Hello there =) If you’ve been following along the past few weeks and staying crafty with me, you have a predicament on your hands like I do above: TONS of pretty little poms poms and yarn hats.
Well, if you haven’t used all your pom poms for garland and all the yarn hats haven’t been hung on the tree yet, I have a fun craft for you!
Here is what you will need:
- white poms poms in 3 sizes
- yarn hats
- yarn that matches your hats
- small pom poms (the store bought fuzzy ones for eyes)
- yarn or felt for scarves
Ready? Set? Go!
Thread your needle (doubled yarn) and string the largest pom pom.
String the mid-sized pom pom on your yarn.
String the smallest pom pom onto your yarn.
String the hat up through the center.
Stand you little guy up and admire him for a second. Scrunch the pieces together to make him a little more sturdy.
Snip your needle off the top. leaving tails to knot. I’m sure there is a better way to do this part (the stringing) but I just jumped right in…
Tie the snipped stringing ends. A few knots should do. Pulling too hard on your snowman could pull him apart, be gentle
Knot the tails on the bottom too.
Snip, snip, snip.
Glue on some pom pom eyes, add a little scarf (strip of felt or braided yarn) and he’s all set to hang with the rest of the holiday decor!
These guys are now ready to hangout in a display, be added to a package or hung on the tree. Remember, a good tug could pull these guys apart. I’ll work on a good securing method and keep you updated. Enjoy!
