Here's a great idea for a Christmas craft that will be enjoyable for the whole family. Just gather a few materials and spend an evening making snowmen indoors!
This plump little snowman makes a great centerpiece, is easy to put together and makes a cuddly pal for the kids. With some very simple items you can put this craft together inexpensively and quickly.
You will need:
White winter hat, infant size
Child size white sock
Child size red mitten or glove
Black velvet bow tie
Small orange pom pom
4 buttons (2 red, 2 green)
Body and head -- Open hat and add two to three handfuls of rice, then fill with Fiberfil stuffing. The rice will help the snowman to "stand up." Fill a child-sized sock with Fiberfil to create a head. Tuck the open end of the sock into the open end of hat. Gather the open end of the hat, and tie with a piece of gold cord or yarn. Trim ends so that strands cannot be seen. Secure the head into the neck with hot glue. Hat -- Trim hand section off of mitten or glove. Place cuff over head and roll up for hat brim. Secure in place with hot glue. From the cut end of the glove/mitten, add some Fiberfil to give the hat some body, tie off top with gold cord.
Face and finishing touches -- Draw on eyes and mouth with marker by carefully dotting onto sock face. Hot glue an orange pom pom on for a nose. Hot glue black bow tie under chin area. Note: We found our bow tie on a velvet hat at a thrift store. Glue buttons in place, alternating green then red.
