You will need:

• White wool

• Scis­sors

• Craft glue

• Pipe clean­ers or twigs

• Rib­bon

• Beads, se­quins, stick-on gems, goo­gly eyes or any other dec­o­ra­tions you want to use!

What to do:

Step 1. Grab the ball of wool and start wrap­ping wool around two or three fin­gers, leav­ing about 10cm hang­ing off the end. De­pend­ing on how thick you want to make your snow­man’s head, we rec­om­mend wrap­ping the wool about 30-50 times. When you think it’s thick enough, leave about the same length of wool at the end and snip. Keep­ing the loops to­gether, gen­tly slide them off your fin­gers.

Step 2. Grab the two ends and tightly tie them around the loops like you’re cre­at­ing a small par­cel. Then seal with a knot.

Step 3. Us­ing scis­sors, gen­tly go around the edges and cut the loops, but don’t cut the long ends yet! It should now start to look like a pom pom, so just fluff it out a bit more and trim the bits to make it more even.

Step 4. Re­peat the above steps for the snow­man’s body, but this time wrap the wool around four fin­gers about 40-60 times or more if you want a big round body.

Step 5. Take the loose ends of the two pom poms and tie them to­gether to form the snow­man. Trim any ex­cess wool or loose ends.

Step 6. Now it’s time to dec­o­rate your snow­man with your craft sup­plies! We gave ours a rib­bon scarf and used pipe clean­ers to make lit­tle head­phones and arms. Twigs make great arms too!
