enjoy your snowman
