STEP 2: Prepare craft sticks for the snowman body

Next, prepare the craft sticks by first cutting them in half so you are left with 3 pieces of the same length. Repeat this to create 3 more pieces, this time cutting pieces that are larger than half a craft stick as shown below.

Glue each set of 3 into a star shape, as shown below.

STEP 3: Create the snowman body

Once you have the craft sticks prepared for the body of your snowman, start wrapping them in white yarn in a "God's eye" pattern. Take your yarn and go over and around one stick and then over and around the next one. Keep repeating this until the sticks are covered with yarn.

Repeat this step for both star pieces and secure the end of your yarn in place with hot glue. Apply pressure until the glue has cooled to keep it in place.

Glue your two pieces together so they resemble the shape of a snowman.

STEP 4: Create the snowman hat

Next, it's time to make the snowman hat for your snowman ornament! Start by cutting a craft stick in half, leaving you with two pieces of the same length. Cut another stick so you have one long piece and one short piece. 

Glue all your pieces into the shape of a hat, as shown below.

Wrap the hat using your black yarn and then secure the ends with hot glue. Glue the hat piece to the top of the snowman.

STEP 5: Finish up your snowman ornament

Finish off your snowman ornament by adding an accent of red and green yarns, to resemble a scarf as shown below. You could even add some extra pieces of yarn to resemble some eyes, a nose, or even arms! 

Don't feel like you have to stop here - let your child be creative! Just be sure to supervise when it comes to that hot glue.
