Felt Mini Snowman

DIY Mini Felt Snowman | onelmon With Christmas just around the corner, DIY and craft sites have been flooded with nothing but all the lovely Christmas-related DIYs, gift ideas, decorations and recipes. And though we don’t celebrate Christmas here, it doesn’t mean I’m skipping the fun to make something too! So, here you go, the felt mini snowmen to welcome a happy white Christmas.

Hari Natal akan segera tiba dalam hitungan hari dan situs-situs craft dan DIY telah dipenuhi dekorasi-dekorasi cantik bertema Natal. Walau kami tidak merayakan Natal, saya tidak mau ketinggalan membuat sesuatu bertema Natal juga (paling tidak, 3 boneka salju ini juga ingin turut merayakan Natal bersama).

What you need:

  1. Felt;
  2. Cotton (filling);
  3. Needle and thread;
  4. Scissors;
  5. Marker.

Yang anda butuhkan:

  1. Flanel;
  2. Kapas (isi);
  3. Jarum dan benang;
  4. Gunting;
  5. Spidol.

DIY Mini Felt Snowman | onelmon Step 1: Draw 2 circles on a piece of white felt with diameter of 7 cm and 4 cm. Cut them out.

Langkah 1: Gambarlah 2 lingkaran pada flanel warna putih dengan diameter 7 cm dan 4 cm. Gunting. DIY Mini Felt Snowman | onelmon Step 2: Make a running stitch at the edge of the circle, place the filling in the center and pull the tread to make a pot-like ball.

Langkah 2: Jahit mendatar pada sisi luar dari lingkaran, taruh kapas isian di tengah, dan tarik benang sampai flanel membentuk bola kecil seperti pot. DIY Mini Felt Snowman | onelmon Step 3: Repeat step 2 for the other felt and you’ll get 2 cotton-filled balls (big and small).

Langkah 3: Ulangi langkah 2 untuk flanel yang satunya lagi dan anda akan mendapat 2 bola berisi kapas (besar dan kecil). DIY Mini Felt Snowman | onelmon Step 4: Join the two balls together by threads or glue and give it a pair of eyes with a marker.

Langkah 4: Sambung kedua bola dengan benang atau lem dan beri sepasang mata dengan spidol. DIY Mini Felt Snowman Step 5: Cut a 1 cm x 20 cm long felt of your favorite color and wrap it around the little snowman’s neck.

Langkah 5: Potong kain flanel berukuran 1 cm x 20 cm dengan warna favorit anda dan lingkarkan di leher boneka salju sebagai syal. DIY Mini Felt Snowman | onelmon You can also make a few of them and have them as your Christmas gift toppers.

Boneka-boneka salju ini juga dapat digunakan sebagai hiasan kado Natal. DIY Mini Felt Snowman | onelmon Oh, and I tried using the free software, PicMonkey to make the collage above. It’s easy to use but the colors are a bit off (I wonder if it’s my computer or it’s the software, really).

Oh, dan saya mencoba software gratis, PicMonkey untuk membuat susunan foto di atas. Cara pemakaiannya cukup mudah tetapi warna foto jadi sedikit berbeda (Saya kurang tahu apakah ini masalah komputer saya atau software itu sendiri). DIY Mini Felt Snowman | onelmon I wish we have some snow here to make a real snowman (which is impossible unless the 21-12-12 prophecy makes changes to it) ;) Thank you for stopping by and though it’s a bit early, I wish you all a Merry Christmas! :D

Terima kasih telah membaca dan walau sedikit kecepatan, saya mengucapkan Selamat Natal untuk semuanya! Happy Christmas! :D

  5. j’ai découvert votre blog aujourd’hui (grâce au board Pinterest de Francine Clouden – merci à elle aussi :) !), et… j’adore !… vos créations sont adorables, pleines de charme, et, surtout, elles semblent simples ! souvent, en voyant certains modèles, je les trouve jolis, mais je me dis que c’est trop compliqué pour moi, alors que ces petits bonshommes de neige, par exemple, sont “accessibles” et c’est ce que je cherche avant tout : je partage sur le Net des liens vers des freebies et des créations pour permettre à un maximum de personnes de créer des choses par elles-mêmes… après un grave accident, c’est ce qui m’a sauvée : je suis restée handicapée, mais je dis souvent que, tant que mes mains pourront créer, je ne pourrais pas être malheureuse, et je veux apporter cela aux autres… merci de tout cœur pour toutes les jolies choses que vous partagez si gentiment et si généreusement !

  6. wah lucunya.. aku pengin buat untuk Natal besok.. thanks a lot Onel.. Oiy, apa km punya account di twitter, fb, kakao talk or whatsapp..?? thanks before… -Ellie- ^_^

  8. uh i love them! Glad i found them in time to do alot of them (christmas gifts) Maybe i send you a little picture of my army of tiny snowmen when iam finished.
    Greetings from Germany (we didn’t see snow yet – iam waiting!)

    Nina

    • Delighted, Nina!! Surely, there is still a lot of time to make this before Christmas because we can make a lot in a short time! And please do send me your version of the snowmen! Would totally love to see them in the army outfit!
      The weather is getting colder here too in Japan (no chance of snowing though, or at least not yet!) Take care! :)

  9. Tnx so much.it’s a beautiful gift.we don’t have christmas in Iran but I make them for winter and I gift to my best friends :)

    • Thank you, Faeze :D Not everyone here in Indonesia celebrate Christmas too (including me) and above that, we don’t have winter either and that’s a very kind thought of yours, Faeze. Your friends would be touched to receive something handmade :)

  10. We still have snow here in Chariton, Iowa, USA, yes at the end of March. I made real miniature snowmen but these I would not have to keep in the freezer!! Thank you for sharing your lovely creations. I pin many of your crafts.

    • It’s still snowing there at where you live?
      (Envy!) How I hope we have some snow here (though ironically, the temperature is getting higher day by day as we are welcoming the dry season pretty soon, or maybe it’s here already)

      Thank You for always coming back to drop me some sweet comments (really appreciate them!) and sharing all these posts, Karen! (Frankly, I stalk my Pinterest’s analytics in daily basis and I know I just must thank you.) Do come again! :D

    • Hello, Emily. No worries, there are still lots of holidays to come in 2013! I hope you had a great Christmas holiday and I wish you Happy New Year!

      ** I’m glad you found your way here and happier to hear that you are following the blog’s future updates! Thank you and welcome on-board!

  11. These are SUPER cute!! I’ve featured them on my FB page with a link back to your blog! What a wonderful idea for a gift topper. I’m so going to make a few! :)
