Hello Scrap Shoppers! I’m so happy to be back for another week of Homemade Christmas! I’m Erin from Crafts & Sutch.
I’m a crafty girl at heart and love Christmastime! I especially love decorating my home for the holidays! Today we are making a super duper cutie pie snowman out of an upcycled sweater! Are you ready?
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.
Isn’t he adorable? I just love him sitting in the little winter wonderland on top of my fridge! He might need a girlfriend. 🙂 It would be super easy to change this little guy up by adding different embellishments…perhaps twig arms, a crocheted scarf, or a tiny little pipe?
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy holiday! I hope you’ll stop by Crafts & Sutch to say hi! Michele, thanks so much for letting me come visit again! I had too much fun!
