easy- diy-Snowman- Wreath

 

How to:

I painted the eyes first so that they could dry.

I drew a carrot out of felt, sewed together and then stuffed. I then set this aside.

I took 2 wreath forms and put the smaller one inside the larger one then zip tied on 4 sides so they were tight.

 

easy- diy-Snowman- Wreath

 

I cut the mesh into 9 or 10 inch pieces. I did one roll at a time. When done cutting I took one piece and lay flat in front of me. I gathered in the center by walking my finger up from bottom. I used the pipe cleaner to tie and attach to form>

I started and went around in a circle on out side first then worked my way in. I attached face and hat with hot glue gun.

I’m sorry but I drew the mouth and cut it out, without using a pattern. You can decorate the hat any way you want and attach with glue.

Tada done!

  1. Peggy– I can’t seem to decide on what size hat you used for the snowman. Hobby Lobby has various sizes online as do other sites. Did you use craft foam or felt for the hat. What size did you use. About how many inches in total is the edge of the left side of brim to the edge of the right side of the brim?

  2. Wendy

    Did anyone ever find a template for the nose and mouth?

  3. Betty

    Peggy Bond THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful and beautiful showman project. I have been looking for a year now for the supplies and finally have everything I need. I will be making it this year thanks to your kindness in showing us a video. Having a rough time with the shape of the nose and mouth and wish you had a pattern to share as at 80 I don’t think I will ever be a drawer. Guess I will make it work somehow. Do you have any other projects that you are willing to share. As I see that you said that you were giving lessons somewhere.

    I know some people are nasty and hurt your feelings.. . .but I for one appreciate your kindness and talent.

  4. Peggy,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to do the video on the snowman wreath. It was very easy to follow. You made a hero out of me when I delivered one each to my two daughters.
    You made me and my family very happy.
    God bless you and your family!
    Merry Christmas Peggy!
    Carol

  5. Natalie

    Thank you for sharing your snowman with us, I hope I can make mine look like yours!
    It was very helpful to me!!

    Happy Holidays to you and your family!
    Natalie

  6. Patti

    Thanks for the idea! Four of us made one this weekend. It took about 6 hours. Over two days. Phew! Came out very cute! Made them using 18 and 12 inch frames. Saw your video after I bought supplies. That may be why it took a little longer. Although cutting the mesh and twisting the pipe cleaners took a while as well.

  7. Cindy

    Peggy bond YOU ROCK!!!! I just watched your video on the snowman wreath and can’t wait to make it! Thanks so much for making the video ……..so much easier to see it put together. Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing more projects. The snowman wreath is breathtakingly beautiful!

  8. SYLVIA T LABRIOLA

    Hi Peggy this snowman looked so great. So I just finished making one today.
    Thanks for the directions. It worked out so easy.I love it. You did a really great job in
    showing us how easy it is to make.

    1. Debbie Jolly

      Could someone please provide the measurements for the mouth and nose? Making one this week.

  9. charlene

    Hi Peggy. this snowman wreath is adorable!! Is there a possibility to get patterns for your nose and mouth that you made!. Love the way that you made them

  10. Dawn

    How long is the mouth? Have an artist friend that would do much better than me but don’t know how big to make it…..thx!

    Dawn

  11. Love this snowman wreath!! Made one myself

  12. Anne McCormack

    Just want to say THANK YOU…he is gorgeous….

  13. Mary Matty

    Peggy great job!! Just love it!!!

  14. Cindy

    Zip ties can also be found at Hobby Lobby in the craft section by the doll houses.
    You now have one stop for everything! I enjoyed your tutorials , thank you for your time doing this for us. I hope to make one real soon.

  15. janelle

    I made the snowman n turned out wonderful. Question…Did u cut out the mouth with sizzors? It’s real rough. or maybe that doesn’t really matter. I tryed a razor but that did make it a little smoother but dangerous. Any suggestions?

    1. Peggy Bond

      Thick poster board can be lightly sanded on edges. Will smooth out.

  16. Elizabeth Lacumsky

    when putting the mesh on the wire do you connect the top 2 wires or one wire, this is so beautiful can’t wait to start mine thanks so much 🙂
    Elizabeth

  17. Kim

    Peggy loved it I was afraid to do one but now I am not thanks

  18. Janet

    I also wanted to know what size the hat is. I can only fine 5 inch hats. This is turning out harder that I expected.

  19. Janet

    Is there any possible way to have a copy of the mouth sent or posted to be printed out. I can not get the mouth correct.
    🙁

  20. Sherry short

    More info on the eyes! What did you use markers or paint pens??

    1. Kim Skattebo

      I used a foam board…..much easier than painting

  21. Stacy

    What is the stuff Peggy used on the snowman hat / carrot that looks like snow?

  22. Heather

    Is there a trick to painting the eyes? I do not have very steady hands, so the easiest way possible would be greatly appreciated

    1. Peggy

      Just one wire.

  23. Mary

    About how much does it cost to make a snowman wreath?

    1. Hi Mary the cost will vary depending where you are but there arent a lot of materials needed for this project.. apart from the mesh, pipe cleaners and wreath forms 🙂

    2. Wendy

      Mary, I went to Hobby Lobby this evening and purchased 2 wreath forms, 1 piece of orange felt, pipe cleaners, and a foam hat. I purchased 21 inch deco mesh because they didn’t have 10 inch in the Christmas section and Christmas items were 40% off. I spent less than 25.00. I still have to get a few more things but I figured I’d make sure I did the other first, lol.

