I can’t take credit for this rusty bedspring craft, but when I saw this snowman idea on Rusted Roots Blog on Instagram, I knew I wanted to give it a try. I had all the supplies here, and could whip one up easily. Unlike Christmas decor, snowmen can be left out all winter. So when the Christmas decorations are packed back up, your little snowman can still bring you some winter cheer.

You can find these rusty bedsprings at flea markets and antique shops. You shouldn’t have to pay over $3.00 for them, and I think I paid $2.00 for mine.
You will need:
- Rusty Spring
- Snowman head ornament (mine lights up!)
- E6000 Glue, or any glue that will adhere to metal
- Buttons (I used bright colored ones that would stand out against the rusty spring)
- Piece of greenery (optional)
- Put a line of E6000 Glue, around the bottom of the snowman head where it will lie on the spring top
- Glue the piece of greenery around the top of the spring near the head
- Glue a few buttons on the spring in a coat pattern.
- Glue a piece of greenery around the snowman’s neck like a scarf.
That’s it! You are finished! Wouldn’t these be fun to give to friends? They are so easy you can make several in a short period of time.
Have fun crafting!
