We wanted to re-use these juice bottles and the kids thought that they would make the perfect snowman or snow woman.  We show you a basic idea that you can then personalize and “make your own”!  Who doesn’t love a recycled craft!?  


  • Pom juice bottles
  • Paper towel
  • Glue
  • Water
  • Decorating items (paper, felt, buttons, model magic- use whatever you have on hand!)
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun/ glue
  • Old paintbrush
  • Nose/ Top Hat Template: snowperson shapes

We always find these items useful too:



  • Cut your paper towel into strips.
  • Paint glue onto your pom bottle with an old paint brush, then add a strip and cover it in a thin layer of glue, similar to papier mache.
  • While your snow person is wet, decorate it!  We formed a carrot nose using model magic over top of cardstock, a felt hat, some buttons and coal made out of model magic!  (Here’s our template if you want to use these ideas too: snowperson shapes )  This really is a chance to use up all the odds and ends that you have!   We’d love to see your snow people- please tag us on Instagram- we sure to enjoy sharing reader creations in our stories!  Tip: (For a baby snow person, trim the nose template down.  Prop your nose up with a yogurt container to hold it in place or glue it on with a glue gun once your snow person is dry)
  • Allow to dry overnight.  (Depending on the humidity where you live, this may need to be a longer process).

Pin this idea

Re-use juice containers to make these three dimensional snow people! This recycled craft is one that children can personalize with items that you have at home, along with a bit of Model Magic. Make a snowman, snow woman and baby to create a whole snow person family for a winter craft scene.


  • Re-using different materials for creating and play.

Safety Notes

  • We suggest that you use a tray and a smock to protect your clothing and surfaces.
  • Use scissors and a glue gun with care and direct, adult supervision.
  • Cord, yarn etc. can be a strangulation hazard, therefore be sure to use with direct supervision and for its intended purpose.
  • Beads can be a choking hazard, therefore be sure to keep them out of the reach of children ages 0-3 years of age or those that tend to put things into their mouths.
