Snowman Treat Ornament

"I have been creating snowman gift bags and thought a snowman treat holder ornament would be a companion to the bags. I used the same technique of creating a white body, changing to a colorful yarn to make the scarf and then white again for the head. To complete the snowman, I made two pieces and sewed on cute buttons for eyes, nose, and buttons on the belly. Then I sewed the two pieces together and crocheted with the scarf color around the top, adding a loop for hanging on the tree."

This was a Top Ten Ornament in the Best Ornament Contest 2016! Check out the top ten winners here, and be sure to check out all of the amazing ornament tutorial entries.
