There’s nothing like holly jolly characters to fill your house with joy during the holidays, and these roly-poly cuties take the cake. They’re cheerful, playful, and fun. These sweeties will look quite festive amongst all of your other holiday decorations in any room.

Getting Started

Using #4 worsted-weight yarn, work each design in a round from the bottom of the character’s body, using the color of your choice, although the obvious colors make the most sense. The angel can be any color you like, but blue or purple would provide a nice contrast with the red of Santa Claus and the white of the snowman.

Simple chain stitches will take care of attaching arms, scarves, wings, and other accessories to each character. You can make each one unique by switching up the color or position of each accessory to match the holiday decor in each room of your house.

Fill your finished characters with polyester fiberfill and embellish them with the ribbons and buttons of your choice to personalize them for you or the intended recipient. The finished size is eight inches tall and a heart full of adorable.

Where They Belong

These guys look cute on the kitchen counter, on the mantle, on an end table, or hanging on the tree. They’re small and lightweight enough to stand or hang anywhere. They also make perfect gifts. Personalize each with custom embroidery letters, a best friend’s favorite colors, or to match your mother-in-law’s holiday theme.

Better yet, throw them in a Christmas gift basket for a thoughtful collection of holiday goodies. It’s the perfect way to spread holiday cheer to those you love.
