How to make a paper bag snowman

Create it!

Combine newspapers and paper bags!

Step 1: Create a ball from newspaper.

Step 2: Place the newspaper ball inside the paper bag and tie it closed with a piece of yarn or string.

Step 3: Paint the rounded portion of the paper bag white and allow it to dry.

Make the paper snowman's hat!

Step 4: From painted cardboard or cardstock, cut a hat shape. We cut two shapes – a main portion and one for the brim  – and glued them together.

Step 5: Cut cardstock and glue a hat band to the hat.

Step 6: Glue the hat to the top portion of the paper bag.

Step 7: From cardstock or painted cardboard, cut a nose and eyes for your snowman.
