 Wooden Snowman Christmas Ornament

This idea is perfect if you like to cut wood but are not too into painting the details. By using paper napkins, you can create all sorts of wooden ornaments or figures for your holiday decorating needs. Glitter adds a sparkle to the project but can be left away if desired.

Glitter Wooden Snowman




Time required to make one ornament: about 2 hours (because of drying time)

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List:

- plywood about 4-6 mm thick

- paper napkin with snowman or other motif of choice

(this was the napkin used for this project)

- decoupage glue
- paint matching main colors of motif
- scroll-saw
- clear glue
- iridescent glitter
- wire for hanging
- drill with 1.5 mm bit


1. First, remove all but the top layer of the paper napkin. Apply the motif to the piece of plywood by following the instructions found at Paper Napkin Decoupage Tutorial

2. Let the motif dry completely before continuing.

3. Now saw the motif exactly out with the scroll-saw.

4. Paint the sides of the motif with the matching colors and let dry.

5. For the glittery effect, draw lines around details with the clear glue.

6. Then shake glitter over the wet glue. The glitter will only adhere to the wet glue. Tap off excess glitter and let the glue/glitter dry.

7. Drill a hole at the top of the figure at a point where the ornament will hang straight (not necessarily in the middle, depending on the motif itself) and insert the wire from the backside to the frontside. Coil the ends at the front of the ornament to keep the wire from slipping through and at the other end, where the ornament will hang.