  24. Gracie Lanzillotti

    Love your designs please keep them coming.

  25. Janice Hines

    These are all so wonderful, thank you for shairing!

  26. Shehila

    what size of wreaths did you use?

    1. Misty

      She tells you in the video above 🙂

  27. karen

    Hi Peggy, question for you. I finished the outside ring, skipped one, started the second ring. I can see the green wreath form inbetween. Will that fill in as you continue or maybe it needs more mesh? I have 10 pieces each section on the first ring. Thank you

    1. Eva

      Did you finish your wreath? Can you still see the green?

  28. karen

    Awesome tutorial, I just did the first ring tonight. Hope I can find a hat. Thank you for taking the time to do this.

  29. Monica

    What are dimensions of completed snowman wreath please?

    Thank you,

  30. Kristen Lewis

    Thank you so much for posting the videos for the snowman wreath! I finished one today and I’m in love!

  31. Sharon

    Peggy, I am so excited to get started making this adorable wreath! I loved the videos! I belong to an auxiliary that raises money to send kids that have been burned to a special camp, each campership is $750 and we send 3-4 kids every summer, so I will make them for the auction. Which size wood ovals did you use? There are so many. Thank you sooo much for this adorable project. I have signed up for your newsletter and can’t wait for them to be posted. Maybe there will be more projects to be made for the auction.

  32. Lisa Badeau

    Yesterday, 5 of us made this wreath. They came out awesome!!! Thank you for the instructions.

  33. Christine

    I just made this snowman…..got my mesh at Michaels…..35 feet on each roll & I did use all of the rolls. I found HUGE wiggily eyes at Michaels & used them. I found a black felt hat at Target in the $ section. I didn’t use a bow on the hat & it looks fine. I gloed the nose together & then stuffed it. I used 3 round circles cut from heavy card stock for the mouth….to look like coal I have used Aleene’s Super thick Tacky Glue in a jar for many projects & it worked fine for glueing the nose together. After I was done I put some LED (bright white….took the caps off) lights into the back. I really wish I could upload a picture….he looks so cool !.

  34. Elizabeth

    I love this. I wish I had seen this when I was doing my decor this year. My theme this year happens to be snowmen and snowflakes, but I will keep this for next year.

  35. Laura

    Thank you so much for the wonderful wreath idea. I had a couple of friends over last night and we had a blast making this adorable snow man. I wish I could post a picture of ours.. Thank you again ❤👍

  36. Karen

    Please, please tell me where to find the white deco mesh…we have checked everywhere.

    1. Peggy Bond

      Unfortunately they are sold out everywhere.

      1. Barbara

        I found some at Walmart in the Christmas isle. 36 ft decorative fabric comes in 2 roll packs. I’m just starting on the wreath so I’ll have to see if this works the same.

  37. JoAnna Pacilio

    Hi Peggy,

    The wreath is so cute and is just what I’m looking for! Have you ever thought about selling them? I am very interested and would love to buy one!! If not I will just have to get the supplies and watch your videos 🙂

    Happy Holidays !

  38. Lisa

    I started making this but not sure on how many you tie per section? Do you fill it tight from one point to the other then go to the next section etc. If so I think the 3 rolls won’t be enough? Or do I put a few in each section then skip down two rows?! Also do I tie pipe cleaner around the two wire rings in rows or just very top (single) rows. Hope I’ve explained it, sorry a little confused. Love this!!!

  39. Jerri

    Your wreath is beautiful. I truly appreciate you doing the tutorial. I will be making this in the future. Please don’t get discourage, I would love you to share other great ideas. Thank you again.

  40. Anne-Marie

    Well done. This is awesome..working on it now. Can’t wait until it is finished. Your instructions are easy to follow. Thanks so much!!

  41. Kay

    I just made this wreath for my 88 year old Mother who lives in an assisted living facility. It turned out really good and Mom and her friends love Mr Snowman. Thanks

  42. Brenda

    How many bags of pipe cleaners did you use??

    1. Peggy Bond

      I buy a jumbo bag.

      1. Deb L

        What kind of glue did you use for the nose? Thanks

      2. Anita R

        Dollar Tree has zip ties. Thanks again for sharing!!

  43. Amy

    I love this! What a lovely wreath! Thank you for sharing this.

  44. Mandy

    I cant find the deco mesh 10 inch any where here. There is a ton of tulle but no 10 inch deco. I have seen the 21 inch kind but ive seen people say it freys. Can u use tull in place of the mesh or no. Any other ideas? Thanls for the pattern its the cuttest thing ever

    1. Jocelyn

      I used the 21 “. I found a video on YouTube showing you how to use it. Basically you cut your 10” piece then fold the cut ends in so they meet. Then fold the entire piece in half, then at the half way mark again…is where you scrunch the piece together and attach you pipe cleaner. Hope this makes sense. 🙂 (look on youtube for inscructions)

      1. Mandy

        Thank u im trying it now

    2. Marci

      I found it at Big Lots.

    3. Kelli

      Yes it does fray wish I would of known this before I did mine!!!

  45. Will it stop fraying? I had to get 21 inch roll and 18″ & 12″ rings. Figured he would just be bigger. Now scared that I wasted money and about to waste this time doing it wrong. 😞

    1. Peggy Bond

      When you cut down 21 inch it frays bad, I’ve never done so can’t really tell you if it will work,. I wish you luck.

