Easy Felt Crafts: Felt Circles Snowman


This fun and easy Felt Circles Snowman is an easy crafts project made with pieces of felt. I use a needle and thread to connect the pieces of felt, but a chenille wire can be used like in the Felt Circles Angel project.

Take a look at this little guy - and no cold fingers either!

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Felt Crafts: Felt Circles Snowman:

Print a copy of both pages of the Felt Circles Snowman pattern.

One page provides the pattern for each piece along with the number and color of pieces needed.

The second page outlines how to stack the different pieces to form the felt circles snowman.

Cut around each of the pattern pieces such that you have 6 circles and one scarf pattern. 

Cut the felt circles as follows (sizes are in inches):

Cut one of the scarf pattern from the red felt.

Felt circles snowman step 1 cut out the pieces of felt

Use the second page of the pattern to stack the circles for the bottom snowball, the top snowball and the hat.

Felt circles snowman step 2 group pieces together

Work from the bottom of the bottom snowball up to the top of the hat.

Fold the bottom white felt circle in half and half again to find the center of the circle.

Push the needle through the middle of the corner formed by quartering the circle. Leave two to three inches of thread.

Push the needle through again in the same place and pull the thread taut.

Felt circles snowman step 3 anchor thread in bottom circle

Using the thread tail, tie a square or "hard" knot in the thread close to the felt circle.

Trim the thread tail leaving 1/4 inch of thread above the knot.

Felt circles snowman step 4 knot thread securely

Use the quartering process to find the center of the next circle.

Push the needle through the center point.

Felt circles snowman step 5 add next layer

Continue adding the layers for the bottom snowball by pushing the needle and thread through the center of each circle.

Felt circles snowman step 6 build bottom snowball

Follow the same steps to add the top snowball.

Felt circles snowman step 7 add layers for top snowball

Next, add the layers for the hat starting with the black hat brim, the red hat band and the black top hat portion.

Felt circles snowman step 8 add hat layers

Anchor the thread at the top of the hat with several stitches in one place.

Make a loop in the thread.

Securely knot the thread close to the top of the hat.

Carefully clip the thread.

Felt circles snowman step 9 make loop

Add the scarf by wrapping the felt circles snowman's neck with the red felt.

Insert the opposite end of the red felt through the slit to hold the scarf in place.

Felt circles snowman step 10 add scarf

Hang the little felt circles snowman in a window, on a cabinet pull, on a drawer pull, from a lamp or anywhere he can add a smile.

Felt circles snowman finished and on display

Inexpensive materials, a few common tools and a little time makes one or many of these simple and fun snow people.

These little ornaments can add smiles by hanging in an office, a kitchen, a car or anywhere.

With a few changes, this little snowman could also become a fun little winter key chain.

And, if you have several different sized of circle punches, this could be a fun and easy paper project using construction paper or card stock.

Have fun being creative with your own felt circles snowman!
