This holiday season, make an adorable crochet snowman gift card holder to give a handmade touch to a plain gift card. This sweet little guy is quick and easy to make for crocheters of any skill level!
It’s day three of the 2023 Advent Calendar Mystery Crochet Along. I’ve had so much fun so far! How about you? If you just got here, this is how it works: each day, from December 1st through the 24th, I’ll release one amazing free pattern for holiday gifts right here on my blog. Every day, you’ll discover a fun new surprise so make sure to check in regularly (or purchase the ebook, below, if you want all of the patterns right now)!
This year’s third crochet gift idea, a cute snowman gift card holder, is the perfect gift for someone who has everything. Instead of buying them something they will never use, instead choose a gift card from their favorite store. Then, you can give it a little personal touch by tucking it inside of this friendly snowman pouch.
It’s also economical, as it only takes small amounts of white, orange, and black yarn. So it’s a great way to use up your yarn stash, too.
Now it’s time to get started!
