Hi everyone, and welcome to the Handmade Holiday Blog Hop! Today I’m going to be sharing a quick and easy snowman home decor project using Therm O Web Stitchn’Sew™ interfacing and adhesives. Let’s take a look.

To begin, find an unused desk frame and remove the glass. My frame is 4×6 and was a super steal for only 99 cents at the thrift store. Then gather your supplies.
Therm O Web Stitchn’Sew™ Interfacing is known mostly for adding stability behind fabrics, but I love using it for lots of projects requiring fleece or felt. And because I am fond of primitive, shabby chic crafts, I like to give my interfacing a good soak in some coffee or tea before I get started. Here you can see the difference between the natural interfacing, and the piece I’ve stained in a coffee bath.
Die cut or hand cut a large circle from the interfacing to use for the snowman’s head. I tried out a variety of round household objects until I found a size I liked for my frame. If using a template shape, simply trace around it with pencil, and then cut it out. We won’t be using the entire circle, so I put my circle container slightly off the edge to conserve fabric.
Hand stitch a mouth using 4 strands of black embroidery floss. Stitch on two black buttons for the eyes. Apply pink chalk pastel to the cheek area using a cotton ball. Hand cut a wavy carrot nose from a scrap of orange felt. Set aside the nose for now.
The snowman head can be inserted into the frame as is, or can be adhered to a cardstock backing for added durability. Trace your circle template onto a scrap of cardstock, and cut it out. Coat the cardstock with Therm O Web Super Stik Glue Stick, and apply the snowman face on top.
The Super Stik Glue Stick is sewable, so go ahead and machine stitch around the edge of the snowman head, if desired.
For a super strong hold, adhere the snowman to the background paper using Therm O Web SuperTape.
Adhere the carrot nose with Fabric Fuse Glue.
Add a die cut sentiment banner to the top right corner using SuperTape for a strong hold.
Pop the snowman panel into the frame. Add a few final sequins for embellishment, adhered with Fabric Fuse Glue.
