How to make a snowman wreath:

I painted the eyes first so that they could dry.

I drew a carrot out of felt, sewed together and then stuffed. I then set this aside.

I took 2 wreath forms and put the smaller one inside the larger one then zip tied on 4 sides so they were tight.

I cut the mesh into 9 or 10 inch pieces. I did one roll at a time. When done cutting I took one piece and lay flat in front of me. I gathered in the center by walking my finger up from bottom. I used the pipe cleaner to tie and attach to form

I started and went around in a circle on out side first then worked my way in. I attached face and hat with hot glue gun.

I’m sorry but I drew the mouth and cut it out, without using a pattern. You can decorate the hat any way you want and attach with glue.

Tada done!

  1. Hi Peggy
    I really like your snowman wreath, so I bought the material. I had quite a problem with the mesh – I cut the material and followed the rest of your instructions but the material frayed badly. I got frustrated and put the job aside and then I moved and stored some of my goods. I finally found the wreath and tried to watch your video again but it said video one is not available. I wonder if you could send the video to me again and let me know what kind of mesh you used and yours looks fabulous. Thank you for posting the videos and letting people know how to make them. I greatly appreciate any assistance you can give me. Have a wonderful day.

  2. The first video did not show how or where to attached the netting to the wreath form, and the second one picked up at the hat.

  3. Hi Peggy having trouble with part of your video on the Snow Man Wreath can you send me the instructions, I would really appreciate it I just love it.

    Thank You

  4. Hi Peggy, could you email me the instructions for the snowman… I can’t find the video & I love it!!!

  5. Hi Peggy, this is awesome. I was watching part 1 and it ended as you were tying the mesh with a pipe cleaner. The 2nd part begins with you decorating the completed wreath. How did you attach the mesh to the wreath form ? Do you have another video or could you send me the instructions, please? I want to make this for my classroom door.
    Thank you,

  6. Hi Peggy, Ready to make this lovely wreath however part one does not show how to place white “stuff”. Would you please email me? Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful wreath!

  7. I was looking for your dress form tree tutorial and this came up. Although it is cute, not what I was looking for Where Id the tutorial located? Thanks

  8. Hi Peggy,
    This is the cutest wreath. I bought everything to make it and am ready to start. I watched your video and it ended when you were cutting the mesh into 10″ squares. The 2nd part of your video picked up with you already done with the mesh and working on the hat. I didn’t see how you attached the mesh to the wire and where to begin. Can you please email it to me? I checked youtube and same thing. Thank you. Can’t wait to make this wreath.

  9. Love your video and thanks so much for sharing it! Can anyone tell me where you found the foam hat? I can’t find them ?

  10. Do you skip any rows putting on the mesh? Your first video is missing this info. Your snowman is truly the best. Thanks in advance. I can’t find another way to contact you

  11. Thanks Peggy, I just finished making one for work. I found organza ribbon 6″ wide that were just a dollar so I used that , 3 rolls and it looks great. I just sewed on buttons for the eyes.

  12. On the snowman wreath made by Mrs. Peggy, is there anyway she can estimate how many “bows” for lack of a better word, was put on the outer ring of the form??? I think I’m trying to put too many because I almost finished with the first roll of mesh and had barely gotten finished with the second section. Is there a magical number per section??? Thanks so much for your help.
    Lisa Phillips.

  13. Peggy– I can’t seem to decide on what size hat you used for the snowman. Hobby Lobby has various sizes online as do other sites. Did you use craft foam or felt for the hat. What size did you use. About how many inches in total is the edge of the left side of brim to the edge of the right side of the brim?

  14. Peggy Bond THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful and beautiful showman project. I have been looking for a year now for the supplies and finally have everything I need. I will be making it this year thanks to your kindness in showing us a video. Having a rough time with the shape of the nose and mouth and wish you had a pattern to share as at 80 I don’t think I will ever be a drawer. Guess I will make it work somehow. Do you have any other projects that you are willing to share. As I see that you said that you were giving lessons somewhere.

