Christmas Craft - Cute Scrubby Yarn Snowman Christmas Tree Ornament

Scrubby yarn normally gets used to crochet decorative wash cloths for the kitchen. But not for this project. Here, we decided to make another use of the yarn and create an adorable snowman ornament. The yarn makes the snowman look so adorable and fuzzy. He will be the perfect addition to any Christmas tree. This craft is not only easy to make but is quickly finished, as well.

Time required: about 15-30 minutes

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List for this snowman:

Paper Balls and Foam Balls

- 2 pressed paper balls or foam balls in 2 different sizes
- iridescent white, green and silver scrubby yarn (you can use other colors for the scarf and hat if you like)
- snowman hat
- 4 mm black wooden beads for the eyes and buttons
- 1 red 4 mm wooden bead for the nose
- a paper clip to make the hanger
- hot glue gun


Scrubby Yarn Snowman Tutorial 1
1. Place a drop of hot glue on one of the balls and press one end of the yarn onto the glue. When cooled down, simply wrap the yarn around the ball in different directions until the ball is completly covered with the yarn. Cut the yarn and use a drop of glue to secure it on the ball.

2. Make the second ball in the same manner. When assembling the 2 snowballs together, glue them together where the drops of glue were added. That way the glue cannot be seen.

3. Then add the eyes, nose and front buttons. Tie a piece of green scrubby yarn around the neck as a scarf.

4. Wrap yarn aound the hat twice and use a drop of glue to secure the ends to the hat. Poke a hole in the top center of the hat. Open up the paper clip and trim the length down to about 2 centimeters. Create a loop at one end. Insert the other end through the poked hole and bend the second end 45° so that it remains in the hat. Glue the hat then onto the snowman head. Add a scrubby yarn loop to hang the hat.
