How about celebrating some winter fun this holiday season and the good news is you can stay right inside your cozy home to experience this chilly time of year! How, you may ask…by welcoming in Mr. Snowman and I promise he won’t melt…..only his heart if you love him!
Mr. Snowman is our own design and was a joint effort by Harry and me. The gourd face was designed by Harry who also figured out a way to attach the clothes by way of a wooden hanger. The snowman’s face also lights up thanks to a tea light votive that resides on the top of his head. Harry also wrapped a piece of wire around the votive so it will not fall though the top opening. There is an “on and off” switch located on the back but a timer feature is not available.
After Harry breathed personality and life into the snowman’s face I decided to do some accent painting around his eyes, mouth and nose. He has a three dimensional look because the nose and pipe were fashioned separately. Mr. Snowman’s custom made hat took quite a while to construct and the brim sports a naïve blanket stitch done in turkey red thread that secures the double layered fabric. Greens were added to the brim and are removable.
Mr. Snowman is dressed in style boasting “Oshkosh” tan overalls accented with red flannel cuffs that I rolled up to gain color. Snow tipped greens also enhance his appearance tucked into the pocket areas as shown in image 10. He is also wearing a crimson red sweater that will keep the chill at bay! All of the clothes are in good condition without any holes, rips or stains to report. Each of the leg and wrist openings are stuffed with removable old cotton batting rescued from a quilt that offer a finished look. A little homespun muffler graces his neck and the best surprise of all is……..his sweetheart Mrs. Snowman that he holds close and protects near his chest.
This endearing snow lady was fashioned from the same batting of an old quilt which provides a cozy, soft and layered feature. I stitched up a feather tree using old wool and also added facial features. The special wood buttons exhibit a carved floral design as shown in image 14. Mrs. Snow lady needed a shawl to keep her warm so I made one using old wool fabric. A candy cane was tucked into her shawl and her custom black hat gives her distinct character. She is pined to her husband and can easily be removed if you so choose.
This one of a kind hanging snowman would be perfect for an entry door protected with a covered porch or why miss out on all the fun as they can certainly be displayed inside as well. This couple will make your holidays bright and cheerful filled with merriment while conjuring up a whisper of North pole magic especially come Christmas Eve. By the way, this piece can be displayed all winter long because this provocative and unique pair will not melt until spring! Enjoy!
Mr. Snowman stands 30” tall (including the hat measurement), measures 8” across from shoulder to shoulder, measures 11” across the widest point (just below the middle area) and measures 10 ½” across the bottom where cuff is located) and is 4 ¾” deep, front to back (head area). The hanger measures 10” tall and will hang 5 ½” above the snowman hat.