    I know some people are nasty and hurt your feelings.. . .but I for one appreciate your kindness and talent.

  15. Peggy,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to do the video on the snowman wreath. It was very easy to follow. You made a hero out of me when I delivered one each to my two daughters.
    You made me and my family very happy.
    God bless you and your family!
    Merry Christmas Peggy!

    1. How much mesh was put on the frame? She didn’t show how to attach and how many she used. Could you share that information.

  16. Thank you for sharing your snowman with us, I hope I can make mine look like yours!
    It was very helpful to me!!

    Happy Holidays to you and your family!

  17. Thanks for the idea! Four of us made one this weekend. It took about 6 hours. Over two days. Phew! Came out very cute! Made them using 18 and 12 inch frames. Saw your video after I bought supplies. That may be why it took a little longer. Although cutting the mesh and twisting the pipe cleaners took a while as well.

  18. Peggy bond YOU ROCK!!!! I just watched your video on the snowman wreath and can’t wait to make it! Thanks so much for making the video …… much easier to see it put together. Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing more projects. The snowman wreath is breathtakingly beautiful!

  19. Hi Peggy this snowman looked so great. So I just finished making one today.
    Thanks for the directions. It worked out so easy.I love it. You did a really great job in
    showing us how easy it is to make.

  20. Hi Peggy. this snowman wreath is adorable!! Is there a possibility to get patterns for your nose and mouth that you made!. Love the way that you made them

  21. How long is the mouth? Have an artist friend that would do much better than me but don’t know how big to make it…..thx!


  22. Zip ties can also be found at Hobby Lobby in the craft section by the doll houses.
    You now have one stop for everything! I enjoyed your tutorials , thank you for your time doing this for us. I hope to make one real soon.

  23. I made the snowman n turned out wonderful. Question…Did u cut out the mouth with sizzors? It’s real rough. or maybe that doesn’t really matter. I tryed a razor but that did make it a little smoother but dangerous. Any suggestions?

  24. when putting the mesh on the wire do you connect the top 2 wires or one wire, this is so beautiful can’t wait to start mine thanks so much 🙂

  25. Is there any possible way to have a copy of the mouth sent or posted to be printed out. I can not get the mouth correct.

  26. Is there a trick to painting the eyes? I do not have very steady hands, so the easiest way possible would be greatly appreciated

    1. Hi Mary the cost will vary depending where you are but there arent a lot of materials needed for this project.. apart from the mesh, pipe cleaners and wreath forms 🙂

    2. Mary, I went to Hobby Lobby this evening and purchased 2 wreath forms, 1 piece of orange felt, pipe cleaners, and a foam hat. I purchased 21 inch deco mesh because they didn’t have 10 inch in the Christmas section and Christmas items were 40% off. I spent less than 25.00. I still have to get a few more things but I figured I’d make sure I did the other first, lol.

  27. Hi Peggy, question for you. I finished the outside ring, skipped one, started the second ring. I can see the green wreath form inbetween. Will that fill in as you continue or maybe it needs more mesh? I have 10 pieces each section on the first ring. Thank you

  28. Awesome tutorial, I just did the first ring tonight. Hope I can find a hat. Thank you for taking the time to do this.

  29. Thank you so much for posting the videos for the snowman wreath! I finished one today and I’m in love!

  30. Peggy, I am so excited to get started making this adorable wreath! I loved the videos! I belong to an auxiliary that raises money to send kids that have been burned to a special camp, each campership is $750 and we send 3-4 kids every summer, so I will make them for the auction. Which size wood ovals did you use? There are so many. Thank you sooo much for this adorable project. I have signed up for your newsletter and can’t wait for them to be posted. Maybe there will be more projects to be made for the auction.

