Making a snowman wreath is so easy when you use embroidery hoops!
I wanted a Christmas wreath that could stay up throughout the winter, and not be too Christmasy. A snowman wreath seemed like the perfect idea.
Materials needed to make Snowman Wreath:

- Embroidery hoops (the ones I used were approximately 3 inches, 6 inches, and 8 inches)
- 3 Sheets white craft felt (really cheap at fabric stores or Walmart)
- 1 Sheet black craft felt (I used ridged felt that I got at Walmart for something like 70 cents)
- 1 Sheet orange craft felt
- 1 Sheet red craft felt
- Assorted black buttons (check your local thrift store– some sell packages for cheap)
- Black thread and sewing needle (or hot glue gun)
- 2 twigs for the arms
- Piece of cardboard for the backing
- Hot glue gun
How to make an Embroidery Hoop Snowman Wreath:
First off, run to your local Walmart or fabric shop to get the craft felt. It’s so cheap there, compared to these online prices. I think I paid around 20 cents per normal sheet, and about 70 cents for the ridged black).
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, here are your actual directions:
Lay your first embroidery hoop on the white felt. Stretch the felt tight over the inner hoop, and then push the outer hoop on and tighten.
Repeat with the other 2 hoops.
Trim the excess felt off the back.
Cut out hat, hat brim, and carrot nose. Lay them out, and once you’re sure how you want them positioned, hot glue them into place.
Lay out buttons to create eyes and a mouth, and a row down the front. Either hot glue or sew in place. I tried hot gluing first, but I didn’t like the way the glue came through the button holes, so I ended up sewing them on.
Lay out the embroidery hoops over the piece of cardboard, and use a pencil to mark where each should go. They run a bead of hot glue across it, and push the embroidery hoop into place. Repeat with the other 2 hoops.
Use the scissors to cut a hole in the cardboard in order to hang up the wreath.
