I just love love quick and easy crafts – and I’ve got a cute one for you today! Last Minute Christmas Decor – – a Rolled Fabric Snowman!
Everyone has their thing around Christmas – my grandma collects Santas – my mom is an angel collector – and me, I’m weak for all things snowmen, so I love this even more than normal.
What you’ll need:
–white fabric, ripped into 1 inch wide strips (I ripped up an old sheet)
–3 coordinating buttons
–small scrap of flannel
–scrap of felt
First, tie a knot in the end of a strip of fabric:
Then twist and roll the fabric, while wrapping it around flatly, as shown below:
Now, since nothing is holding it together except for twists and wraps, we need to attach a back to stabilize it. Generously apply hot glue to the back of the roll:
Then firmly press it onto your sheet of felt. Repeat the above steps to make 2 more rolls, each slightly smaller than the roll before it. Press them onto the felt in a snowman stack like shown:
You’ll notice that they aren’t as stiff as you’d like when you pick up the felt – to solve this, bend the rolls away from each other and add some hot glue in the crack to adhere the rolls directly to one another:
Now cut away the excess felt:
Attache a loop to the back if you would like to use your snowman as an ornament. Glue buttons and scarf into place. That’s it! Here’s what it will look like from the back:
When I started the project, I was thinking ornament. But then I thought it’d be cute just to frame him and use him as some holiday decor. I think it’d be super cute to make a whole snowman family – I still might do that!
