Sock Snowmen Tutorial


Welcome to Holiday Hooplah!  Anna here from St@ampAnna Designs.  Today I am going to share with you a tutorial on how to make these cute little snowmen.  

First off you need a few supplies:
  • Mens Sock
  • Womens socks with patterns
  • Scissors
  • Rubber Bands
  • Rice
  • Buttons
  • Toothpick
  • Hot Glue

Step 1:  Take your tube sock and cur off the top portion about 1/2" from the ridges of the tube.
Step 2:  Turn your tube inside out and tie a rubber band around one end of the sock.
Step 3:  Turn your sock inside out again so the rubber band is on the inside of the sock.
Step 4:  Fill your sock up with rice.  I do about 2 of the juice size cups full.  Then tie a rubber band on the top of the sock to close up the snowman body.
Step 5:  Take a decorative sock and cut it like shown in the picture.
Step 6:  Tie a rubber band around the toe part of the sock.  This will be the Hat of the snowman.
Step 7:  Take the other part of the sock that you cut. (the middle) and place on your snowman body.
Step 8:  Place the hat on top of the snowman.  I used hot glue to hold the hat in place.
Step 9:  Create a pom pom out of Yarn and Hot glue it on top of the hat.

With a orange tooth pick, cut off the tip and hot glue it on the snowman for its nose.  With hot glue place black buttons for the eyes and the buttons of the shirt.
