Primitive Christmas Decorations: Snowmen

by Margo on Wednesday, August 19, 2009

It is not too early to be thinking about those primitive Christmas decorations. And back again from last year are the personalized snowmen. These sold like primitive hotcakes last year and they have already been selling this year. Nothing says prim Christmas quite like a primitive personalized snowman. Get one for every member of your family and hang them on your tree. Of course they can be used in many other ways. Let your prim imagination run wild!

Each snowman ornie is made from osnaburg fabric which has been stuffed with a double layer of quilter’s batting and then placed in my special prim grunging solution of coffee, vanilla and cinnamon mixture giving them that prim look that we all love.  Each prim snowman is about  7 1/2 inches tall and 1/3 inch thick.

The primitive snowmen eyes are two small black craft beads and the nose has been hand embroidered. Your choice of names will be hand sewn at the bottom. There is also some blush on the snowmen cheeks painted on. Rusty vintage looking jingle bells are used for the buttons.

Finally mica flakes are sprinkled on each snowman. They can be left off if you like. A cotton string has been attached to the back of the ornament for ease in hanging on your holiday tree.

Free personalization is limited to 12 letters.    The personalized name will be hand embroidered using black embroidery floss.   You can get anything that you want on them. You could get a Christmas word or two instead of a name. Such as ” Ho Ho Ho”, “Primitive”, “Christmas”, etc. Get a word on each one and make a sentence!

I have tied a piece of homespun fabric for the snowman’s scarf.  I have several homespun colors available too.  Colors available are : hunter green, burgundy,  navy blue, and red and green check.   You are more than welcome to request a particular color scarf.

To purchase these or to see other Primitive Christmas items visit my eBay store at : Choose Moose Primitive Designs.

Here is a video with some primitive decorating ideas!
This is my first video. So it is a little “primitive”!

[click to continue…]


I had a primitive blast making these ornaments! They are very primitive and extremely fragrant!
Included is everything you need. You will get the primitive star metal pan, 3 star cinnamon dough ornaments, 3 grapevine stars, and the rose hips. See it at: Cinnamon Dough Ornaments.

It is rare that I sell a ready to display set, but I thought that I would give it a try. If you are new this primitive display is ready to go just for you. If you are a primitive pro, you can mix and match these items with your items.

I had so much fun making these cinnamon dough ornaments, that you will be seeing more of them very soon in my store. Keep checking your primitive bookmarks!

I am also getting ready for Valentine’s Day with some new primitive hearts. Check the store for more information.

Hoping that you have a Very Prim New Year!!!! Thanks for stopping by.
