Make a Felted Snowman Craft
This warm and wooly snowman is a jolly, happy soul! Make this festive holiday craft for your home by following our step-by-step instructions below.
Materials (for one snowman)
- 12-inch square of 2-inch-thick foam rubber
- Wool roving: white, orange, and black
- Felting needles: No. 36 and No. 38
- 22-gauge wire: black
- Variegated yarn
- Size 10 knitting needles
- Lay the foam rubber on a work surface. Pull off a tuft of white roving and place it on the foam rubber. Roll one end of the roving toward the center of tuft. Use a felting needle to poke roving repeatedly while turning and shaping it into a ball. Using the No. 36 felting needle, needle-felt the ball center until it is slightly firm. Continue to needle-felt the ball, adding more roving until the ball measures 4 inches in diameter. Finish felting with the No. 38 needle for a smoother appearance.
Editor's Tip: To help the snowman stand firmly, flatten the bottom of snowman by poking the base with the No. 36 felting needle.
