Felt Snowman Decoration

​A great little decoration for Christmas.

​Easy enough for the kids to do.

 

Approx. finished size 9cm x 9cm (3 1/2" x 3 1/2")

What will you need?

  • ​White, red, green and orange Felt or colours of your choice
  • ​Thread or ribbon for a hanging loop
  • ​Toy Filling
  • Thread, needle, scissors

  • Cut two circles form the white felt

 

​We used 7cm (2 3/4") circles and we got six complete heads out of one standard felt square.

But you can do them any size.

 

  • ​Cut a small carrot shape from the orange felt, about 1.5cm x 2.5cm (1/2" x 3/4")

 

  • Stitch the carrot onto the centre of one circle
  • ​Stitch a mouth and eyes onto the same circle (you could also use tiny buttons for the eyes)

  • ​Put the two white circles together and stitch around the edge​ using a blanket stitch or a running stitch
  • ​Stop before you get to the end and stuff with toy filling
  • ​Then finish stitching

  • ​Cut out 2 pieces of green felt 5cm x 3.5cm (2" x 1 1/2") for the hat
  • ​Stitch along three sides leaving one long side open
  • ​Cut a thin piece of red felt about 0.5cm x 11.5cm (1/4" x 4 1/2") and stitch it around the hat, near the bottom
  • ​Then stitch the hat onto the head along the front side first then part of the way along the back
  • ​Add some toy filling and finish the stitching

  • Add a thread hanger to back of the hat and you're finished

 

This is a simpler version, the head is made with three circles

of felt layered together and stitched round

instead of using stuffing.
