We have owned a white fridge since my oldest daughter was 2 years old and honestly I’m not a big fan…

except at Christmas time.

Every year, without fail, the kids ask if we can make our Christmas Fridge Snowman, so he has now become an annual family tradition!

DIY Snowman Fridge

To transform your drab white fridge, all you need is:

A pad of glitter paper

A roll of Christmas Duck Tape

Double sided cellotape/Glue dots

A pair of scissors

DIY Snowman Materials

Now remember this can be done independently by an older child or with a little assistance, a younger child can do most of this alone. (Just make sure to swap out the scissors for safety scissors.)

1. If your fridge has a drinking water outlet that you don’t mind sealing off till after Christmas, grab some A4 sized white paper and cover the same, using transparent cellotape to hold the same.

2.Now to make uniformly sized eyes for your snowman, get your child to use the mouth of a glass to draw the circles and carefully cut around the outline. Do the same for the mouth with a smaller mouth glass or around a small cellotape roll.DIY Snowman (3)

3. For the nose, draw a triangle on the orange paper and cut on the outline.

4. The eyes, nose and circles for the mouth can be stuck on the fridge with double sided cellotape or Glue Dots.

5. For the scarf, we chose to use a festive patterned Duck tape only because the scarf is at the level my 10 month old can reach. So anything not as strong will find itself picked off and chewed on!


You can also raise the scarf a little higher and add buttons to the bottom.

And there you have it! Mr Snowman is done and your fridge couldn’t have looked cuter!


Have your kids undertaken any handmade holiday projects this Christmas?



  1. My kids make all kinds of homemade things in school and bring them home for me to proudly display. Which I do 🙂

  2. What a cute idea! And easy to make too! My kids love creating things any time of the year. They love coloring and drawing. They did make a gingerbread house this year together, too!

  3. We did a snowman door last year, and the kids loved it. This year we did fingerprint Christmas lights.

  4. Yes! My girls went to the local college and did out 10 different craft stations. It was such a blast! I love your snowman fridge. Makes me want to buy a white fridge now!

  5. What a cute snowman. That is a great idea. I have a white fridge. I never thought about doing something like that.

  6. We do holiday crafts ever season. We’ve had some changes in life and my health hasn’t been so great so we haven’t been able to keep up with things as we usually do.

  7. So clever! I don’t have the tools needed at home and I’m a little scared to venture to Target on Christmas Eve, so I’ll have to keep it in mind for next year!

  8. We love handmade holiday craft projects. We do a lot of handprint crafts every year. I LOVE the snowman fridge. It is one that can stay up all winter long!

  9. If we had a white frig, I would definitely make this! It’s very cute. My teenage daughter decorated her room with snowflakes and green and red streamers.

  10. This is such a cute idea! I know our kids would love to design something like this! Thanks for sharing.

  11. WOW! I just noticed this awesome amazing Snowman on the fridge idea for the Holidays! I will have to make this next year with my son. He would love creating this. Thanks for the idea!

  12. That is such a cute and fun idea! My grandsons would love it, and would love showing it off to guests!

  13. Oh that is so cute! What a great idea! Carter is so into Olaf and snowmen….think we have about 10 in our backyard now! He would love to make one on the fridge!!! Thanks for the fun idea! Cant wait to do this with him!

    1. You can definitely change out the eyes to make it Olaf looking! Great way to show your #DisneySide !
