How to Make a Snowman Christmas Tree For Under $50!

Making a Snowman Christmas Tree for under $50!


This is the first year that I have ever seen a Snowman Christmas Tree and I thought it was the coolest thing and easiest too. I figured since I am displaced and taking care of my mom this Christmas season, I might as well make the best of it and the cheapest way I could. I suppose that I could go without a tree or just do my mom’s big ceramic tree, but I love Christmas so that isn’t an option.

We are stuck in the house due to the lake effect snow we had the past 2 days, no, I mean literally stuck in the house because the snow is half way up the doors and we can’t get out. Luckily, I had purchased my Snowman Christmas Tree items before it all happened. I also want to say that this is the first time ever that I have put up any Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving.


How to make a snowman Christmas tree for under $50. Being displaced at mom's house with no Christmas decorations, I was able to improvise & make it special.


Snowman Christmas Tree Supplies:

6.5 ft. pre lit white Christmas Tree – Walmart $39.99.

Red and White scarf – in my closet. You can use any color scarf or material you have on hand.

Box of Little black ornaments – Hobby Lobby $1.99.

Box of big black ornaments – Hobby Lobby $3.99.

Orange pom pom – Walmart .50.

Black hat – Black sprayed coffee can with a round circle cardboard brim also spray painted. Tie a red ribbon around the base and place on the top of the tree. I actually purchased a black hat tree topper just because I knew it would be too cold to spray paint.

You can also make it cheaper by spray painting some styrofoam balls for the eyes, mouth and buttons if you wanted to. And if I would have thought of it sooner, I probably could have found a white Christmas at a yard sale, on Craigslist or even at Goodwill. 

I love it and think he came out great. When life throws you lemons….make lemonade. I always try to make the best of any situation as much as I can.

Have you ever had to improvise before?
