Snowman Poop Gag Gift Stocking Stuffer Project
Christmas : Snowman Poop Gag Gift Stocking Stuffer Project & Printable Tag

'Naughty Not Nice' Christmas Humor

Snowman Poop Gag Gift Stocking Stuffer Project with Printable Tag

Includes fun verse novelty sign!

By Chris Dunmire

Snowman Poop Sign DesignVariations on a theme for this popular crafty Christmas joke have been floating around for at least a decade: the infamous funny "Snowman Poop" razzle stocking stuffer.

The gist of the novelty gift is a rhyming poem or clever verse noting the recipient has been 'naughty not nice' this year, so all they get for Christmas instead of a coal chunk ('cause that costs too much!) is "Snowman Poop." It seems the best rhyming word to set off the punch line is "scoop." Got something more clever? Make your own sign with a customized rhyme.

Here's the variation used for my joke sign, which you can print and use for personal use with your gift to make it look authentic and retail-worthy:

"You’ve been naughty
so here’s the scoop,
all you get for Christmas
is this Snowman Poop!"

This fun gift is not as gross as it seems. At first you may cringe, but you'll quickly soften when you realize the offending material consists of mere cute, rounded-edged sweet mini-marshmallows accompanied (or not) by other food or sparkly glitter to mimic fine snow, and it's all cleanly contained in a zip-seal sandwich bag.

An important cautionary notice 'not to eat' the bag's craft contents is displayed on the back of my tag under the "To:" line to address the gift. Ready to make yours?

Project Materials & Tools:

  • 1 Zip-seal or zip-lock sandwich bag
  • A dozen or more mini-marshmallows
  • A pinch of shredded coconut
  • 1 Printed Snowman Poop novelty sign
  • Stapler
  • Hole punch

    or other sparkly material

Snowman Poop Stocking Stuffer Instructions:

1. Place and seal ingredients into zip-lock bag

Place mini-marshmallows and coconut into the bag and seal. Leave some air in the bag for contents to move. If you want to add optional sparkly materials to bag, this is the time to do it.

Note: Don't use coconut if your intended recipient is allergic.

2. Trim novelty sign and fold it over top of bag.

After you've printed my free "Snowman Poop" Novelty sign (download here in high-resolution printable PDF format), cut it out and fold it in half lengthwise.

3. Staple novelty sign to bag.

Center sign over sealed bag top and secure with two staples (above the zipped part as not to puncture the bag and leak its contents).

4. Punch hole in sign.

If you want your Snowman Poop to look like a real retail item snagged from a store, punch a hole in the top center of the sign.

5. Address and "gift" to your special recipient!
