Today, I’m sharing a cute little felt snowman DIY decor craft. This craft is so incredibly versatile – it could be a package ornament, a series of snowmen could be hung together or they can just be placed around your home to decorate for the rest of the Winter. Making felt snowmen is easy and quite inexpensive too!

  • blue and black embroidery thread
  • scissors

Step 1:Trace the snowman outline onto the white felt. I folded the felt in half and then traced the image on, so I only had to cut once.

Step 2: Cut the snowman shapes out.

Step 3: Cut out two red stars. Just eyeball it because it looks more whimsical that way! Place a white button on each star and sew in place with blue embroidery thread.

Step 4: Cut out an orange triangle for the carrot nose and a strip of green felt for the scarf.

Step 5: Sew the black buttons on one snowman shape with blue thread. Then stitch the mouth with black thread.

Step 6: Place the two snowman shapes together, making sure the pen-outline is facing in so it will be hidden. Begin stitching {in blue} near the bottom of the snowman and go all the way around leaving an opening to stuff the batting in.

Step 7: Stuff batting in, but don’t fill too full. Just give the snowman a bit of puff. Then finish stitching him closed.

Step 8: Use tacky glue {or hot glue} to attach the nose and scarf.

Step 9: Also glue down the adorable stars! And you’re done!

Didn’t he turn out so cute?! I think felt snowmen in any size would be really adorable. You could switch up the colors of the scarf and stars as well as the embroidery thread. I plan on making a few more to decorate my home for the Winter!
