Snowman Wreath Tutorial

Someone asked me the other day how many seasonal wreaths I have. 12. I have 12. I’ve actually given away quite a few (and a couple have broken- sad face).

But, believe it or not, I really didn’t have any that worked well on our new front door for the holidays. Last year I purchased an evergreen wreath on sale at the last minute. I gave away Santa and Rudolph the year before! The felt pomp wreath goes over our fireplace.

Well, we all know what this means. I made a new wreath- a jumbo snowman wreath! I know he might not look “jumbo” here, but our door is huge.


You know I love me an EASY DIY, and this one is certainly that, but I will say he’s not inexpensive, especially if going the jumbo route. Hopefully I’ll get a few year’s use out of him to make up for it. (Total cost was about $55-$60 for this jumbo size.)

Here’s whatcha need, which isn’t much:


First, RUN to Target’s Dollar Spot and get you that top hat for $3. If you miss out, you can get a top hat on Amazon, though I think it’s a touch bigger.

You’ll need either a small scarf, or fabric to make a scarf. I picked up some clearance flannel and used about 3/4 yard to make mine.

A corn cob pipe

For this jumbo wreath, I used 7 white feather marabou boas. Honestly, 8 would have been best. If you make a smaller wreath, obviously you’ll need fewer. The great part about using white ones is it won’t matter much if the white from the wreaths show through.

That leads me to the wreaths. Here’s a picture with all the info of the exact ones I purchased.


That’s a 13.8″ and an 18″ extruded foam wreath, and if you’re doing the jumbo, yes, you need both.

They should fit perfectly and snugly, one inside the other.


*The reason I did two wreaths was to decrease the inner space and make the wreath seem fluffier. Another option, which would be less expensive, but more work, would be to create a white tulle wreath. The tulle pieces are longer and fluffier, and you won’t need that inner wreath form. Plus tulle is much cheaper than feather boas. 

My wreaths fit so snugly that I didn’t feel like I needed to glue them together, but you certainly could for extra security.


I wrapped my feather boas around the wreath, hot glueing the ends to secure them. I left a little spot for the scarf to tie.

IMG_6326There’s no right or wrong way to do this, but I did it with 2 separate pieces.


IMG_6331I cut the top hat in half (so technically you could get 2 wreaths out of one), so it would lay flat against the door. I secured it to the wreath with long pins. Eventually I’ll get around to coloring those yellow heads with a black Sharpie.


I also used the pins to add a ribbon for hanging to the back.


All that was left was to insert his corn cob pipe. I pressed it between the boa, into the styrofoam wreath sideways. You could secure it with hot glue if it doesn’t feel snug enough.


And that’s all you have to do to make a jolly happy soul with a corn cob pipe to adorn your doorway.
