Last summer I bought a snowman plaque at a garage sale with the idea that I could use it as an example for the 6th grade to try to duplicate using cardboard instead of wood for the snowman base. I had it in mind for them to make their own patterns for the hat and carrot nose, but class time didn’t allow that. So I made a pattern for them to trace onto the black felt and the orange felt. I had wanted to use fleece for the scarves and hat bands, but I didn’t have enough scraps for that, so I used some type of jersey scraps. Any fabric that doesn’t ravel will work as long as it has a holiday look. For directions, supplies list and pattern, go to ” Snowman Plaque,” under the 6th Grade tab in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
