Make this easy Snowman Centerpiece Mat to show off a special candle, dish full of goodies or a special Christmas decoration you would like to showcase.
If you’re not into sewing don’t hesitate to pull out your glue and go to town. This way the kids can be involved. Come along, we have a gift or special centerpiece to make.
Supplies: 2 pieces of blue felt, 1 piece light blue felt, 4 pieces white felt, scraps of orange and black felt. If sewing white embroidery floss, 4 blue stars ( make or you can find them at Hobby Lobby), black embroidery floss, snowflake and crystal embellishments.
I used my cricket to cut a 11 inch scalloped pattern and 8 1/2 inch scalloped pattern. Cut 2 inch circle for pattern for faces. Refer to the picture for placement.
From the 11 inch scalloped pattern cut 2 dark blue felt pieces, cut 1 scalloped light blue felt piece, cut 4 circles from white felt, cut 8 black felt eyes, cut 4 triangles from orange felt for nose.
If you are sewing, center the light blue scalloped felt and using a blanket stitch, going around the edges to secure. Do the same with the 4 white round felt pieces for faces. Sew on eyes, nose and using black embroidery floss sew on mouth. Sew on blue stars.
Using second dark blue felt piece and white embroidery floss sew the top to the second blue felt piece.
Glue on the snowflakes and crystals.
If you’re not sewing, glue everything in place and let dry. Make several of these. Change up the colors and make it your own. ENJOY!