  31. I just made this snowman… my mesh at Michaels…..35 feet on each roll & I did use all of the rolls. I found HUGE wiggily eyes at Michaels & used them. I found a black felt hat at Target in the $ section. I didn’t use a bow on the hat & it looks fine. I gloed the nose together & then stuffed it. I used 3 round circles cut from heavy card stock for the mouth….to look like coal I have used Aleene’s Super thick Tacky Glue in a jar for many projects & it worked fine for glueing the nose together. After I was done I put some LED (bright white….took the caps off) lights into the back. I really wish I could upload a picture….he looks so cool !.

  32. I love this. I wish I had seen this when I was doing my decor this year. My theme this year happens to be snowmen and snowflakes, but I will keep this for next year.

  33. Thank you so much for the wonderful wreath idea. I had a couple of friends over last night and we had a blast making this adorable snow man. I wish I could post a picture of ours.. Thank you again ❤?

      1. I found some at Walmart in the Christmas isle. 36 ft decorative fabric comes in 2 roll packs. I’m just starting on the wreath so I’ll have to see if this works the same.

  34. Hi Peggy,

    The wreath is so cute and is just what I’m looking for! Have you ever thought about selling them? I am very interested and would love to buy one!! If not I will just have to get the supplies and watch your videos 🙂

    Happy Holidays !

  35. I started making this but not sure on how many you tie per section? Do you fill it tight from one point to the other then go to the next section etc. If so I think the 3 rolls won’t be enough? Or do I put a few in each section then skip down two rows?! Also do I tie pipe cleaner around the two wire rings in rows or just very top (single) rows. Hope I’ve explained it, sorry a little confused. Love this!!!

  36. Your wreath is beautiful. I truly appreciate you doing the tutorial. I will be making this in the future. Please don’t get discourage, I would love you to share other great ideas. Thank you again.

  37. Well done. This is awesome..working on it now. Can’t wait until it is finished. Your instructions are easy to follow. Thanks so much!!

  38. I just made this wreath for my 88 year old Mother who lives in an assisted living facility. It turned out really good and Mom and her friends love Mr Snowman. Thanks

  39. I cant find the deco mesh 10 inch any where here. There is a ton of tulle but no 10 inch deco. I have seen the 21 inch kind but ive seen people say it freys. Can u use tull in place of the mesh or no. Any other ideas? Thanls for the pattern its the cuttest thing ever

    1. I used the 21 “. I found a video on YouTube showing you how to use it. Basically you cut your 10” piece then fold the cut ends in so they meet. Then fold the entire piece in half, then at the half way mark again…is where you scrunch the piece together and attach you pipe cleaner. Hope this makes sense. 🙂 (look on youtube for inscructions)

  40. Will it stop fraying? I had to get 21 inch roll and 18″ & 12″ rings. Figured he would just be bigger. Now scared that I wasted money and about to waste this time doing it wrong. ?

    1. When you cut down 21 inch it frays bad, I’ve never done so can’t really tell you if it will work,. I wish you luck.

      1. When I watched your instruction video it ended just as you started to decorate the snowman’s hat, where can I view the whole video?

    2. I could only find the 12 inch ring, I then purchased “stem wire ” to make a X in the middle of the wire wreath. I used the stem wire to attach my pieces too. 🙂

    3. Better to fold the 21″, cutting it will give you another raw edge and will continue to fray. Found that out the hard way. If you check Trendy Tree website, they show you how to use the 21″ to make a ruffle wreath.

  41. Anyone know if her Deco mesh had a sparkle to it. It seemed to shine. I like that look and most of the deco mesh I’ve seen is flat white. Thanks

  42. I cannot find the deco mesh in 10″ size…only 20″ and then I end up having to cut it and it frays really bad, making a big mess. Any suggestions as to where to find the 10″ rolls? I”ve checked at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s and JoAnnes…no luck. Thank you. Love the snowman!

