What do you use for your snowman nose? I use to order carrot noses online to use on my snowman crafts then I decided to give making my own a try. I have to tell you they are so simple to make you will never but another carrot to use as a nose for your snowman again. In this blog I use orange Sculpey clay to make my carrot noses but you can certainly also make then out of air dry clay and paint them orange.
Materials You Will Need
- Orange Sculpey Clay
- Parchment Sheet Lined Cookie Sheet
Making the Carrot Nose
Take a piece of the Orange Sculpey clay and work with you fingers to get it soft. Form the piece of clay into a carrot shape. I roll the clay a little between my hands then flatten down one end. I then form into a carrot shape. The size of the piece of clay will depend on how big you want to make the carrot nose that is what is so wonderful about making your own carrot nose you can make it any size you would like. You can also flatten one whole side of the carrot if you would like to attach the nose sideways instead of it coming straight out from the face. Next take a toothpick and make lines on the clay carrot to give it a more realistic look. Place your clay carrot noses on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake according to the directions on the package.
I hope you find making your own carrot noses fun and easy. If you are making them to attach to Styrofoam or something you would be able to insert a toothpick into you can stick a toothpick into the bottom of the clay nose before you bake them so you will be able to attach the nose just by inserting the toothpick into the snowman head.

Love these carrots. They look so realistic. Ty Sherry.
That is cute I’ve not worked with the clay like this since I was in school. A very long time ago… I think I can do it though. Thanks for showing us all what to do.
I am sure you can do it! And just think you can make anything you want with clay and a mold
Sherry, You have no idea how much I appreciate being able to sit down at my computer, print out a pattern for something you have made, and nine times out of ten, I have everything I need right here at the house. Unless it takes wood, which I do need which I have to buy at the time. Seems like you use things I have already so many times and my stash of fabric is slowly going down. Your designs are easy to follow and instructions so easy to read and understand. I will share with you that I have short term memory trouble and have a really hard time reading and trying to retain what I read long enough to do it. My hubby is a great help, reading to me so I can follow his instructions! He has to repeat a lot, but he is wonderful. We have been married 55 blessed years and he is an avid crocheter, wood quilt block painter and handyman at home. I just want you to know how much I love your craft site and everything you share with us. Keep up the wonderful job you do and I will be watching every show, usually catching the replay, so you don’t hear from me often. I’m too busy trying to absorb and retain all you say. I just can’t thank you enough. Heartfelt thank yous.
Linda Jackson……aka…Grami to everyone.
