DIY Fuzzy Smiley Face

Updated: Apr 4, 2023

Hello everyone! And welcome to The Venue House! I’m excited to share this DIY with you all today for multiple reasons. First, It’s super easy to do. B, it only requires three things to make it so if you don’t have the supplies on hand it’s quick and cheap to pick up when you get the chance! When all’s said and done, you have a super cute accessory that looks great hanging on the wall or placed on a shelf! This project is also extremely versatile - you can mix and match colors to your heart's content, change up the size to fit whatever space you have in mind, and get as creative as you like in the process. Are you feeling it now, Mr. Krabs?

If you’re anything like me you always have a bit of leftover yarn from old projects but if not, as I mentioned before, with such a short list of supplies it’s easy to pick everything you’ll need up on your next trip to the craft store without lightening your wallet.

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with in your own projects and how they liven up your spaces with your own personal touch!


Step 1:

Take your poster-board and draw a circle the size you want your smiley face to be. I cannot freehand a circle so I used an old embroidery hoop to trace my circle.

Step 2:

Use an exacto knife or scissors to cut out your circle. Don't worry if it isn't perfect, you are going to cover it with yarn anyway. Use a pencil or pen to sketch your smiley face, this will make placing the yarn easier.

Step 3:

Grab the color you want to use for the eyes and the smile, and start securing it with hot glue. I found working in a circular pattern was easiest for me. When you complete a section, tuck the yarn underneath the yarn next to it and secure it with hot glue. This will help hide your edges. When you're done with your eyes and smile, move on to your border.

Step 4:

Once you're done placing your first yarn color, use your second yarn color to fill in the background. Once you are done, fill in any gaps with extra yarn. Pro tip: if you have hot glue strings all over the place when you're done, use a lint roller to get rid of them!

And voila! You're all done!
