Winter Kids Craft Using Upcycled Bottles and Cans

on December 31, 2014

I saw this idea floating on Pinterest this season, and so I was pleasantly surprised to see our local community light display organizers had made these cute snowmen for their winterscape light display. And they hung them from tree branches – a great touch. These DIY snowmen made such a cute display.

They used plastic bottles and aluminum cans. I’m sure a small collection could be saved in no time at all. They painted them white and added the face with permanent marker.

The plastic bottle snowmen got little snow hats made of fabric scraps while the can snowmen got ear muffs made of puff balls and pipe cleaners. A colorful, festive ribbon made a perfect scarf for the snowmen.

So cute and a clever way to reuse empty cans and bottles. And it seems easy to do. This craft is definitely on my list for next year when my kid is a little older!
