Sock Snowman

Sock Snowman

How cute are these to make with the little ones?!!!!!!!!!!!

For this craft, you'll need; 
  • a pair of old socks that are crew length, or longer 
  • rice 
  • rubber bands 
  • map pins with heads 
  • buttons 
  • any left over fabric if you want for a scarf. 

irst, cut off the top of the sock from the foot. Turn the sock inside out and attach a rubber band tightly to the top of the sock. Then turn the sock right-side out again. Fill the sock with rice. Make sure to pack it down as you go so the sock gets a nice round base. Rubber band the top of the sock closed and put another rubber band 3/4 of the way to the top for the head of your snowman. Now, decorate! Tie a scarf around your snowman's neck and add eyes, nose, and buttons. Use the toe of your cut socks to fashion a stocking cap. Or you could use colored argyle socks to create hats and sweaters for your snowman. You can either sew or glue on your buttons, and add embellishments - twine, bows, ribbons, etc - as needed. 

This is such a quick and easy craft - 10 minutes tops that it would be simple to create a whole family of snowmen for your mantle!