      1. Debbie

        When I watched your instruction video it ended just as you started to decorate the snowman’s hat, where can I view the whole video?

        1. Debbie

          Never mind found it, thank you for sharing such a wonderful wreath! I love it.

      2. Lisa

        Where did you by the top hats?

    2. Jocelyn

      I could only find the 12 inch ring, I then purchased “stem wire ” to make a X in the middle of the wire wreath. I used the stem wire to attach my pieces too. 🙂

    3. Sheila

      Dont cut 21 inch down middle, roll it up like 10 inch, then double that,

    4. Anne-Marie

      Better to fold the 21″, cutting it will give you another raw edge and will continue to fray. Found that out the hard way. If you check Trendy Tree website, they show you how to use the 21″ to make a ruffle wreath.

  46. Trisha Sanner

    I’m going to make him.. It looks easy enough.. love snowmen.

  47. Angel

    Can I use a 6 inch and a 12 inch wreath ? I can’t find a 8 inch .. Thank you .

    1. Peggy Bond

      Yes use whatever you can find!

  48. Neena

    Anyone know if her Deco mesh had a sparkle to it. It seemed to shine. I like that look and most of the deco mesh I’ve seen is flat white. Thanks

    1. Peggy Bond

      Yes, it had a sparkle, but at this point, if you can find any 10 inch I’d use it..

      1. ginger

        Spray face when done with glitter glue for shine before adding eyes/nose/mouth. never know the difference.

  49. Cindy

    Thanks for taking the time to share this cute snowman. Very creative

  50. Donna

    I cannot find the deco mesh in 10″ size…only 20″ and then I end up having to cut it and it frays really bad, making a big mess. Any suggestions as to where to find the 10″ rolls? I”ve checked at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s and JoAnnes…no luck. Thank you. Love the snowman!

    1. Peggy Bond

      I’m sorry, but because he went viral, it seems to be sold out everywhere. I wish I could help.

      1. Mandy

        I cant find the ten inch deco mesh anywhere can u use tule or something else?

        1. Megan S

          I couldn’t find 10″ deco mesh, but I was able to find 12″ iridescent white decomesh at Michaels. I am currently making the wreath right now (taking a break right now…lol) and the 12″ seems to be working pretty well. I just cant get it to stop fraying as I bunch it up.

    2. Stacy Ellis

      I use craftoutlet.com They still have the plain white, but the snowflake white is much prettier.

    3. I got mine at walmart

      1. The mesh at walmart

  51. Thelene

    I love the Snowman wreath! Thank you for sharing and the tutorial. I have no issues with it. Have purchased all of my supplies except the 10″ deco mesh. I can’t find it anywhere. Had my husband go 20 miles out of the way to a 2nd Hobby Lobby where they said they would hold 3 of the 10″ rolls. When he got there they were the 21″ rolls and they told him to have me cut them in half. I told him no, they would fray. Can’t find them online either. Suggestions?? Thanks!

    1. Anita R

      I used the 5 1/2 and it seems to be working great!

      1. Joanne

        With using the 5″ do you still cut 10 inch pieces?

  52. susie

    I love the wreath, I have to make 2 for my daughters, started one just having trouble with making the nose and doing the eyes, any chance of posting a way of getting the pattern for the eyes and nose to look like yours? Thanks!

  53. Joanne Martin

    Hi Peggy,
    Could you please get in touch with me? I really want to chat with you about your amazing wreath. I have left you my e-mail address above. Thx so much. Joanne Martin.

    1. Peggy Bond

      Hi Joanne, I can see no email left.

  54. DeeAnna Fox

    Thank you so much. I’m all about doing crafty presents this year and this is so darn cute. Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful holiday!!

  55. Rita watrach

    Such a cute idea, you know you have, but I JUST CANT FIND THE 8 INCH WIRE FRAME, MINE IS COMING OUT REALLY NICE AND I WRAPPED THE PIPECLEANER LEGS AROUND THE WIRE LIKE COILED MONKEY TAILS, AND ITS NICE AND SMOOTH…BUT THE MIDDLE OF THE WREATH IS EMPTY, because I can’t find the 8 inch frame

    1. katie

      i used pipe cleaners and made a cross (more like a target) in the middle of the frame. make sure it’s tight. then used more pipe cleaners along the sections of the cross to attach the mesh to

    2. Darlene

      A suggestion for the center- I had used a cookie cooling rack in my center (2/$! Dollar Tree) I used pipe cleaners to attach it. It worked out great. Saw the idea on another tutorial where someone made a snowman

      1. Peggy Bond

        Great idea.

  56. Is there a reason you start on the outside ring and not in the center?

    1. Anne-Marie

      Wrapping from the outside in gives you better indication of exactly how much fill you have to do in the center of the wreath. I bulked up the outside and next row in, as Peggy illustrated, and by the time I got to the middle, I only had to add 4-5 pieces.

  57. Dee

    Thank you very much for taking the time to share the awesome videos and instructions regarding how you made your snowman wreath, Peggy. I greatly appreciate the selfless giving of your time & energy in order to share your design with others. It is adorable & I am excited to get started on making one! Thank you for inspiring me. Blessings, Dee

  58. Krista

    Thank you so much!! The video helped a ton! Going to get my supplies today and getting started! My house is Snowman themed! He is gonna make a great addition, I may even make him a girl😁

  59. Roganna

    Thank you so much for the demo, I can’t wait to make mine!

