I am doing a holiday craft show and an ornament swap.  I didn't want to get too cutesy with my ornaments, so here's the Abominable Snowman:



He is still pretty cute, but will probably bite your head off.

And my favorite holiday meany, Krampus:



And here's the terrifying duo:


They still need a ribbon loop on their heads and Krampus will be also carrying a bundle of switches on his back.  You know, for switching all those naughty children.  Now I am on to mass production!  Phew!

OMG; I love these! I definately didn't know what a Krampus was but he/it is definately pretty cool! Can I ask what you made them out of?

These are great and so creative! How did you make the limbs? The ends look pipe-cleanery, but they seem to be of the same fur as the body?? At least they do on the white one.

Thanks so much!  They are really fun to make!

Abe and Krampus are made of fake fur, felt, and bump chenille for the arms and legs.  I won 200+ yards of bump chenille on ebay and it was alot of the inspiration for these guys.  Krampus's  limbs are vintage bump chenille and Abe's look very much like what you can find in any craft store, so I don't think it is vintage.

Yay! for Krampus!  I want to show everyone over at the Quirky Winter Holiday Gallery!  And I too, noticed the nipples.  With disproportionate glee. Roll Eyes

I love these little guys!

That may well be the cutest Krampus I have ever seen!
