You need something to do with those old socks, well here you go.
Fun to make with the kiddos!
For this craft, you’ll need:
a pair of old socks that are crew length, or longer
map pins with heads
any leftover fabric if you want for a scarf.
First, 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!
