Craft Project: Snow Baby Ornament

I've been having a lot of fun creating new Christmas ornaments lately. This is my latest creation, Snow Baby. She's very easy to make and made with the most humble supplies. You could easily create a boy version as well. Just exclude the bow and make a blue scarf instead. This also might be nice for a "Baby's first Christmas ornament". Directions below as always.

Supplies:
Embroidery Thread - Brown
Fabric Glue
Felt - Pink, Brown, and Tan
Sewing Needle
Yarn - White
First you will need to make two pom poms about the size of golf balls. One should be slightly bigger than the other one. For the larger pom pom you will want to create two long tails for it when you make it. For directions on how to make a pom pom, click here.

Once you have your pom poms made, cut out a tan felt circle slightly smaller than the smaller pom pom (refer to picture). Cut out hair and a bow. Glue on hair with fabric glue. Now embroider on the eyes and mouth. Last, glue on the bow. Set aside.

Next thread the yarn tail on a tapestry needle and pull it through the center of the small pom pom. Repeat with the other tail. This will secure your two pom poms together. I also recommend adding a little glue between them for extra durability. Last, tie the two tails together at the top to make a loop for hanging the ornament on the tree.

Flatten the top pom pom, and glue the face on. Cut out a small strip of pink felt with pinking shears for the scarf. Wrap the scarf between the two pom poms and glue. Done.

*If you decide to make this as a "Baby's First Christmas Ornament", you might want to embroider the year on the scarf.
