This weekend I made a new wreath for my side entry door. I love making wreaths of all kinds and have wanted to try one like this for some time. So I finally attempted a double hoop snowman wreath.

This is one of those projects that you are so excited to start and then realized when it is finished that you failed – totally failed – to take pictures of the process. But it really is such a simple wreath to make that you should be able to replicate it from the photos I do have.
For this project you will need:
- 2 – 8″ wire wreath forms
- White decorative mesh ribbon
- Black felt
- Red Burlap Ribbon
- Hat of your choice
- Pipe Cleaners
- Orange felt for nose
- Twigs from your yard or broom
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
To make this snowman wreath you will first start by looping the white mesh ribbon through the wire wreath form until fully covered. Attache the mesh ribbon to the wire form using the pipe cleaners. Cover both 8″ wire forms the same way.
Attach the two wire forms together in the shape of a snowman with more pipe cleaners.
Cut out small round or square pieces out of the black felt for the eyes and mouth. Attach these pieces to the top section of the snowman with hot glue.
Cut a two inch wide strip of fabric from the orange felt. Roll it up like a tube to create the “carrot” nose. Add a drop of hot glue to one end and insert in the mesh ribbon to stick out like a nose.
Also use the hot glue gun to attach the sticks to the bottom half of the snowman section.
Put the hot on the snowman – secure with more hot glue if needed – and wrap a section of the red burlap ribbon around his neck as a scarf. You can also use a scarf for this part if you have one you like better.

And there you have it, a very easy DIY project that should only take about an hour to make.
I think he is cute and I may keep him up all winter.