        1. I couldn’t find 10″ deco mesh, but I was able to find 12″ iridescent white decomesh at Michaels. I am currently making the wreath right now (taking a break right now…lol) and the 12″ seems to be working pretty well. I just cant get it to stop fraying as I bunch it up.

  43. I love the Snowman wreath! Thank you for sharing and the tutorial. I have no issues with it. Have purchased all of my supplies except the 10″ deco mesh. I can’t find it anywhere. Had my husband go 20 miles out of the way to a 2nd Hobby Lobby where they said they would hold 3 of the 10″ rolls. When he got there they were the 21″ rolls and they told him to have me cut them in half. I told him no, they would fray. Can’t find them online either. Suggestions?? Thanks!

  44. I love the wreath, I have to make 2 for my daughters, started one just having trouble with making the nose and doing the eyes, any chance of posting a way of getting the pattern for the eyes and nose to look like yours? Thanks!

  45. Hi Peggy,
    Could you please get in touch with me? I really want to chat with you about your amazing wreath. I have left you my e-mail address above. Thx so much. Joanne Martin.

  46. Thank you so much. I’m all about doing crafty presents this year and this is so darn cute. Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful holiday!!


    1. i used pipe cleaners and made a cross (more like a target) in the middle of the frame. make sure it’s tight. then used more pipe cleaners along the sections of the cross to attach the mesh to

    2. A suggestion for the center- I had used a cookie cooling rack in my center (2/$! Dollar Tree) I used pipe cleaners to attach it. It worked out great. Saw the idea on another tutorial where someone made a snowman

    1. Wrapping from the outside in gives you better indication of exactly how much fill you have to do in the center of the wreath. I bulked up the outside and next row in, as Peggy illustrated, and by the time I got to the middle, I only had to add 4-5 pieces.

  48. Thank you very much for taking the time to share the awesome videos and instructions regarding how you made your snowman wreath, Peggy. I greatly appreciate the selfless giving of your time & energy in order to share your design with others. It is adorable & I am excited to get started on making one! Thank you for inspiring me. Blessings, Dee

  49. Thank you so much!! The video helped a ton! Going to get my supplies today and getting started! My house is Snowman themed! He is gonna make a great addition, I may even make him a girl?

  50. Thanks so much for sharing this!!! I am not crafty at all, but have followed your instructions and am well on my way to finishing. Can’t wait to make a few for family and friends!!!!

      1. How do you keep the mesh from fraying apart? Do you recommend spraying adhesive on it before adding the eyes etc? As I’m putting mine together I find a need to keep trimming the treads that are “unweaving”. Thanks!

      1. Grill designs, I can’t find the 8 inch frame at any craft store or nursery, do you know where else I could look? Maybe online?

        1. I’ve read that you can use foam tubing from home improvement stores in place of wreath forms, and that it’s puch cheaper. Just duct tape the ends together. Or you could use a pool noodle and cut it to size.

  51. Thank you for the great video. The only question I have is about how long is your nose template? I don’t sew, but did you make two pieces of your template and sew them together or did you make one and sew that? Do you have approximate dimensions for the template? Thank you so much. I just don’t want a nose that is too short.


  52. Thank you for sharing your creative snowman wreath idea and taking the time to re-create the video … I thought you explained it well and can’t wait to purchase the supplies and get started making one for myself – Happy Holidays and, again, thank you for sharing!

  53. Beautiful job. Thank you for sharing. As a SS it is hard to take classes when our funds are limited. Too bad others don’t appreciate your thoughtfulness in sharing your talents. .

    The video is AWESOME! I am a visual person and the video sure helped. I will be making this with my grandchildren.. I hope I will be able to find more of your ideas and projects.. Do you have a website?.

  54. Love this Snowman Wreath. Thanks for the instructions. One question…do you finish the back of the wreath at all or are all the pipe cleaners left exposed?

