This could easily be done with the glass blocks found at craft stores such as A.C. Moore. The blocks are heavy so they will work as a door stop. With the super adhesives on the market you can easily attach one block to another. There are endless ideas for decorating a snowman, either this design or using your imagination you could make a snow scene in the bottom block for a unique decoration to use year after year. Wouldn't these make a wonderful gift? And with store coupons you can get a good deal on the blocks.

Such a nice idea. I would love keeping this up throughout the entire winter. It doubles as a cute piece of home decor.

Like the previous comments, I too was wondering about the block... As an alternative, I could see using a plastic gallon milk carton jug filled with sand and painted white for the body and a smaller similar container for the head...using sand would help,keep,it stable as a door stop and keep,it fro blowing over. Alternatively you could just keep the container slightly translucent with sand in the bottom for ballast, and put a battery votive inside for a flickering snowman!

What a neat doorstop! Have you made any others like maybe a Santa one? I think that would be a great take on this idea to make it uniquely my own. I could tell the kids that Santa is watching to see if they were bad or good. Nice design!

Hi, where can I find that shape of "block" It looks more like two blocks. I live in France and I am having a hard time finding something similiar, except if I have my husband do it from a larger piece of wood. It is a shame because this looks like a cute Christmas idea.

Hi there! Unfortunately I'm not sure where to find a wood block shaped exactly like that. It might be easier to carve that shape from a rectangular block, or use an easier material to carve like Styrofoam or even cardboard! Online stores might be your best bet for blocks shaped like this. I hope that's helpful! -Editors of FaveCrafts

Does anyone know where you can purchase the pavers?

Hi there, you can find the pavers/stepping stones at Home Depot. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Very poor excuse for 'instructions' - it was only by reading the comments that I realised the 'block' referred to was/is a single block paver (I MIGHT have seen something that fit the bill some time ago). My local B&Q do some square ones that would look good, but they don't have the 'tang'(?) that would work for the head - AND you don't seem to be able to buy them individually... I suppose a concrete form would be relatively easy to make (and to scale for 'families' of snowmen/women/children, etc.) but I don't have the space to work on such a scale - or the outlet to make it worthwhile.

Hi Trunkee--Thanks for your comment. You can also try using a cardboard form or Styrofoam to create your snowman. It might be hard to use it as a door stopper but you can at least put it on your mantel to decorate it! You can also try searching online for wood pieces, as well as your local hardware store. Hope that helps!--FaveCrafts Editors

Poor instructions. What block, aren't there 2 blocks there? Create a cap? on top of the block - really would like more detail here. It is such a cute project, but I cannot make out what is being used for the base "block" material.

the directions are pretty hazy! NOWHERE does it say anything about a paver...just one block...and by that I am assuming they mean a wooden block...and no mention of attaching the block to the paver. Follow these directions and you may have something but it will not be this cute snowman. How could it be when the directions don't even mention the primary ingredient, i.e. the paver????? Don't these folks have proof readers or anyone who checks the directions? Apparently not. How disappointing.

I've made these paver critters for years. About 3 years ago they quit making this particular shape of paver - I checked with all those locales and the company does not make them any more. If there happens to be a McCoy's in your area, they may have some. My clever son-in-law built a form to make 3 pavers at a time. This may be your only choice.

I think these are so cute. I have made several in the past. I can't find the blocks anywhere, I have checked Lowe's and Walmart and no one sells them. This is a fun craft for adults and children.

The directions did not seem complete. It called for fleece but no direction for use. I 'assume' that a normal brick is used and the fleece bulks up the lower torso although no direction given. I would take and cut an empty milk or juice carton and stand a regular brick in it to form the shoulders. Cover and decorate.

Been looking since last year but alas the blocks arnt available here in the UK... :(

You should be able to get the blocks at Home Depot or Lowes. The whole snowman is block.

It is a paver block.

to no avail..i have also been looking for these bricks..and neither store has them...

LOVE THE SNOW MAN. But can,t find the blocks. Where do you find them?

cute idea......Where did you get the block? I have been looking for them for a long while.......thank you

What kind of bloack is used and what is the top (head) made of or attached with?

Risa, just use cardboard. or any kind of stiff paper... plastic canvas will work and make any size square, rectangle and cover with fabric..... I've use milk cartons and weighted the door stop with sand.,. where there're a will, there's a way! A

I love snowman and this little guy is so cute.

I have been making these for years

i need a cute snow man or angel craft that doesn't have weird materials needed like a brick! no offense andim glad i found this site but a block? i need less abnormal crafts that's not so heavy either!
