Day 2 of 12 Days of Christmas in July Snowman Banner


Hey there friends and fellow snowman fans! Time to share the project I created for day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas in July tutorial series on our YouTube channel. I created a sweet snowman banner with the Winter Magic collection from Echo Park.

Obviously the snowman is a classic Christmas icon so this banner is great for the holiday….but will be equally at home all season long if you live somewhere that stays cold long after the 25th like we do. We had several days in April this year with snow so I can leave this up until Spring!

I used a pennant shaped die to cut all the layers for these sections so the busy work went super quick.

The focal images are layered stickers I picked up from Hobby Lobby. They are so sweet and charming. I’ve stacked them onto a scalloped stitched circle and a smallish doily for a nice full effect.

The flowers are all handmade by me and finished off with stamens from RRR. They’re arranged with a simple loopy twine bow and die cut holly leaves.

The sections of the banner are all connected with extra tags positioned between on a double layer of chunky pom pom trim. Of course I can’t make a project without a bow…..or 4. These are topped with more twine and jingle bells. Last but not least some dimensional silver stars to balance the bells.

Won’t you join me for a tutorial?

I hope you will join me for the rest of the series : )
