Nose job

Since I had all the stuff out from making the sock gnomes, I thought I would make some more of the sock snowmen.

I repeated last years version of using an orange toothpick for the nose but for some reason I just didn't like it this year. The nose is just way too skinny.


I decided that this little cutie needed a nose job. But I couldn't think of what to use instead. Then it hit me. I had scraps of orange felt and some orange embroidery floss. I decided to see if I could make something that might slightly resemble a carrot. I rolled a small square of felt into a sort of cone shape and then wrapped it with some floss to hold it. Then I made a little knot and slid it over the toothpick that was already there.

I think this snowman looks much better now with his brand new nose.


After I got done getting the pictures ready for this post I did a little playing.

  1. I like both noses! I do prefer the bigger felt carrot you made. Such a cute snowman and the edit is fun. Would make a great Christmas card.

  2. Now see, that's why you are the creative one. So much better than just a little toothpick! And while he is definitely adorable I still prefer my penguin. Usually he sits on a bookshelf in my office but I have moved him to the living room as a little seasonal decoration. I LOVE my little penguin...
