Supplies for Puffy Paint Snowman


  1. First, mix equal parts of liquid white glue and foam shaving cream together. Then add iridescent snow or glitter.
  2. Next, use a cup or any round object to trace two circles on blue cardstock. You can use any shade of blue for your winter backdrop.
  3. Now start painting the circles with the DIY puffy paint to create your snowman.
  4. Finally, cut out a hat from black cardstock, triangle shaped nose from orange cardstock and stick hands from brown cardstock. Add them to your snowman along with the buttons and wiggle eyes. See photo below.
