[size=21]~ Make an Adorable Snow Folk Family ~

Create a group of carolers or a sleighful of happy winter friends with your mismatched children's mittens, wooden balls, and lots of imagination. The sky is the limit!
You can display these snow people in a basket with sprigs of greenery and holly berries, or place them in a sleigh. Fill the sleigh with cotton batting and place each family member in their seat. Place these cute little people on your fireplace mantel, or attach a piece of gold cord and hang from your tree or in your doorway.
You will need;

  • children's mittens
  • rice
  • cotton batting
  • 11/4" diameter wooden balls
  • buttons
  • mismatched infant or children's socks
  • small pom poms
  • scrap material for scarves
  • silk florals (holiday springs, berries, flowers, etc.)
  • sleigh or basket
  • tiny black plastic eyes or black acrylic paint
  • rosey lipstick
    black marker

    Basic Snow Person:
    Fill the hand portion of a child's mitten with one or two handfuls of rice, fill the rest of the way with cotton batting, be sure to fill thumb as well. Cut a scrap piece of material for scarf and gently tie around the mitten where the ribbing of the cuff meets the plain material of the mitten (end of the cuff). When tying scarf, point the scarf material away from the thumb to make it appear as if the scarf is covering the person's other arm.) Fold down cuff to cover scarf and form a turtle neck. Hot glue on wooden ball to top of turned down cuff. Glue on tiny plastic eyes or paint on with black acrylic paint. Use black marker for mouth. Gently dot on lipstick for cheeks by applying first to your finger and then dotting onto face. Glue 2 or 3 buttons to tummy area. Glue a stem of holiday florals or greenery tucked into the arm (thumb), and glue arm to the mitten body.

    You can personalize each snow person with different hats, scarves, florals, and more. Our examples show how you can create an entire family of folks by simply using different colored mittens, scarves, and different styles of hats and ear muffs.
