Wood Stake Snowman

Ever come across something while shopping and have so many ideas come to you instantly?

That’s what happened while shopping at Home Depot and found 24″ grading stakes that were inexpensive for a huge pack!

The first idea that came to my head was lining our walkway with little snowmen made with these stakes. I had so much fun making this and they turned out so cute!

Some of the following links are Affiliate links. Click here to see my full disclosure.



  1. Paint the stakes white. I did both sides
  2. Using the permanent markers, draw a cute face for your snowmen. You can find a lot of ideas searching pinterest.
  3. Using a hot glue gun wrap felt around the head to make a hat
  4. Cut a long strip to use as a scarf.

Now you can either place them outside in pots on your porch, line the walkway or driveway for even throw them in a bucket for inside decorations!

These are so easy and versatile. I love the price too!

I like this project a lot. However in checking the comments on the Amazon website about the quality of their stakes, I will probably go to Lowe's or a local lumber yard and buy some and have my husband cut them down for me. All of the 1x2 stakes that we use for gardening purposes are very rough and splintered and often break or bow when handling them. Did you sand yours a lot?

I actually didn't sand them at all. They were a little rough on the backside but nothing bad. If I was going to use these exclusively inside then I would pay a little more for better quality.
