Default 3rd Instruction Contest- So cute Snowman

So Cute Snowman

Its getting colder, so get ready to make some cute snowmen for clippies, pins, or even ornaments! Get your supplies together:



This is a list of them:
(I measured the ribbons to make it easier...not sure if it just makes more work!? lol!)

Make sure you heat seal all the ribbon before starting!
  • 1 1/2 wide white ribbon 5 in long (Bottom of snowman)
  • 3/8 wide white ribbon 3 1/2 in long ( back stabilizer)
  • '' '' '' '' 2 1/2 in long (inside stabilizer)
  • 7/8 wide white ribbon 4 1/2 in long (middle of snowman)
  • '' '' '' '' 3 1/2 in long (head of snowman)
  • 3/8 wide your choice ribbon (design or woven) 5 1/2 in long (scarf)
  • '' '' '' '' '' 2 in long (mittens)
  • 7/8 wide black ribbon 2 in long (hat)
  • 3/8 wide black ribbon 1 1/2 in long (hat brim)
  • 1/4 wide color of your choice ribbon to match scarf/mittens (ribbon on hat)
  • 1/4 wide orange ribbon 1/2 in long (carrot nose)
  • 3 mm Black pom poms (eyes, buttons) --I got mine @ Joann's
  • 1/8 wide brown ribbon (arms)
Step 1



Glue the three pieces of "body" ribbon in a circle


Step 2 and 3



Arrange your snowman body and glue to "back stabilizer" piece

It will look like this:



(The extra on top is to stabilize the hat)


Step 4 and 5



Take your " inside stabilizer" piece, and glue it on the inside of the bottom two circles of snowman's body. (This will not be seen)

Then take your black ribbon for the hat and fold in half and glue. (I like to just glue the two ends which gives the hat more of a 3D effect.)


Step 6



Put your hat together and glue. Then glue complete hat to head of snowman.

It will look like this:



Step 7



Take your "scarf" ribbon and wrap around snowman and glue. (I put a bead of glue in the center back, and then one in front attaching scarf to snowman, and another where the scarf ends criss cross)

Step 8



Take orange ribbon (carrot nose), fold in half and glue ends and then place in the middle of snowman's head..or wherever you think looks best.


Step 9 and 10

Take 1/8 piece of brown ribbon (arms) and cut an inch off. Then cut both pieces in half. (You'll have two 2 inch pieces and two 1/2 in pieces)

Take piece of designed/woven ribbon (mittens) and cut in half, then round each top.

Now heat seal all ribbon pieces. (Sorry to have you do this again!)
It should look similar to picture below.


Step 11

Assemble arms, glue together and glue to snowman...like this.
( I glued the arms to body under the scarf pieces to hide it a little)



Step 12

Glue mittens onto arms like this.
(Side note: I also think he looks cute without mittens, so its your choice)



Step 13 and 14

Glue on the pom poms for eyes and buttons.
(It also looks cute to attach a little embellishment to the hat -as seen in pic) See below picture.


Now attach your snowman to a lined clip, pin or string and you're done!
Good job!


Here's a pic of a little snowman family!



Thanks for looking!
As this was my first tutorial, I hope it turned out okay and wasn't too long or confusing. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Thank you for the clear instructions. It's about time to start thinking about snowmen I guess (sigh).
