This little snowman is based on a Santa ornament that I made a couple of weeks ago. I thought it would be fun to make a few different ornaments that were a similar size and shape and the shape, a smaller ball on top of a bigger ball, immediately made me think of a snowman so I decided that needed to be the next ornament I made. The little stuffed snowman is about 4 inches tall. The head and body are crocheted in one piece and the hat, scarf, and arms are crocheted separately and sewn on. The face is stitched on with yarn and small buttons are added to the front of the belly.
It is a pretty quick crochet project thanks to the small size and it will be a cute little addition to your Christmas tree.
