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 for a small ornamental door hanging snowman I found on Pinterest.

To me, bigger is better, so I decided to make my version of that snowman on a much larger scale. He is around 3 feet tall, wrapped in fluffy white chunky yarn and has a sweet carrot nose for added charm.

I usually hang him up around the holidays and keep him around through February. With his rustic hat and burlap tie, this makes him a wonderful winter decoration for your front door or around your home. Let me show how I made him!

Yarn Snowman Wall Art



Note: I used one large 1-inch thick foam board because it was less expensive, but you can buy the round foam pieces to skip the cutting steps.

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

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

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.

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 over one another and hot glue them together to make the body.

Make the Arms:

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.

Make the Hat:

Unroll the whole roll of twine and double it and twist it for strength. Then take 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 the burlap ribbon around the neck and trim the ends diagonally and you are done!
