You will need just a few supplies to make these adorable craft stick snowman magnets, which you might already have in your craft room.
You could even switch things up a bit on this cute snowman craft. Instead of magnets, you could add a string for an ornament. You could use them as bookmarks too! Try switching it up with different color buttons too, or even an assortment of colors on one snowman. If you really want to get creative, the possibilities are endless.
