HOOP HOOP HOORAY IT’S WINTERTIME

TO APPRECIATE THE BEAUTY OF A SNOWFLAKE IT IS NECESSARY TO STAND OUT IN THE COLD
Aristotle

With Christmas 2019 behind us, and the start of another decade upon us, it also means winter has,or is about to hit most of the country, and many areas around the world.

Snow is forcasted here one day and by the next it is off the radar, we have seen tons of rain as of late, but thank the universe the temps have been warm enough that at least up to today as I type this post up nothing has frozen severely.

I keep most of my holiday decor up until March, it saves my energy and also gives me an excuse to collect and craft all things snow and snowmen.

I have wanted to create an embroidery hoop snowman face ever since I seen them circulating around Pinterest a few years back, this year I got around to it.

All of the following are made with thrifted hoops, when I see them I pick them up, I hot glue the fabric to the back of the hoop for a tight secure hold.

The first is made with scrap, and thrifted, burlap type fabric with plastic canvas pieces for the face, the hoop is 10 inches and you can click HERE for the plastic canvas cutouts.

The second was made with some blue canvas type fabric I thrifted , I painted the face on similarly to the ornaments I made last year (HERE)

The nose is done in plastic canvas, I have tons of little scraps which I use to toss out but have now planned to try and use up as much of it as I can into projects.

The third one I was inspired by some toques that we gifted our younger boys this year and came up with this. I did the hat on plastic canvas- PATTERN HERE, made my own pom pom and then hot glued it to fabric I had placed in an embroidery hoop as well.

All of my hoops hang off of hooks ( screws lol) on my blanket ladders throughout the house.

I have a simple way to make ladders, if you haven’t seen it yet you can HERE

  1. Your hoop snowmen and winter hat are so cute! The closest I’ve gotten to plastic canvas is cross stitch which I did for years and years. It’s very relaxing! I’m visiting from Artsy Fartsy. If you are interested, I also shared a winter craft #46. πŸ™‚

  3. These are so creative. I love how you turned the hoops into snowmen, so cute. I picked up some faux fuzzy snowballs at Target after Christmas on sale and I want to make a Winter Snowman with them. We will see if I ever get around to that.