  55. Thsnks so much for posting! I am NOT handy but definately have to try this…he is so cute. I am in the Midwest and cannot get the white deco mesh. It is white metallic…I think that should b ok…next…can only get the deco meshin 5.5 , all u DIY ‘s. ..should I cut it still in the 9 ,10 inches? Thanks for your input in advance!!!

      1. I LOVE your wreath and your instructions are wonderful!!! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us – I greatly appreciate it and can’t wait to make one!!! (When my family sees it – there may be more than one made!!!) Merry Christmas!!!

  56. I’m having trouble finding 10′ mesh. I can find 21″ easily. Is it possible to use the 21′ and cut it in half lengthwise and get the same effect.

      1. Thank you Peggy for responding to my first email about cutting the mesh in half. Luckily I found the 10in at another hobby lobby. I am not crafty at all but have gotten most of him done. I’m now trying to do his face. I like several others would like more detail on your patter for nose and mouth. Thank you so much. I have really enjoyed working on this

  57. Thank you so much for your step by step video. It was very informative, I am a show me person so that helps me a lot. Hope to make these for my family. I know they will love them.

    1. I got it at a Hobby Lobby where they have different hats not in the Xmas stuff. Where are you getting the 10in white deco mesh….I have been every where in S. California and can not get it.

      1. Pam Dotson, I found mine in the floral section at hobby lobby, they have all colors there including the white I bought has irredescent running through it, and I just started working on it and it’s beautiful, they also have a gingerbread color I think I’m going to make a gingerbread wreath next,, got the wreath wire there too

      2. Pam hope you found the deco mesh where I told you….I found it in their floral section, not by the fabric…but when I bought the wire frames I bout what I thought was the 8 and 12 but it was 12 and 16, so now I’m having trouble finding the 8 inch ? But it is very pretty so far…

  58. I just love this wreath!! You did a great job making the explained it step by step very clearly!! The question I have is have you ever added lights, the type that are very small.

  59. I would like to thank you for taking the time to show us in your tutorial video you’ve made, also for your hubby (I’m assuming) that recorded it. You did a great job explaining everything, if only some people would watch and listen to what you say in the video they wouldn’t be so quick to jump at you or ask stupid questions that you’ve clearly explained already. Just because you didn’t say “attach the nose….” in a specific way alone, you did state that you hot glued the FACE on and I would imagine that includes the nose, after all it is a part of the FACE. SMH, some people…..anyway, I love this snowman and plan to make a few of them (one for myself of course). Would love to see some of your other projects that you make, your very talented. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

    1. Thank you so much. I am so much a visual learner and your videos helped me very much. I am excited to attempt this. Thank you again.

  60. I love your snowman! Thank you sooo much for sharing your diy project with wonderful directions! I will be making one for myself asap!

  61. Could you tell me what size hat? and how many & what length pipe cleaners. Thank you so much I will definitely be making one of these for myself. You did a great job.

  62. Love the snowman but your part 1 video cut off before you made the bow for the hat. Do you have a video on how to make the bow? Don’t know what type of ribbon or how much ribbon to use and I don’t know how to make a bow like yours. I figured out the strip part along the rim of the hat. Thanks

  63. This is the cutest wreath and I am so glad you made the video to show us what to do. I think I might try to make a full size snowman! Wish me luck 🙂

  64. Gorgeous! Do you make these and sell? Price not a problem. Have arthritis in hands and can’t make one. Thank you for your time and have a Happy Holidays. It can even wait until after the holidays because I am sure that you are busy.

  65. I do trust all of the ideas you have introduced for your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.|

  66. Love it! Thank you so much, I will be making this for my home this Christmas. So thoughtful of you to do this video. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving day.

  67. I love love love this and have been scrambling around to find the 10″ deco mesh in white with no success. I bought 21 in thinking I could cut it in half but I see that it frays easily. I am still going to make it using the 21 in and see how it comes out. Thank you for the tutorial though. It was very helpful! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

    1. Did you use the 21″ Deco mesh. I could not find the 10″ either so bought the 21″ but now I am wondering if it going to be worth all the work to cut the 21″ or should I order the 10″ online and return the 21″ because of the fraying. Just curious? Thanks.

