Snowman Ornaments

Davis' class party is on Wednesday. I thought it would be nice to make each of his classmates a snowman ornament.

I was inspired by a pattern in the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens Crafts issue. I stitched each child's initial on the untraditional hats.

Added a few buttons, wiggly eyes and scarf.

Add a little ric-rac to use for hanging on the tree.

Just so you don't think I have my act together. Below is a picture of the garland that should be beautifully wrapped and tied around my banister. Just keeping it real, folks!

Oh my gosh, I love these. Can you tell us how you made them? Or maybe I can just check BHG website...either way, I love them and want to make one for my daughter! :)

Those are too cute. I would love to do those but with 3 boys in school, I do not think I could make 55 of them!

Oh my gosh - thank you for keeping it real at the end. Because when I read I thought it would be nice to make each of his classmates a snowman ornament. and saw the darling pictures, I about fainted.

You are AWESOME mama. What a precious project.

How cute! I'm not crafty enough to make these but someday I would like to try. I think I would lose patience.
