Wooden Cube Snowman 


Building your snowman is a simple DIY craft that we absolutely love! If you want guidance on how to construct this project, click here

We have lots of options for wooden cubes that you can use for this project. In addition, we recommend using our ¼ flat head plugs for the buttons and a medium bean pot candle cup for the hat of the snowman.  

Building a cube snowman is an exciting project since it adds a unique and modern twist to the traditional snowman. Instead of the usual round snowman, a cube snowman stands out and unexpectedly displays creativity. 

There are many ways you can use a cube snowman in the winter. You can decorate the snowman with colorful scarves, hats, and accessories to add a cheery touch to your yard. You can also use it as a centerpiece for a winter-themed party or gathering.  

In addition, you can play games with a cube snowman!  While it may not be as easy to build a traditional snowman and have a snowball fight, you can still get creative. For example, you can play a game of "pin the nose on the snowman" by drawing a face on the cube and using a carrot or paper nose. You could also have a contest to see who can create the best cube snowman design. 

Another game you can play is painting letters on each wooden cube and arranging them to create different words, like Scrabble.
