Snowman Snack Cups

Here in sunny Florida we don’t get any snow. That is why I am extra excited for these snowman snack cups! My snow comes in marshmallow form and decorations. For day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas I made these adorable little snowman cups you can use them for drinks or snacks. They are really simple to make and turned out just adorable. They would be cute for a kids party or kids class treats. Adults would love them too! My daughter kind of helped to make them. Ok she mostly listened to Christmas music, chatted with me, and ate marshmallows while I made them but it was fun quality time. We had a quality time Christmas Day and it was the best! Crafts, snacks, Christmas music, a Christmas parade, night time hot chocolate, and Christmas lights. We had a Christmas binge and it was the best time ever!

white cups

black and orange sharpies

red tissue paper(pictured above is red ribbon and that works too but I ended up using tissue paper)



  1. Take a piece of tissue paper and measure around the cup. Cut a piece off the is about 2 inches long and half of the width of a piece of tissue paper. Measure to make sure the tissue paper wraps around the cup with about 3 inches extra.
  2. Fold the piece of tissue paper down twice.
  3. Tape one end to the front side of the cup, about halfway down the cup, and wrap it around.
  4. Wrap the tissue paper around the front and fold it down when it is slightly overlapping.
  5. Tape the back of the tissue paper that is overlapping.
  6. Cut fringe pieces at the ends.
  7. Draw two dots on the bottom for buttons .
  8. Directly above the buttons draw with a sharpie eyes, a carrot nose, and a mouth as shown above. I made the buttons largest, the eyes a bit smaller and the mouth just small dots with the sharpie.
