So here is how to make the snowman garland craft…
Snowman Garland Craft Materials:
• 12″ Ribbon or Yarn
• White Ceramic Christmas Bulbs (how many will depend on the spacing you envision for your garland)
• Black Buttons
• Orange Felt
• Fleece Fabric (color of your choice, how much will depend on how many snowman ornaments you are making)
• Glue Gun
• Glue Sticks
• Twine (to hang)
Snowman Garland Craft Directions:
• Cut a piece of ribbon or yarn 12″ in length.
• Fold the ribbon in half and make a slip knot in the hanger portion of the bulb.
• Pull tight.
*If you cannot find matching or coordinating ribbon for the hanging portion, use a piece of the fabric, about 3/8″ wide x 12″ long.
• Cut a piece of fabric into a 6.5″ wide x 9″ long rectangle.
• Fold the fabric about 3/8″ over on the long edge and tack with hot glue.
• Roll up once more and tack with hot glue.
• Wrap the fabric-hat around the bulb, making sure the folded end covers the bulb.
• Affix the ends to the bulb with hot glue.
• Using another piece of thread or yarn, tie a string around the fabric to create a hat. Double knot it.
• Trim the top fabric by cutting it vertically being careful not to cut the hanging ribbon/yarn.
• When working on the face, lay the bulb on a glass or shot glass to hold it in place while you attach the facial features.
• Cut out a small triangle nose out of the orange felt.
• Attach two black button eyes to the ornament using hot glue.
• Attach a button mouth with hot glue (see photo).
• Attach the orange triangle nose to the bulb using hot glue.
• Glue the two pieces of ribbon together on the ends.
• Fold them over and glue the end to the ribbon about 2″ from the fold, creating a loop.
• If hanging on a tree, use an ornament hook or simply loop the ribbon on a branch so the ornament does not fall off.
• If hanging as garland, slip the loops of the ribbon on the snowman ornaments through a piece of twine and hang where desired!
