Ten Alternative Ways to Make a Snowman This Winter

Are you thinking of making yourself a snowman this winter? Are you looking for some inspirational snowman ideas and alternative designs that you can copy? If you are you might want to check these ten I have found online because they are some of the craziest alternative snowmen you will ever see. Sure, some of them require an art degree to make, but most of them just about anyone can make…

Upside Down Snowman

“I hope I don’t get head freeze!”

Don’t you just hate a show-off!? No, not the snowman showing off, doing a handstand, but the person who made it! A fairly simple design in itself, but pure genius in execution. Place the Wellington boots on top just makes the upside-down snowman even better.

Log Face Snowman

The lazy man’s guide to building a snowman

Maybe there just wasn’t enough snow to make a whole Snowman, or maybe the person was just too lazy! But with one finger and a bite of carrot you too could make a tree trunk snowman.

Weightlifting Snowman

A key to a good workout is snow joke!

Do you even lift bro? Well, it is clear that this snowman does as this is a whole gym and work session made from nothing but snow and twigs! This snowman weightlifter is concentrating on the wrong thing, he needs to sort those skinny legs out.

Troll Head Snowman

I was so stupid I had nobody to dance with!

This goofy looking face would have made for one amazing showman, but for whatever reason, he is destined to remain nothing more than a snow-head. I love the wild bit of twigs used for the hair.

The Snow Lady of Bute Park

The lesser spotted snow, lady.

Some people just go that extra mile when it comes to making snowmen. With leaf eyes, fern tree hair and something plant-like for his nose it is definitely one of the best-made snowmen you will see. Best of all is that this one was made in a park in Cardiff.

Snowman Massacre

The Texas Snowman Massacre

Is this for Halloween, or just a very sick person’s mind at work? Whatever the reason a herd of snowman Zombies is enough to make anyone stop and stare. I have to say that a snowman’s blood I would have thought would have been water, not red blood.

Muscle Man Snowman

Does that Snowman have a six-pack?!?

It seems that our snowman from number 8 has finally got round to building up his leg strength. I really do think this is the only snowman with a six-pack abs set! But those snowman guns need a mention as well. This guy definitely lifts.

Homer Simpson Snowman


Some people just have to go that one better than everyone else. This Homer Simpson snowman is now only artistically correct, but on a dark night, you might well imagine someone mistaking him for a real person as well!

Army of Snowmen

Why make one when you can make an entire army!

Why make one snowman when you can make an entire army of them! This scary scene took several weeks to make and is not something you want to wake up and see in your back garden. But looking into the background it does seem that they certainly had the snow for it.

Snow Pig

The Perfect Snow Pig.

Not so much snowman, more snow sculpture. This cute little snow pig was seen on the streets of a Tokyo shopping district, where there was a snow sculpture competition running. Needless to say, this was the winner.
