To get started, you will need the sleeve of an old sweater, fiberfill, a glue gun and glue, a wooden spool painted black, two small black buttons, two small holly leaves cut from green felt, a small red button, an orange triangle cut from felt, ribbon, and scissors. Not pictured: black felt circle and a scrap of fabric. Disregard the needle and thread...I made this cutie no sew!
Turn the sleeve inside out and tie a knot around the wrist end of the sweater.
Turn the sleeve right side out and begin to fill with the fiberfill. This is the snowman's head. Once it is filled to your desired size, tie a knot directly under the filling.
Fill the body with the fiberfill.
After the body is stuffed, turn your snowman on his head and fold and glue the opening closed.
I folded it like a present.
This is what you should have so far.
I wanted my snowman to appear a little more "schmooshed," so I glued the head down to the body.
See? Definitely more "schmooshed" and cuter! :) Glue on the black, button eyes and orange, felt nose.
To create the top hat, glue the wooden spool to the top of the black felt circle.
Add a holly embellishment to the top hat by gluing on the green leaves and the red button.
Glue the top hat on his head.
For the finishing touch, tie a scrap piece of fabric around his neck. I cut little slits on each end of the scarf to look like tassels.
