Yarn Snowman

I love snowmen! When I first started blogging I saved a bunch of pins on Pinterest that inspired me for the holidays. The idea for this Yarn Snowman is from a pin with a small door hanging Snowman I found on Pinterest. Since bigger is better to me mine is 3 foot tall with fuzzy yarn and burlap!! I love the rustic look of his hat and his cute tie. He’s really easy to make, let me show you how~

 

Yarn Snowman Wall Art

Supplies:

Instructions:

I used a large styro foam board because it is less expensive, but you can buy the styro foam round boards to skip this cutting step.

Cut circles out of foam

Place three graduating in size plates on the foam as guides to draw circles for the snowman’s body.

Cut foam board with a sharp knife

 Cut them out with a sharp knife. They do not need to be super perfect.

Add cottom for padding for snowman

Make a spiral in hot glue in the center of the foam circle and place various cotton balls. The cotton layer makes snowman appear fuller, you could also use batting if you have it, I had cotton balls on hand so I just used them. Again less expensive.

Wrap foam with yarn for snowman

Hot glue the end of the yarn to the back of the center of foam and start wrapping the yarn outwards toward the edges. It can be tricky when you get close the sides of the circles, just hot glue the yarn in place as you go. Repeat for the other side of the circle. I wrapped the yarn over each foam circle twice to make sure I covered all the cotton and foam. Next layer the circles and hot glue them together.

To make the Arms & Hat:

Cut two strips of the wired sisal vine. The arms & hands are bent shaped and twisted for strength. Push them into the foam and hot glue into place.

For the hat:

Unroll the whole roll of twine and double it and twist it for strength. Then took two hardback books in different sizes, one for the rim of the hat one for the top of the hat. This part can be tricky. Wrap the twine around three times for the larger book and press flat. Slip it off and do the same for the smaller book, wrap around eight or nine times.

Take smaller pieces of twine wire and wired the hat together in the back to make it stable. It tends to flop. Slip it over the head and hot glue the bottom base into place. When you hang the snowman the hat stands tall. If not slip it further over the snowman’s head.

Cut a small piece of a faux carrot diagonally and hot glue to the center of the snowman’s face. Place the buttons on the body and hot glue into place. Loop a small piece of twine and hot glue it to the back of the head to make a hanger. Tie burlap ribbon around the neck and trim the ends diagonally and you are done!XOXOKIMG
