How to Make a Friendly Snowman

This snowman won't melt! Made with Fur yarn, this fun fellow is ready to add cheer to any room, even if the weather outside is frightful!
  • 1 Pin yarn to the snowman

    Without cutting the yarn from the ball, pin an end of the A yarn to the bottom edge of the snowman.

  • 2 Apply glue

    Apply craft glue around the edge and press the yarn into the glue, holding with pins as needed.

  • 3 Wrap the snowman

    Wrap the yarn around the snowman. Apply a band of craft adhesive to the top of the snowman's head and then press the yarn into the glue, cut the yarn from the ball and pin. Let dry completely.

  • 4 Trim the yarn

    Trim the yarn between the snowman's sections (neck and waist) to exaggerate the snowman's shape.

  • 5 Create the headband

    Cut one piece of the B yarn 4" long. Pin the strand to the snowman head to create the headband.

  • 6 Create the earmuffs

    With the B yarn, make two 2 1/2" pompons. Pin the pompoms to each end of the headband to create the earmuffs.

  • 7 Create the scarf

    Cut three 28" strands of the C yarn. Tie the strands together with a 3" fringe at one end. Braid the strands until 3" remain. Tie a knot at the end of the braid to form a scarf.

  • 8 Tie the scarf

    Tie the scarf around the neck of the snowman. Trim the ends of the scarf evenly.

  • 9 Attach the snowman's eyes

    Pin or glue the buttons to the snowman for his eyes.
