Crafty Snowman Christmas Table: Party Styling Ideas, Printables and Inspiration

A craft oriented table can look just as cute as any other, and will ensure the kids are entertained for hours! For this table, I was inspired by Bird's Party Snowman Printables but changed up the colors to aqua and red.

The backdrop is made by hanging punched out rounds of colored cardstock to fishing line and hanging form the ceiling with a little hook. This is an easy and inexpensive way to add color to a blank wall, and help tie in the table color scheme. 

An ornate-framed mirror is transformed into a welcoming hanging sign with the help of some scrap-booking paper.

Crafty Snowman Christmas Table: Table Decor and Place-settings

Inspired by snowmen, we covered empty food cans in printable scrap-booking paper (FREE snowman-face printable jar wrappers templates at, pompoms and pipe cleaners for the ear muffs. We then used the cans to display all our crafty supplies for the kids to use.

Because this table will get quite messy due to all the crafts, we opted for a wipe-clean tablecloth material and disposable place mats, plates, napkins, cutlery and glasses that we embellished with printable Holiday Tags (from

The centerpiece is a paper “North Pole” mail box (printables coming soon to The mail box was displayed onto a white cake stand covered with fake snow (love the stuff!), in-keeping with the theme. It also served to hold all the greetings cards, coloring pages and paper goods for the kids to use and get crafty with. And at the end of the party the kids get to post their letters to Santa inside the mailbox!

Paper Maché letters spelling out the word “NOEL” (same ones as seen here) were painted white and used to complement the centerpiece  These make for a great table décor statement, and you can use as home display for years to come!

Crafty Snowman Christmas Table: Party Favor and Games

Apart from all the crafty activities and Santa's letters, each guest also got to take home an edible snow-globe, which also doubled as place-cards! :)

To make these snow globes, simply stack 2 marshmallows onto a round sugar cookie using royal icing to secure the pieces in place. Then decorate the snowman with edible ink pen and candy hat and nose (the tip of a candy corn). Place the snowman inside an acrylic bauble (from most craft stores) and fill the bauble with desiccated coconut. Close the bauble and decorate with ribbon and a name tag so guests can know where they’re sitting. 

These are really cute, easy and fun to make, taste delicious and there’s no risk of breaking - My perfect kind of party favor!