  60. Shannon Keefe

    Thanks so much for sharing this!!! I am not crafty at all, but have followed your instructions and am well on my way to finishing. Can’t wait to make a few for family and friends!!!!

  61. Kelley

    I was just wondering if I was to just buy the mesh fro the fabric store (off the bolt) about how many yards would I need?

    1. Felicia

      She said 3 10″×30′ rolls so you need 90 feet.

    2. Peggy Bond

      That’s tulle not deco mesh.

      1. Pam

        How do you keep the mesh from fraying apart? Do you recommend spraying adhesive on it before adding the eyes etc? As I’m putting mine together I find a need to keep trimming the treads that are “unweaving”. Thanks!

        1. Peggy Bond

          It will stop doing that when your done no need to do anything to it. It will be fine

  62. Wow such a clever idea. My family would adore to have one of these to hang. Thanks for linking up with #CreateMakeShare.

  63. I see the material cost is around $25. How much do you sell them for?

      1. Rita watrach

        Grill designs, I can’t find the 8 inch frame at any craft store or nursery, do you know where else I could look? Maybe online?

        1. Donna

          Had to order mine online …No one had them

        2. Paige

          I’ve read that you can use foam tubing from home improvement stores in place of wreath forms, and that it’s puch cheaper. Just duct tape the ends together. Or you could use a pool noodle and cut it to size.

  64. Lisa Jenrette

    Thank you for the great video. The only question I have is about how long is your nose template? I don’t sew, but did you make two pieces of your template and sew them together or did you make one and sew that? Do you have approximate dimensions for the template? Thank you so much. I just don’t want a nose that is too short.

    Thanks,
    Lisa

    1. Lisa Jenrette

      I watched the video for a third time and did see the dimensions. I’m so sorry to bother you.

  65. Diane

    Thank you for sharing your creative snowman wreath idea and taking the time to re-create the video … I thought you explained it well and can’t wait to purchase the supplies and get started making one for myself – Happy Holidays and, again, thank you for sharing!

  66. Betty

    Beautiful job. Thank you for sharing. As a SS it is hard to take classes when our funds are limited. Too bad others don’t appreciate your thoughtfulness in sharing your talents. .

    The video is AWESOME! I am a visual person and the video sure helped. I will be making this with my grandchildren.. I hope I will be able to find more of your ideas and projects.. Do you have a website?.

    1. Peggy Bond

      You are soo welcome. I enjoy creating things.

      1. Kristi

        Do you have a printable pattern for your snowman mouth

  67. Carrie

    Love this Snowman Wreath. Thanks for the instructions. One question…do you finish the back of the wreath at all or are all the pipe cleaners left exposed?
    Thanks

    1. Peggy Bond

      Just leave them.

  68. Thsnks so much for posting! I am NOT handy but definately have to try this…he is so cute. I am in the Midwest and cannot get the white deco mesh. It is white metallic…I think that should b ok…next…can only get the deco meshin 5.5 , all u DIY ‘s. ..should I cut it still in the 9 ,10 inches? Thanks for your input in advance!!!

    1. One more ? Is it poly deco mesh? Sorry I am anal I need it spelled out for me!! Lol t u

      1. What color white did u use…I am looking to order it online, can’t get it here

        1. Peggy Bond

          You can do any whit, I think this was white metallic

    2. Peggy Bond

      It it poly, yes what ever the size make your pieces 10 inches.

      1. Paula

        I LOVE your wreath and your instructions are wonderful!!! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us – I greatly appreciate it and can’t wait to make one!!! (When my family sees it – there may be more than one made!!!) Merry Christmas!!!

  69. Whitney

    How many pieces of mesh per section on the outside of the wreath did y’all do? 6? 10? 13?

    1. Peggy Bond

      At least one whole roll

  70. Patricia Bryant

    I’m having trouble finding 10′ mesh. I can find 21″ easily. Is it possible to use the 21′ and cut it in half lengthwise and get the same effect.

    1. Peggy Bond

      The proble with cutting down 21 in is it frays very badly, have you tried to order online?

      1. Patricia

        Thank you Peggy for responding to my first email about cutting the mesh in half. Luckily I found the 10in at another hobby lobby. I am not crafty at all but have gotten most of him done. I’m now trying to do his face. I like several others would like more detail on your patter for nose and mouth. Thank you so much. I have really enjoyed working on this

  71. Teresa

    Thank you so much for your step by step video. It was very informative, I am a show me person so that helps me a lot. Hope to make these for my family. I know they will love them.

  72. Helpful info. Lucky me I found your site by chance, and I’m stunned why this coincidence didn’t happened in advance! I bookmarked it.|

  73. Kathie

    Where did you find the black hat?

    1. Please watch the video – all the answers are in there.

      1. Sara

        Not everyone has Wi-Fi access to watch the video with.

        1. Renée Adili

          I cut the 21″ with a serated bread knife. All is good! 🙂
          Hat is @ hobby lobby, $4.99 – 50% today

        2. Tami

          Try a consignment store.

    2. I got it at a Hobby Lobby where they have different hats not in the Xmas stuff. Where are you getting the 10in white deco mesh….I have been every where in S. California and can not get it.

