I just love creating DIY ornaments and these Chilly Snowman Embroidered Hoop Ornaments are so fun and quick to make!
These sweet little mini hoop ornaments are so fun to make! They have fun little pom pom ear muffs and rick rack scarves – and they are perfect for beginners or expert stitchers!
These are made in 3″ little embroidery hoops, so they are great for ornaments, gifts, and decorations on presents! They don’t take very long to stitch either – you can put one together in just a little while! They are easy to customize as well. You can change up the colors, add felt for the nose, all sorts of things!
Chilly Snowman Embroidered Hoop Ornaments
- 5″ square of fabric – I used Blossom in Silver
- Embroidery Floss – I used a dark gray and orange Aurifil
- Yarn for pom poms or store-bought pom poms. I used Lori Holt’s chunky yarn for mine
- 3″ wood embroidery hoop
- 6″ colored wire – I found mine at Wal-mart
- 10″ coordinating rick rack
- Ribbon for hanging
- Marking Pen for transferring pattern
- Chilly Snowman Embroidery Pattern
- Transfer pattern onto the fabric and place in the embroidery hoop.
- Embroider the design. Use a satin stitch for the eyes, a long and short stitch for the nose, and a back stitch for the smile. As an alternative idea, you can use a felt piece for the nose and stitch it on with a running stitch.
- Trim the excess fabric around the hoop, about 1/2″ past the edge of the hoop. Glue the fabric inside the back of the hoop. I find hot glue works great for this!
- Cut a section of wire for the top part of the earmuffs. Next, glue the ends to the sides of the embroidery hoop, so the wire is about a 1/2″ above the top edge of the hoop. I like mine a little off center, but feel free to glue yours however you’d like!
- If you are making pom poms, go ahead and make those now. Glue the pom poms on each side of the hoop, over the wire.
- Cut a piece of the rick rack about 2″ long. Tie a knot in the rick rack about 2″ from the end. Glue the rick rack along the bottom of the hoop, from the knot to the other end. Feel free to trim the other end, you don’t want a crazy long scarf. Leave the short end after the knot unglued. Glue the 2″ rick rack piece on the back of the hoop so it looks like the other end of the scarf.
- Add a length of ribbon to the opening at the top of the hoop and knot the ends together, for hanging the ornament.
I’ll be doing a Live tutorial in my Facebook Group today (Monday) at 2 pm CST to show off how fun these are to make! I will walk you through making them including how to assemble, stitch, and decorate them!
There will also be a few more ornament tutorials on the blog this week to get you all set for Christmas!
