Easy Easy Winter Craft Ideas Just for You!

I've been wracking my brain for some interesting winter craft ideas lately. Why? Because this has been a long, cold winter and the kids have been stuck inside for more days than I want to remember.

All of a sudden, it came to me! We should make some snowmen ornaments out of homemade dough! It's a pretty easy craft that's loads of fun. are to join us?

We provide you with simple instructions, and you probably already have everything you're going to need right in your kitchen.

So what do you think? Are you game? C'mon and join us!

Winter Craft Ideas

The idea is really easy. Here's a list of supplies that you'll need:

For the Dough


  • 1 cup of fine salt
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of water (may add more)


  • In a large bowl, combine the salt and the flour
  • Make a well in the salt/flour mixture and add the water
  • Knead until smooth and shape into a ball
  • When not in use, wrap in plastic or store in an airtight container

Instruction for Building the Ornament:

1. As you work with the dough you may have to add more flour to get the consistency you need. Sprinkle water on the dough (when needed) to make it more pliable. Roll it out on a very lightly floured surface.

2. You can use cookie cutters for all kinds of shapes or use our photo for reference in making this snowman. Don't forget to poke a hole in the top of your ornament before you bake it!

3. Use acrylic craft paints because you can get super creative with them! They're available in metallics, irridescents, you name it!

4. Bake in the oven at 250 F for two hours.

5. That's it! You're done! Congratulations on creating a beautiful snowman that is one-of-a-kind!

Once you've finished your snowman dough ornament, keep in mind that we'd love to see what you made. Grab a camera, snap a photo and submit your winter craft ideas to our "Show and Tell"!