  68. Peggy, Thank you so much for Sharing this despite the nasty people!! I am so sorry for the ignorant slobs that were so harsh because they video cut off. I laughed that if they couldn’t figure it out they should be doing DIY. I’m going to attempt this and hang it in my classroom then take it home to enjoy over Christmas break. Happy Thanksgiving Peggy and a very Blessed Christmas to you and your family from someone who appreciates you in Colorado.

  69. TIP – if you lay all 3 rolls of mesh down together on a cutting mat, you can use a rotary cutter to cut all 3 layers at once. Saves a ton of time and also helps you make straight & exact cuts.

  70. I can’t wait to make him this weekend….Glad I got to see the whole video….didn’t want to make any mistakes….Thank you Peggy….

  71. I too LOVE snowmen! I normally don’t particular care for wreaths made with the mesh, but I SO LOVE YOUR SNOWMAN! And was so excited you did a video tutorial as I didn’t understand the scrunching of the mesh between the fingers, I do now. Amazing, I can’t wait to make my very own.

  72. I know you said to start on the outer part of the wreath form and then come 2 down. Whar number of the wreath form is after the second down from the outer? Thank you and what an awesome job you have done.

  73. Loved the wreath and great video. Very easy to understand. Thank you so much. Will make great old fashioned Christmas gifts.

  74. Thank you so much for making the video I think you did a fabulous job on the video!! I can’t wait to make it you are so talented!! 🙂

  75. Thank you for sharing this wreath with us and for taking the time to do the videos. I do need clarification about one thing, not because you didn’t say, but because I want to be sure I understood correctly.
    After completing the first, outer row of deco mesh, you said to go 2 rings for the next row of mesh. Are we to skip 2 rings and begin next row of mesh on 3rd ring? or skip 1 row and begin new row of mesh on 2nd ring from previous row?
    Thank you again.

  76. I thousands of course’s with tool in them. The easiest way to cut tooL cut yourself a piece of cardboard. Then wrap it many many times with the tool cut off each side and they’re all done it all done. do it again wrap it cut off each side and you’ve got more tool all done that way you don’t have to guesstimate waste your time or anything. It’s so much easier this way just keep rappin cutting and wrapping and cutting and they’ll be all done in a minute or two.

      1. Do you know approximately the cost of one? Please send instant message to send Sandy Zainey. I have a sea lion part of my pic. Thank you so much! Luv it

  77. Would you ever think of making and selling them? I would buy one for sure. Being disable it’s hard to go to the store to get the supplies I would need.

  78. I love the snowman. I collect them and I plan to have mine made by the time the collection comes out in January. You have inspired me. My imagination is dreaming up lots of variations for more holidays. I see a witch in my future. THANK YOU for sharing.

  79. Absolutely love him! Awesome tutorial! You made it look so easy that I might just have to try it! Thank you for sharing!

  80. As soon as you said that your Mom is a snowman finatic, I literally said, “Yup! Me too!” Thank you so much for sharing this idea and walking us through the proccess. This look super simple ♡

      1. How much would you charge me to make me one and send it to me. I tried to make it and it did not turn out right please let me know

  81. Love this this snowman wreath I am going to try to make him! We don’t have a hobby store though just hope I can find a hat, what does everyone think of a girly type hat?

  82. This is the cutest thing ever! I’m hoping from your instructions, video, and your follow up answers I can replicate your work. Thanks so much for sharing! Hobby lobby, here I come.

  83. How do you place the mesh on the metal of the wreath. Form wise. I’d hate to mess up. Your video just went to the twisting of the pipe cleaners

  84. Thanks for your video. I have everything except the hat. Going to start cutting now! I love the snowman, he’s going to match my snowman dishes. Thanks again!
