Finished Size: 5 1/2 inches tall

Create your snowman ornament body:

  1. Cut out all pieces for snowman and accessories using the patterns located through the link in the materials list.
  2. With wrong sides together, Pin both snowman pieces together.
  3. Stitch together at about inch from the edge with white thread, using a sewing machine or hand stitch using a backstitch. (Be sure to leave the openings for the arms and for stuffing the bottom as shown on the pattern.)
  4. Trim inch off of the seam allowance edge after you are done stitching.
  5. Make small cuts in the seam allowance, up to the stitching, about every inch around the head and neck of the snowman. (This helps the fabric to press out smoothly.)
  6. Turn the snowman right side out through the bottom hole.
  7. Press all edges with your iron.
  8. Gently stuff the snowman with poly fill until he is just about inch thick.
  9. Stitch up the bottom opening with white thread.
  10. Insert a Y stick into each of the arm openings about 1 inches deep.
  11. Using 3 strands of brown embroidery floss, start a running stitch around the snowman about 1/8 inch from the finished edge.
  12. When you get to one of the arm sticks, stitch tightly around the stick 3 times before continuing around the snowman.
  13. Using black embroidery floss, 2 strands, sew on the eyes and mouth. (approximate placement is shown on the pattern)
  14. For the nose, roll up the nose piece tightly. (The straight edge will be the point and should be kept as tight and pointy as possible.)
  15. Using orange thread, one strand, stitch the nose together and then onto the face.

Finishing Snowman Ornaments:
Boy

  1. Tie the scarf piece around his neck.
  2. Glue on Buttons.

Girl

  1. Stick the piece of craft wire through her forehead. (The areas where the wire goes in and out of her head will be covered by the hat).
  2. Wind each end of the wire around a pencil to make curly ringlets.
  3. For the hat, fold the hat piece in half, wrong sides together.
  4. Stitch the hat together along seam lines. (About inch from the edge)
  5. Turn right side out, turn up the bottom edge and sew into place on the girls head.
  6. Stitch patches into place on her body.
  7. Glue rusty star shapes as buttons onto her body.
  8. Add a little blush to her cheeks if you want.

Hangers

For a hanger, use a 6 inch piece of twine string, tie the ends together and stitch the loop to the back of the snowman's head. Or you can use embroidery floss and a needle to just stitch a piece through the back of the head and tie the ends together to form a loop hanger.

Done!
These snowman ornaments look cute and homemade on your Christmas tree!
