Hi -- Here's another ornament I made recently. I think he's so cute - he's a snowman sitter. -- Michele

Oh how cute!! Did you make the hat too??? And how did you attach the arms and legs?
I was watching the lady (Becky Meverden? I think?) on Carol Duvall this week. She made a snowman on an ornament and added a sprig of holly. I couldn't understand how she did it. (Couldn't see, actually; it was so small!) I tried making them all pointy once which was not easy. And which reminded me I DON'T want to do miniatures! LOL!

Hi -- Thanks. Yes, I made the hat - its very easy -- just make the top part, then make a snake and flatten it for the brim, wrap it around and shape it. I attached the arms using black yarn which was glued in after baking. I added the holes before baking. Sometimes those tiny pieces make my eyes blurry -- the holly is done like the leaf, but just pinch in a few points. -- Michele
