31 Flavors of Snowmen

December 1, 2009 in Christmas, Crafts

Now that Thanksgiving’s over and we’ve had a couple of snowfalls, it’s time to focus on my favorite snow-time friends and begin the countdown to the New Year. Over the last 25 years, I’ve drawn innumerable snowmen and I still love these chunky circles of snow. It is amazing how much personality emerges every time I put pencil to paper and begin the snowman sketching process. I thought you’d enjoy a rundown (better than meltdown!) of snowmen over the years, so I’ve picked 31 favorites and will present a new snowman each day during December for you to download and use for ornaments, gift tags, scrapbook pages or even an Advent Snowman Tree.

Here are a couple of ornament ideas to get you started on our 31 days of Snowman Fun. Enjoy using these downloadable snowmen for all your paper crafting projects. Little ones will love making construction paper ornaments and counting down to the end of December with these cute snowmen.
