These handmade snowman ornaments are so much fun to create and you only need a few supplies. They make great ornament gifts!
These little ornaments are perfect for using up those random washers at the bottom of that odds and end bucket of unused hardware.
When I was creating these washer ornaments, I had an a-ha moment. I can turn them into snowman ornaments!
They turned out so cute! They are the perfect addition to all of our fun DIY ornaments!

What you need to make your Snowman Christmas Ornaments:
- Washers. Choose 2 that compliment each other size-wise.
- A flange nut. What?! I know… but it was at the bottom of my bucket! You can use a 3rd washer and nut. Play around with sizes to make a hat.
- White yarn.
- Red ribbon.
How to make snowmen out of washers
To create these snowman ornaments, you first need to wrap your washers.
Simply do a smaller washer with a loop and leave the larger one without the loop, then follow the pictures below.
String the leftover yarn, from the bigger washer, up through the smaller washer hole and tie off.
Try to get them as snug together as possible and trim off the extra yarn.
You can use a dab of glue to hold down the end to the back of your ornament. Next, tie off a little bit of red ribbon to create a scarf. A simple knot and a dab of glue will do.
Then add a little glue to the knot at the top and slide your flange nut down onto the top of your snowman’s head.
Let everything dry then hang your washer snowman ornaments up on the tree or wrap up to send to your snowman loving friends!