      1. Rita watrach

        Pam Dotson, I found mine in the floral section at hobby lobby, they have all colors there including the white I bought has irredescent running through it, and I just started working on it and it’s beautiful, they also have a gingerbread color I think I’m going to make a gingerbread wreath next,, got the wreath wire there too

      2. Rita watrach

        Pam hope you found the deco mesh where I told you….I found it in their floral section, not by the fabric…but when I bought the wire frames I bout what I thought was the 8 and 12 but it was 12 and 16, so now I’m having trouble finding the 8 inch 😁 But it is very pretty so far…

  74. Susie

    THANK YOU the video was very helpful

  75. Louise

    He is so stinkin’ cute! Thank you so much for the tutorial!

  76. Lois

    I just love this wreath!! You did a great job making the video..you explained it step by step very clearly!! The question I have is have you ever added lights, the type that are very small.

    1. Peggy Bond

      I have just use pipe cleaner to attach batteries to back.

        How many lights did you add to your wreath?

        1. Kari Hill

          And did you add it on as you are putting on the deco mesh or after you were done?

  77. janet

    do you have the pattern od the face .We can print out

    1. I think Peggy has shared quite a lot in the video for free considering she usually charges for her classes. There is no righter wrong to drawing this face – just imagination 🙂

  78. Tonya

    I would like to thank you for taking the time to show us in your tutorial video you’ve made, also for your hubby (I’m assuming) that recorded it. You did a great job explaining everything, if only some people would watch and listen to what you say in the video they wouldn’t be so quick to jump at you or ask stupid questions that you’ve clearly explained already. Just because you didn’t say “attach the nose….” in a specific way alone, you did state that you hot glued the FACE on and I would imagine that includes the nose, after all it is a part of the FACE. SMH, some people…..anyway, I love this snowman and plan to make a few of them (one for myself of course). Would love to see some of your other projects that you make, your very talented. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

  79. Mitch

    How much total cost is in this? Do you have the nose and mouth patterns so we can print out?

    1. Peggy Bond

      I’m Serra I free handed the nose and mouth, it cost about 25.00 to make.

  80. Michele

    Where do you buy the hat?

    1. Karen Britland

      I WENT ON LINE TO HOBBY LOBBY.

  81. Love your snowman wreath! I made one simlar to yours last year. I’m gonna try making one the way you made yours this year. Love it! And yes I am a snowman freak also! 🙂

    1. Cheryl

      Thank you so much. I am so much a visual learner and your videos helped me very much. I am excited to attempt this. Thank you again.

  82. Tammy

    I love your snowman! Thank you sooo much for sharing your diy project with wonderful directions! I will be making one for myself asap!

  83. Could you tell me what size hat? and how many & what length pipe cleaners. Thank you so much I will definitely be making one of these for myself. You did a great job.

    1. Linda please watch both videos and you will be able to answer all your above questions. Thank you

      Grillo Designs

  84. Anna

    Love the snowman but your part 1 video cut off before you made the bow for the hat. Do you have a video on how to make the bow? Don’t know what type of ribbon or how much ribbon to use and I don’t know how to make a bow like yours. I figured out the strip part along the rim of the hat. Thanks

  85. Anna

    Peggy, I’m in love with you wreath. Do you sell them?

    PS…your video was great!!!!

  86. Ronda

    This is the cutest wreath and I am so glad you made the video to show us what to do. I think I might try to make a full size snowman! Wish me luck 🙂

  87. Betty

    I love love this . Going out on Friday for supplies. Super cute.
    Thanks for sharing
    Betty

  88. Becky Goode

    Gorgeous! Do you make these and sell? Price not a problem. Have arthritis in hands and can’t make one. Thank you for your time and have a Happy Holidays. It can even wait until after the holidays because I am sure that you are busy.

  89. Lisa

    He is adorable, Peggy. I appreciate you sharing your idea with us. Thanks Lisa

  90. I do trust all of the ideas you have introduced for your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.|

  91. Love it! Thank you so much, I will be making this for my home this Christmas. So thoughtful of you to do this video. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving day.

  92. I am in fact delighted to glance at this website posts which contains lots of helpful facts, thanks for providing such data.|

  93. Jeanne

    I love love love this and have been scrambling around to find the 10″ deco mesh in white with no success. I bought 21 in thinking I could cut it in half but I see that it frays easily. I am still going to make it using the 21 in and see how it comes out. Thank you for the tutorial though. It was very helpful! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

    1. Jeanette

      Did you use the 21″ Deco mesh. I could not find the 10″ either so bought the 21″ but now I am wondering if it going to be worth all the work to cut the 21″ or should I order the 10″ online and return the 21″ because of the fraying. Just curious? Thanks.

      1. Sheri Weeks

        I placed clear tape down the center of the 21″ mesh, then cut the mesh. It did not fray.

  94. Cindy Minnick

    This is awesome ..thank you so much for taking the time to make a video

  95. Cindi

    Peggy, Thank you so much for Sharing this despite the nasty people!! I am so sorry for the ignorant slobs that were so harsh because they video cut off. I laughed that if they couldn’t figure it out they should be doing DIY. I’m going to attempt this and hang it in my classroom then take it home to enjoy over Christmas break. Happy Thanksgiving Peggy and a very Blessed Christmas to you and your family from someone who appreciates you in Colorado.

    1. Priscilla

      I agree with you 100%! Thank you Peggy!

  96. Kenzie

    TIP – if you lay all 3 rolls of mesh down together on a cutting mat, you can use a rotary cutter to cut all 3 layers at once. Saves a ton of time and also helps you make straight & exact cuts.

