Welcome to the Third Day of Christmas! Today, we’re sharing an easy to make embroidery hoop snowman door hanger. I’ve mentioned before that even though we don’t get snow here in coastal South Carolina, that doesn’t mean that we don’t enjoy decorating with snowmen! I’ll be displaying this on a guest room door over the holidays.
Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
Embroidery Hoop Snowman Door Hanger
2 Embroidery Hoops – One Larger Than The Other
Stiff White Felt Sheet
Orange Glass Bead
Tan Chenille Stem
Small Black Pom Poms
Wide Red Ribbon
There are white pom poms pictured above, but as I was putting this together, I realized they weren’t big enough. Rather that trying to buy bigger ones, I decided to make some yarn pom pom snowballs instead.
You can make this any size you’d like. I wanted mine to be large enough for a door. One hoop should be larger than the other. The first step is to wrap yarn around each loop. When I reached the end, I hot glued the end of the yarn in place. I glued the two hoops together and then wrapped yarn to cover the screws and most of the space between the two hoops.
I bought two sheets of stiff white felt to use for the face and body of the snowman. I cut circles of the felt to fit the hoops.
Once the circles were cut, they were hot glued to the back of the hoops.
For the snowman’s face, I used two small black buttons for the eyes. I needed something for the buttons to attach to and as I plundered through my craft stash, I found some small magnets with white backing. They were the perfect size. Sometimes, it’s the oddest things that work! Searching for something orange for the nose was a little easier. I have a stash of craft beads and this orange one worked well. Tiny black pom poms are glued in place for the mouth. To make the corn cob pipe, I used tan chenille stems, twisted around until I had the shape I wanted.
To completely cover the spot where the two hoops connect, I hot glued a yarn pom pom snowball in place. The ribbon is hot glued to the back of the snowman and draped around. I added a small dot of hot glue in the front to keep it in place. I added three silver snowflakes with hot glue on the body.
To keep the hat from flopping, I measured a piece of cardboard to fit in between two pieces of black felt with white sprinkles. The ribbon and another yarn snowball are glued in place.
A few more yarn snowballs are glued around the bottom of the snowman.
A piece of twine is glued to the back of the snowman’s scarf to use for hanging.
To add a little more support and to keep the twine in place, I cut a strip of stiff felt and glued it between the two hoops.
Making the yarn snowballs is super easy. I wrap yarn around my fingers, slip it off, tie a piece of yarn around the loops, snip, and fluff.
I think our guests will get a smile as they walk into their room while they’re visiting us. This would also be a fun addition to a kid’s room for holiday decor.
