Cut out your pattern pieces.
Glue the chimney pieces together and then glue those to the inside of one of the house pieces at least 1/4" from the edge of the roof. Next, glue the snow to the chimney. Allow to dry.
Fold the ribbon in half and tie the end in an overhand knot. Glue into place to the right of the glued chimney piece. Allow to dry.
Glue the roof pieces into place using a thin line of craft glue close to the edge of the house. Then, lightly glue the door and window in place. Using too much glue on those two pieces will make it difficult to stitch later. Allow to dry.
Lightly glue the remaining decor pieces to the front of the house. Allow to dry.
Starting with the red decor piece using white thread and working from the center of the circle and the split stitch, work a spiral from the center towards the edge of the circle.
Using the green thread and the back/outline stitch, work a line of stitches along the edge of the door.
With white thread, work a back/outline stitch around the edge of the green piece just like you did the door. Then, stitch "fruit sections" into the center of this piece.
Using the red thread, work a back/outline stitch only one stitch covers the entire cane on a diagonal.
Glue the red pom poms in this fashion on the window. Allow to dry.
Beginning at one corner where the snow on the roof meets the house, begin whip stitching the snow across the top passing through the ribbon and chimney. Finish off the white thread on the opposite side of the house as directed in the stitch tutorial.
Next, using the tan thread, whip stitch 2 sides of the house leaving the last side open for the stuffing.
Fill with polyfil or stuffing of choice. Finish up the whip stitching of the remaining side.