  97. Sandra

    Love this wreath. Can’t wait to go out and buy what’s need to make this!
    Thank you.
    Sandra D

  98. Melanie

    I can’t wait to make him this weekend….Glad I got to see the whole video….didn’t want to make any mistakes….Thank you Peggy….

  99. Stephanie

    I too LOVE snowmen! I normally don’t particular care for wreaths made with the mesh, but I SO LOVE YOUR SNOWMAN! And was so excited you did a video tutorial as I didn’t understand the scrunching of the mesh between the fingers, I do now. Amazing, I can’t wait to make my very own.

  100. Elizabeth Cunningham

    Awesome will certainly be making this snowman.

  101. Tammy

    Just awesome! Thank you for this idea and this video! I think you did great!!

  102. Absolutely adorable! Thank you for sharing!

  103. Chelle Fleenor

    I know you said to start on the outer part of the wreath form and then come 2 down. Whar number of the wreath form is after the second down from the outer? Thank you and what an awesome job you have done.

    1. Peggy Bond

      Just keep moving toward center. At is point your only filling in. To make center full.

  104. Karen Pierson

    Loved the wreath and great video. Very easy to understand. Thank you so much. Will make great old fashioned Christmas gifts.

  105. Barbie

    Thank you so much for making the video I think you did a fabulous job on the video!! I can’t wait to make it you are so talented!! 🙂

  106. Lynell

    Thank you for sharing this wreath with us and for taking the time to do the videos. I do need clarification about one thing, not because you didn’t say, but because I want to be sure I understood correctly.
    After completing the first, outer row of deco mesh, you said to go 2 rings for the next row of mesh. Are we to skip 2 rings and begin next row of mesh on 3rd ring? or skip 1 row and begin new row of mesh on 2nd ring from previous row?
    Thank you again.

    1. Peggy Bond

      Skip to 3r row. It really doesn’t matter , just fill in to make him full. Have fun!!

  107. Lareene

    I thousands of course’s with tool in them. The easiest way to cut tooL cut yourself a piece of cardboard. Then wrap it many many times with the tool cut off each side and they’re all done it all done. do it again wrap it cut off each side and you’ve got more tool all done that way you don’t have to guesstimate waste your time or anything. It’s so much easier this way just keep rappin cutting and wrapping and cutting and they’ll be all done in a minute or two.

    1. Peggy Bond

      I have don that before. But thank you.

      1. Do you know approximately the cost of one? Please send instant message to send Sandy Zainey. I have a sea lion part of my pic. Thank you so much! Luv it

    2. Heather

      This is a wonderful idea! Thank you for sharing!!

  108. Would you ever think of making and selling them? I would buy one for sure. Being disable it’s hard to go to the store to get the supplies I would need.

  109. Debra

    Thanks for doing the videos. it helps me to see how to do the steps.

  110. Nikki

    I love the reef could you tell me what size ribbon you used on the hat

  111. Jodee Guilliams

    I love the snowman. I collect them and I plan to have mine made by the time the collection comes out in January. You have inspired me. My imagination is dreaming up lots of variations for more holidays. I see a witch in my future. THANK YOU for sharing.

  112. this is a perfect craft to do for thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing !

  113. Linda McNulty

    Absolutely love him! Awesome tutorial! You made it look so easy that I might just have to try it! Thank you for sharing!

  114. Angela Root

    About how much does it cost to make?

    1. Peggy Bond

      You can do for around 25.00

  115. As soon as you said that your Mom is a snowman finatic, I literally said, “Yup! Me too!” Thank you so much for sharing this idea and walking us through the proccess. This look super simple ♡

  116. Karen

    Thank you so much! The second video ends before completion. How do you attach the hat and carrot?

    1. Hi Karen,

      It says in the written instructions that she used hot glue to attach the face and hat. Hope this helps 🙂

    2. Peggy Bond

      Mine played all the way though.

      1. Mellissa

        How much would you charge me to make me one and send it to me. I tried to make it and it did not turn out right please let me know

  117. Thank you this is really adorable. Where do you do these classes????

    1. Peggy Bond

      Hobby lobby and in home. Southern Ca!

  118. Bernice

    Love this this snowman wreath I am going to try to make him! We don’t have a hobby store though just hope I can find a hat, what does everyone think of a girly type hat?

    1. I love the idea of a girly hat, it will just be a Mrs.. Frosty the snowman, lol. Post pics. when you finish if you don’t mind. Oh and maybe you can try going to a goodwill or Salvation Army store to find a similar hat.

  119. Stacy

    This is the cutest thing ever! I’m hoping from your instructions, video, and your follow up answers I can replicate your work. Thanks so much for sharing! Hobby lobby, here I come.

  120. Tiffany

    How do you place the mesh on the metal of the wreath. Form wise. I’d hate to mess up. Your video just went to the twisting of the pipe cleaners

  121. Shelia Oliver

    Thank you Peggt. Your snowman is precious! Plz don’t stop sharing. Happy Zthanksgiving.

  122. Joyce

    Thanks for your video. I have everything except the hat. Going to start cutting now! I love the snowman, he’s going to match my snowman dishes. Thanks again!

  123. Kris Vencel

    Adorable snowman wreath! Such a clever idea! Thank you so much for sharing it!

  124. Jetlyn

    The video stops way too soon. Is there more of it somewhere?

  125. So I am ready to try this but how does the middle fill in ?

    1. Peggy Bond

      It really does trust me.

