Assembling the Snowman Garland
Once you have cut all of your snowman pieces, lay them on a flat surface.
Step 1 – Lay the felt pieces in place without gluing to see placement.
Step 2 – Apply a bead of hot glue to the top of the snowman for the hat and attach the hat.
Step 3 – Apply a small amount of glue to the carrot nose and adhere in place.
Step 4 – Apply hot glue to the back of the scarf and adhere in place.
Step 5 – Apply two small dots of glue to the belly and add buttons.
Step 6 – Using the Puffy Dimensional Fabric paint, add the eyes and mouth.
Step 7 – Set the felt snowman aside to fully dry.
Step 8 – Add a small bead of glue above the hat brim and attach the ribbon.
Step 10 – Optional – Add a second hat cutout to the back of the hat. This is not necessary if the back of the snowman will not be seen. If the back will be seen, adding a second hat piece will complete the overall look.
Repeat for every snowman you add to your garland.
NOTE: THE FABRIC PUFF PAINT CAN TAKE SEVERAL HOURS TO DRY. ALLOW THE SNOWMEN TO SIT IN A SECLUDED SPOT TO AVOID SMEARING WHILE DRYING.
The Pom Poms
Using a darning needle and twine, thread through the center of the pom poms. There will be one pom pom between each snowman and at the end of the garland.
Putting the DIY Felt Snowman Garland together.
On a flat surface lay out the twine with pom poms.
Place the back of a snowman in between the pom poms and move the pom poms, so that they are spaced evenly apart between all of the snowmen on the garland.
Secure the twine to the back of the snowman, using a bead of hot glue ( Make sure that the twine is on the upper part of the snowman to avoid it being top-heavy and flipping over when hanging)
Run a bead of hot glue around the edges of the back section of the snowman.
Place the top section of the snowman onto the back, lining up the edges. Press down onto the glue.
Repeat for all of the snowmen on the garland.
Allow all of the snowmen to fully dry before hanging.
How to store your Felt Snowman Garland
Store the snowmen stacked on top of one another to keep your garland looking fresh every time. This will prevent curling or fold marks when you use them again. If possible wrap in tissue and place in a small box.
I hope you have fun making our DIY Felt snowman Garland and get many years of enjoyment out of it.
