If you’ve already got a ton of tulle around, you probably have most of the additional supplies required. Like our last handful of wreaths, this one focuses more on creating a traditional snowman face and is very lightweight. The difference is that this snowman wreath has a more wispy, flashy appearance and has the consistency of a tutu. Adorable!

Are you a fan of minimalist décor? Perhaps you want to make a snowman wreath decoration that’s a bit more on the rustic side and less on the Christmas side? This tutorial is definitely for you, and it’s unbelievably easy. Even if you aren’t particularly crafty, you’ll have no problem making this snowman decoration in less than an hour. The basic components of this rustic wreath are grapevine wreaths, which have a natural appearance. You don’t even have to spray-paint the wreaths if you want to opt for something a bit more forest-like. However, the spray-paint can add some unique dimensions and textures.

This snowman face wreath is quite minimal and doesn’t require too much cutting, so even young children can enjoy taking part in this fun craft. When you’re finished, these wreaths can be hung anywhere, but we recommend keeping them indoors.

Which DIY Snowman Wreath Will You Choose?
