Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! We have been busy making snowmen this week. Well, snowman crafts anyway! We were challenged by our friends at Floracraft® to re-imagine a project from their Christmas ebook. Using their fluffy snowman (pictured at the very end of this post) as inspiration, we created this felted wool foam snowman out of two FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam balls. Isn’t he cute?
In addition to the two sizes of foam balls, you will also need white wool roving felt; orange, black and red felt for his accessories; white embroidery floss; black adhesive gems; a roving needle; a length of wire to connect the two balls; a length of paper-wrapped floral stem wire; scissors; and a low-temperature glue gun. Once you have gathered all your materials, download the pattern at the end of this post. Then you can follow my photo tutorial below.
This felted wool foam snowman is a great beginner project for those wanting to dabble with roving felt, as there is little chance of getting it wrong! Likewise, the snowman’s felt top hat is made using a glue gun and the scarf only requires a simple running stitch. So this is the perfect project for any crafting newbies!
