  • one 12" x 3/4" piece plaid fabric
  • one piece 6 ½" x 4" polyester batting
  • 2 pieces 2" x 2 ½" black felt
  • Fabric Paint, red & green
  • Craft glue
  • 7" piece crochet or elastic thread
  • seed beads, 7 black, 1 orange & 4 green or color of your choice

Craft Instructions

  1. Cut out two snowmen from warm & natural batting and one snowman from polyester batting. The easiest way to do this is to sandwich the polyester batting between the 2 layers of warm & natural batting, trace the snowman once, pin the snowman together through all 3 layers then cut out.
  2. Sew all the way around the outside edge (close to the edge) of the snowman.
  3. Sew 4 seed beads down the front as pictured for buttons.
  4. On the top ball section, sew on one orange bead as the nose and then sew on the black beads for the eyes and mouth.
  5. Trace and cut out 2 hat pieces from black felt.
  6. At the top of the snowman, glue one hat section to the front and one to the back of the snowman being sure both hat pieces line up with each other.
  7. Tie the 3/4" x 12" piece of plaid fabric around the snowman's neck as a scarf.
  8. With green fabric paint, draw three holly leaves on the hat and put 3 red cots in the center of the leaf cluster. Attached you'll find a step by step diagram for drawing the holly. If you have trouble with this or if it's not quite your style, you can eliminate the holly and glue a thin strip of fabric or piece of thin ribbon around the hat to form a hatband instead.
  9. Once the hat is dry, thread a piece of crochet thread or clear elastic thread through a needle and pull through the back of hat. Remove needle and tie ends in a knot. This is your hanger.
