I recently decided that my old Christmas wreath was just not going to cut it this year, so I decided I needed to make a new one. After spending WAY to much time on Pinterest, I found two I really liked and decided to mix the two together and tweak it a bit to look more snowmanish. I really liked the shape and wire arms/hat that Craft Goodies had and use of cotton balls the BHG had.
So I set out with several 60% off Joann’s coupons and bought 3 styrofoam wreaths in a variety of sizes.
- 4 bags of cotton balls
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- 3 styrofoam wreaths
- Wire (25 gauge)
- Red ribbon (to hang the snowman)
- Elmers Spray Adhesive
- Craft Essentials Glitter, clear
First: I made my scarf using a snowflake Christmas tree skirt from the Dollar Store. I cut out a long piece of the skirt into the shape of a scarf and quickly finished the edges.
Second: Using wire I secured all three styrofoam wreaths together.
Third: I used a hot glue gun to secure cotton balls to the styrofoam wreaths. I ended up using around 350 cotton balls.
Fifth: I laced the ribbon through two of the wreaths and covered it with cotton balls. (can you see the bump? kinda looks like a tongue or something 🙂
Then I hung him up. Doesn’t he look cool?!