  126. I love you wreath, is there just one piece of mesh to each tie? And how many did you put on each ring. Thanks

  127. Tina Lopez

    Beautiful wreath but the video cuts off, how do I see the rest of it to finish the wreath?

  128. VIRGINIA

    I LOVE THIS WREATH IT IS AWESOME. PARDON THE CAPS MY KEYBOARD IS STUCK!!!. DO YOU HAVE A VIDEO OF THE COMPLETE PROCESS PLEASE. I AM HOUSEBOUND AND CANNOT TAKE ADDITIONAL CLASSES AND WOULD LOVE TO KNOW HOW TO FINISH THE WREATH,

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS

  129. Tiffany

    I’ve scrolled through most of the comments and I’m not seeing anything ride unless it’s already been deleted. As I watched the video it was also cut off at the pipe cleaner point. These women also said please and thank you as well as complimenting the wreath. It’s adorable. But they were only asking for to see the continuation of it. It’s too cute, we all love it, some of us aren’t crafty enough to know how to finish it ourselves.

    1. anonymous

      The video explains everything. If people would actually listen while they watched they would know what to do. Also people may have said please and thank you but it is still rude too point out things that “might” not have been in the video. Which by the way she didn’t have to do. She could have charged to send instructions. People need to use their brains and figure out somethings on their own. By you posting this comment shows that you belong in the rude category “i scrolled through and haven’t seen anything rude” who are you to judge what people might get offended by? Your post should be deleted. Thank you Peggy for posting the making of this beautiful wreath and i will be making one with my mother as a project to do together!

  130. jackie joynson

    The video cut off before it showed how to put them mesh on the wire. It went off as she gathered her first piece of mesh and twisted the pipe cleaner. How do i get the rest of the video or instructions on how to do it…

  131. Karen

    The video stops after you gather the first piece of mesh. Do you have a part 2 video. Would love to see how to make it. Thanks!

    1. Diane

      I need to see part 2 to finish Snowman

      1. Peggy Bond

        It’s up!

  132. Cristy

    Thank you for sharing! The snowman is super cute and I have lots of leftover white mesh from my sisters wedding – I kept wondering what I could do with it and waalaa I see your post!! Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

  133. Suzanne

    Thank you so much Peggy… I really appreciate your posting the video.. it helped a lot.. Thanks, Suzanne

  134. Pat

    Would like to have seen how you attached the netting to the form.

  135. nancy

    Love this snowman. Thank you so much. And people should read and watch video before asking so many questions. I will be following you for more great ideas. Happy thanksgiving

    1. Robin

      Nancy, were you able to see how it was all put together? I think people have questions because the video quit and did not show all of the steps. Does anyone know if there is a complete video?

  136. Jacki

    the video stops right as she starts making the mesh with the pipe cleaners does anyone have the complete video please and thank you

  137. Bridget

    The video cut off for me right after you gathered the first square and put the pipe cleaner on it.
    now what do you do? Love the wreath

  138. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us. I love the Snowman and look forward to trying to make one. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  139. Tab

    I need to know where I can get a snowman hat ?

    1. Melissa

      How do I attach each piece to the wire wreath?

  140. Kathy

    I love this cute snowman, I hope I can make it as well as you did!! THANKS!!

  141. Val

    Love your snowman. I’m going to make this little guy and was watching the video and it cut off when you started explaining how to do the ruffle and attach it to the ring. Is there anyway possible you can post a continuation of how to make this sweet thing. Thank you for doing the video and sharing your secrets with us. You’re very talented. Val

  142. I love it can wait to try it out! Thank you for the video.

  143. Janet

    So cute..

  144. Lisa

    Peggy what a cute idea. We would like to make it with out kiddos. Can you just explain how you attached the nose? Thank you for posting and please don’t worry about rude comments . We appreciate the ideas 😊

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I’m not sure if you were able to download the second half of the video, if not the written directions states that she just used a hot glue gun to attach the face and hat, this includes the nose. Hope you enjoy making your snowman. 🙂

  145. Marie

    He is sooooooooooooo cute.

    Thank you

  146. Rhonda

    Hey Peggy could you tell me how to attach the nose. Thank you so much. This is my favorite snowman wreath out of all I’ve seen

    1. Hi Rhonda,

      I’m not sure if you were able to download the second half of the video, if not the written directions states that she just used a hot glue gun to attach the face and hat, this includes the nose. Hope you enjoy making your snowman. 🙂

  147. naomi

    It would seem that when someone takes their time to try and explain something of this nature, that people would realize that the person is doing so out of the goodness of their heart… complaining or pointing out short comings are rude…. perhaps some of you could take the time to put some thought into the project and answer your own questions….. after all, someone else figured it out , I bet you can too!! Otherwise if your comments cannot be supportive of the author’s efforts, it would be best to keep your complaints and begging to yourselves! Thanks you Peggy for this beautiful idea and I appreciate your doing so…

    1. Monika

      Thank you for writing this. I was thinking the same thing. There are some really dumb questions on here!

  148. Peggy Bond

    For everyone that has liked this little guy Thank you, that’s what this wonderful site is for. Have a blessed Thanksgiving week!

    1. Anita Tizol

      Is there a specific site you ordered all your supplies for this particular wreath? I would LOVE to make this, but was hoping you got all your supplies at one store/site. Thank you in advance, Anita

      1. Peggy Bond

        Hi Anita, I bought everything at Hobby Lobby. I hope you can find everything you need.

