10th day of christmas: sock snowmen


For this craft, you’ll need a pair of old socks that are crew length, or longer. I went through Tanner’s bag o’ socks in our closet for my set. Don’t worry, he’ll never miss them — he owns something like 10,000 pairs of socks, but insists on wearing shorts and flip-flops 365 days a year. Boys…


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. I used map pins for my eyes. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any black ones, so I colored white ones with sharpie and stuck them in.


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, as seen at {then she made}.


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!
