Better Budgeting: Homemade Christmas Ornaments: Felt Snowman

Homemade Christmas Ornaments: Felt Snowman

Submitted by Mary Redgraves of Maryland


"Chilly the Warm-Hearted Snowman"

I started making Christmas ornaments for gifts about 27 years ago. Since then I make about 35 of each ornament per year for friends and family.

Instructions:

Start by cutting out 2 felt snowman shapes.
Crisscross green thread to make 2 buttons.
Cut out a small piece of orange felt for a nose, then sewed it on with orange thread.
Sew black French knots for eyes and a mouth with black thread.
Blanket-stitch around the outside with cream colored thread.
Before closing the opening I stuffed cotton balls inside then finished stitching the 2 pieces closed.
Cut a piece of fabric and tie around neck for a scarf.
Run a string of thread through the top for a hanger.
