One of my favorite things to decorate with at Christmastime are snowmen. Anytime, I am at the thrift store, if I see a snowman, even in the middle of the heat of summer, I grab it! Well, another thing that I grab is random embroidery hoops. All sizes. Well, I decided to try to make my own snowmen, due to being on a budget, and the embroidery hoops came to mind. Not much is needed for this project, and it can come together in just a couple of hours! Do YOU want to build a snowman?! 😉
What You Will Need For This Project
- Three embroidery hoops in varying sizes
- Pack of bells from Dollar Tree
- Pack of mini glass ball ornaments from Dollar General
- Greenery clippings from garland
- 1.5″ wired ribbon of choice
- Snowman Hat ornament from the Dollar Tree
- Pipe cleaner
- White paint
- E6000 glue
- Black felt
- Wooden base
- Hot glue gun and glue
The first thing I did was glue my three embroidery hoops together using E6000 glue. I used clothespins to hold them together while the glue dried.
Once the glue was dried, I painted my snowman white.
While the paint was drying, I made my bow. Using my EZ bow maker, I made a six looped bow. Once the paint was dry, I used my pipe cleaner and secured the bow to the neck area of my snowman.
Next, I added a few pieces of garland greenery to the bow. Afterwards, I attached three bells tied with twine to the same area to hang down below the neck area.
Then I glued the snowman hat ornament to the top hoop. I added a circle of felt to the bottom of the hat, sandwiching the hoop, to help secure the hat. Last, I glued the bottom hoop to a piece of round wood. I added a couple pieces of garland to help secure the snowman to the wood. I then topped that with two of the glass ball ornaments and then my snowman was complete!
