Snip, Stitch and Tuck Snowmen From Notions

What a cute way to recycle old odds and ends from your sewing box!
       Some ornaments are "sew" easy they hardly take much consideration at all to assemble. Make these fun little fellows with your children on a lazy Sunday afternoon. All you need is a treasure trove of old sewing notions and an nice skein or two of white wool yarn.

Supply List:
  • white wool yarn
  • thimbles and a flexible measuring tape
  • pins and needles
  • buttons and old hooks
  • old wooden spools
  • card stock
  • hot glue gun and glue
Step-by-Step Directions:
  1. Wrap wool yarn around a bit of card stock over and over until the wool forms round balls. 
  2. Attach and stack these yarn balls to each other with a long threaded needle using a similar color to the white wool.
  3. Hot glue an old wooden spool or a old tin thimble to the top of the snowman's head to serve as a "hat"
  4. Sew onto the snowman's face tiny odd notions: buttons for eyes, old hooks for noses, flexible measuring tape for scarfs etc...
  5. Weave a thin wire hook into their backs for hanging.
