A Snowball Fight
February 12th, 2013 posted by FamilyCorner Staff
Create this cute winter pal with your mismatched children’s gloves. Much like our Snow Folks , all you will need is gloves, wooden balls, and lots of imagination.
You will need
cotton batting 11/4″ diameter
mismatched infant or child’s sock
small white pom poms
scrap material for scarf silk
florals (holiday sprigs, berries, flowers, pine, etc.)
tiny black plastic eyes or black acrylic paint
If you make this project
What you do
First, tuck the thumb inside the glove. Fill the glove with cotton batting, be sure to fill remaining four fingers without over stuffing. Cut a scrap piece of material for scarf and gently tie around the glove where the ribbing of the cuff meets the plain material of the glove (end of the cuff). (When tying scarf, point the scarf material toward the thumb area to cover the area where it was tucked inside. Fold down cuff to cover scarf and form a turtle neck. Hot glue on wooden ball to top of turned down cuff.
Glue on tiny plastic eyes or paint on with black acrylic paint. Use black marker for mouth. Gently dot on lipstick for cheeks by applying first to your finger and then dotting onto face. Glue a stem of holiday florals or greenery behind body onthe side where thumb is tucked in. Thiswill help to hide the tucked inthumb.
To make the hat, simply fit the cuff of the sock onto head and roll up the edge of the cuff to form the hat brim. Then trim the end of the sock off and fringe with scissors. Add a small amount of cotton batting inside hat and tie off with gold cord. Using the first and fourth finger of the glove, pull them to the front of the body and glue together with hot glue, hold in place until secure. Add a pile of white pom poms for snowballs, one at a time, gluing each one in place. Don’t miss our Adorable Snow Folks fashioned from children’s mittens!
