Yarn Ball Snowman

Hello Friends!  I bet you’ve noticed I’ve taken a bit of a blogging break for the month of December.  I just want to have time with my boys during this magical time of year.  I know that one day they will be older and not want to do crafts, decorate gingerbread houses, and read holiday stories on the sofa.  A few weeks ago, I shared this cute Yarn Ball Snowman craft my boys helped me make over on Sugar Bee Crafts…perfect for the Holidays and all winter.  I LOVE decor that is not specific to Christmas and can be left out all winter….especially Snowmen!

How would you like to learn how I made this fun Snowman?  Bonus- Your kids can help!  My boys each assisted in creating their own Snowman and are so proud to have them displayed in their rooms. Yarn Ball Snowman decor- OneKriegerChick.com Supplies…Basically, you need 3 sizes of Styrofoam balls, white yarn, a hot glue gun, and embellishments.

Yarn Balls I added a little hot glue to the ball and started wrapping the yarn around.  I wrapped it in all different directions until the ball was completely covered.  Then I knotted off the end of the yarn.

I stacked the balls to look like a Snowman and glued them together with hot glue.

Now to embellish…

Buttons for eyes and buttons on the middle section…

The broken tip of an orange crayon for the nose…

A scrap of fabric tied around his neck for a scarf…

Sticks for arms…I just stuck them right into the Styrofoam ball…

For the hat, I cut A circle of black cardstock.  Then I rolled a strip of black cardstock and glued it to the circle.  The glitter band is glitter washi tape and helps hide the glue strip. Snowman made from Yarn balls...so cute and kids can help make them! OneKriegerChick.com Set him in a cute tea cup or creamer pitcher and enjoy all winter long!