    2. Medina

      Thank you Peggy! And thanks so much for taking the time out to share him with us!

    3. Gina

      This guy is super cute, I wished your video was longer!!!!!

    4. Kris Lorensen

      Peggy Bond….your snowman wreath is really cute and I’d love to be able to see the directions but the video stops shortly after 2 minutes. Do you have another link for FULL instructions?
      Thanks for your time!

    5. Jeannette

      I am so excited to make one of these!! Do you have a follow up video on attaching everything to the wreath frame?

  149. Cheryl Porter

    Peggy, your snowman wreath and instructions are perfect. Thanks so much for sharing, and I hope you will continue to share with us!

    1. Peggy Bond

      After some of the rude comments and snarky people, I just might keep to myself, but thank you,

      1. April

        The video was cut short. would really like to see you do this one.

      2. Love this, but in the video, you do state the size wreaths you used 12in and 8 in. Not sure why people are asking for the size. Please don’t get discouraged, I love it and appreciate your free ideas.

        1. Rita watrach

          Here is another question for you Peggy, sorry, but I have looked at every craft store hobby lobby, Michaels, nurserys, and the smallest they have is 12 inch, no one has the 8 inch and not even a tag on the shelf for it like it doesn’t exist….!!! Your hobby lobby has 8 inch wire circles? Is that inside circle measurement or outer ring measurement? I bought the smallest one they had was 12 and then the next one up was 16, and now the middle I’m afraid is going to be empty and I’ll need more mesh won’t I …? HELP, I CANT FIND THE SMALLER 8INCH WIRE RING, I bought those and zip tied them together and there’s a large hole in the middle…

      3. Peggy, don’t let people get you down!!!!! They just have no life!!! Thank you soooooo much for posting this cute project! My friend and I are going to do it together!!!!

  150. Melanie

    Just love the mid wreath. I know that the deco messy can make a small wreath form into a giant wreath. You just never say what two sizes of the wire wreath you used. Otherwise, very clear.

    Thank you, Melanie

    1. l

      she says 12″ and 8″

  151. Melissa

    When attaching the mesh to the wire rings, which rings did you attach the mesh to? I would not think you would attach it to every single ring.

    1. They gave classes that teach you to make wreaths, the cost is around 40 dollars, maybe you can look around and find one.

  152. Monica Tucker

    I purchased a 12″ wreath frame and then the smaller one is that correct??

  153. Peggy Bond

    I’m sorry but I can’t make video or pictures right noe. I m not making another at this time.

  154. What a superb wreath, wish I had to patience to do such a fabulous project, thank you for the step by step, hugs xxx

  155. jamie

    Love the Snowman! Gotta make one. AWESOME instructions. Thanks for posting!

  156. Wow fab tutorial. Love this x

  157. Helen

    This is so cool, but instructions are not quite detailed enough. Any chance you could post a short video?

  158. Kathi Howrylak

    What size metal frames did you use? Both the same?
    Step by step pics would be awesome for dummies like me!

  159. Are the wreath forms the metal or stryofoam?

    1. Peggy Bond

      The frames are metal!,

  160. I know you’ve had a million questions. Sorry but did you buy hat or make it? If bought, where? That’s the only thing that has me stumped. Really cool idea. You should be proud.

  161. BEVERLEY

    would I be right to say deco mesh is placed widthwise in front of you, gathered from bottom to top at center point then pipecleaner is wrapped around this gathered point, twisted at back to secure then pipecleaner is pushed into wreath? or is it wrapped around form wreath? anyhow I’m planning on trying it, thank you 🙂

  162. Helen

    Sorry but maybe you need to explain how to fix around rim. Also show some of the ways you did it.

    1. Rita watrach

      Helen, I twisted a pipecleaner around each 10 inch square mesh, and then I coiled each little pipe cleaner leg around the ring, like a little monkey tail would be coiled around a tree branch, and it left the back looking really neat and smooth, no poking wires hanging out….I hope that explains it easier…

  163. Laura Barnhouse

    Please give instructions on how to do the ribbon

    1. Peggy Bond

      Attach mesh to metal wreath frame with pipcleaner. The hat was bought at HobbyLobby. Cut in half.

      1. Theresa

        Thanks for the extra information! I am excited to make this wreath for this holiday season, and also wondered how to attach it. Super cute wreath! would love to subscribe to a YouTube channel with more tutorials! Thank you! Greatly appreciated!!!

      2. Lisa Johnson

        “Thank You Peggy” LOVE LOVE LOVE the WREATH!!!!

  164. On your details of how to make your snowman wreath you did not put details of how to put to mesh ribbon around the wire rims? Could you please explain that?? Thanks Sharon

    1. I guess you don’t know how to read then, because it clearly states that you use the pipe cleaners that are used to gather the mesh, to also attach it to the wire wreath. She also states that she starts from the outside and works her way in…and in case you missed it like others have, she attached the hat and face with HOT GLUE!!!! I really don’t understand the hostility towards this woman who has taken time out of her life to post a great craft project, and all people seem to do is complain and act rude. Maybe next time try asking the question politely and oh I don’t know maybe thank her for even posting this. Could be why she didn’t respond to your question.

      1. Cindi

        Nicely put Rosemarie!!! It’s a DIY CRAFT idea NOT a cure for world peace. (By peoples comments that’s obvious) Good Heavens!!!! Its attitudes like that, that are creating the upheaval in our world.
