Crafts in my Kitchen: Yarn-Wrapped Snowman

Hi Crafters!

There's a decided lack of snow (and rain) here in California, so I created a little snowman that doesn't need snow. Its the craft that the kids (and moms!) and I crafted in my kitchen this month - a yarn-wrapped snowman.  If you're stuck inside waiting for a snowstorm to stop or don't have any snow to work with, why not craft along! It's easy and the materials are readily available.

Yarn-wrapped Snowman
To start, make balls with scrap paper.  I used old computer printer paper.  Make a ball for a head and one or two for the body.  Shape them by rolling or pushing against your work surface.

Next, wrap the balls with yarn until the paper is covered. Add a little glue to hold the ends down.

Glue the balls together.  You can use a toothpick to connect the balls together more securely if you like.

Now, it's time to decorate.  You can use felt, buttons, chenille stems, pom poms, wiggle eyes or whatever you like and have around the house.

Here's a cute snowman that one of the kids created:
Happy Crafting!
