Sweater Scrap and Burlap Snowman

Hi Friends!  Hope your week is going great.  Today I’ve got a fun Christmas craft to share with you.  Are you getting ready for Christmas yet?  Fall is pretty much packed up at our home and about half of the Christmas décor is out.  These fun snowman are a great way to keep off the season and they’re made with scraps… even better!

Here’s what I used:

Styrofoam balls (used 3 different sizes)

Gorilla Super Glue

Old sweater sleeve

scissors

burlap scraps

black pipe cleaner

elastic thread

I used super glue to glue the Styrofoam balls together.  Once the glue had dried,  I slid the Styrofoam balls into the sweater sleeve and cut the sweater with just a little over hang on each end.

I used  burlap scraps and tied it around the snowman’s neck for it’s cute scarf.

On my tall snowman I used elastic thread to cinch the area between the bottom 2 balls.

I used glue to close off the sweater seams at the top and bottom of the snowman.  (This takes some gluing, trimming, tucking and repeating till it looks smooth)

I rolled the black pipe cleaner to make the buttons and cut them with scissors to the size I wanted.  Then I glued them onto the sweater.

And ended up with simple, rustic snowman buddies…

    I love these snowmen! They are adorable and will be a cute decoration long after the holidays.

    I teach a craft enrichment group at school and this would be a perfect project for January. I even have bunches of styrofoam balls saved from atom projects that the kids were going to throw away. Thanks so much for this inspiration!
