The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Felt and Twig Snowman:
Print the Easy Christmas Crafts Felt and Twig Snowman Pattern and cut out each of the shapes.
Cut one of the snowman shapes from the white felt.
Cut one of the long, thin rectangles for the scarf from fabric or felt.
Place the large rectangle on the canvas or fabric.
Make sure the edges of the pattern follow the lengthwise and crosswise threads in the fabric.
Cut one of the large rectangle.
Cut one of the hat shape from the black felt.
Save the small black felt scraps for the buttons and face.
Add fringe to the ends of the scarf.
For a fabric scarf remove several threads from the ends to form the fringe.
For a felt scarf, make narrow clips in the ends of the felt 1/4 inch long.
Pull threads from each edge of the background to fringe the edges.
Work enough threads loose to have a 1/4 inch fringe.
Trim the fringed edges to straighten.
Using the pattern as a guide, make the small cuts in the top of the background fabric to hold the twig hanger.
Position the snowman shape on the background fabric.
Center the shape across the fabric and between the cuts for the twig hanger and the bottom edge.
Insert the twigs for arms.
Glue the snowman and the twigs to the background fabric.
Use a half-knot to tie the scarf to fit across the snowman's neck.
Glue the circle together.
Glue the upper scarf end to the lower piece just below the half-knot.
Glue the scarf to the snowman.
Cut small pieces of black felt for the snowman's buttons and for his face.
Glue the felt pieces to the snowman.
