It’s amazing the super cute things you can create just by wrapping an item in yarn. It’s one of my favorite things to do, if you’ve been around long enough you probably know that. And so easy and fun, plus a great fine motor activity for even the littlest of kids.

To get the poms to stick to the paper cup, I suggest glue dots. They are a lifesaver. Hot glue will work, as well, but I really try to not to use hot glue when crafting with kids.

  • Paper cups
  • Multicolor yarn
  • Markers – black, orange
  • Poms
  • Scissors
  • School glue
  • Glue dots

Yarn Wrapped Snowman Step by Step Instructions

Begin with a paper cup. Our paper cups had a design at the top, but that’s OK since it will be covered.

Apply glue to paper cup.

Flip the cup over so the top is now the bottom and apply a thin layer of school glue to the bottom ⅓ or so of the cup. We used the line already on our cup as the guide.

Cut long strand of yarn and begin wrapping.

Now, snip a long strand of multicolor yarn. Leave some of the beginning end of the yarn free and start wrapping the rest around the glue on the cup.

Tie ends together.

Once you get to the end of the yarn, tie the ends together to form a scarf. Snip away any excess.

Draw a face with a black and an orange marker.

Next, draw a face for your snowman with a black marker for the eyes and mouth. Use an orange marker for the carrot nose.

Glue a small piece of yarn over the top of the cup.

Then, cut a small piece of the same colored yarn. Position the yarn over the top of the snowman and glue the ends in place where ears would be.

Position poms in place for earmuffs.

And finally, adhere the poms in place to make your cozy snowman some earmuffs.
