How To Make A Sock Snowman
So I started out my Thursday Craft Blog with the idea of making a plate/dish out of candy. I got all of the stuff together and followed the directions on Pinterest, and well – it didn’t come out very well at all. I think if I used regular mints (like from a restaurant) there would have been a big difference, but oh well. Here’s how it turned out:
Sock Snowman Christmas Tree Ornament
What you need:
- (1) small white sock
- (1) small piece of orange felt
- (2) googly eyes (craft supplies)
- (1) 6″ length of red thread or ribbon
- (1) small embellishment of your choice
- (2) small rubber bands
- Fiberfill Poly Stuffing (or whatever you use)
- Sharp Scissors & Crafting Scissors (/\/\/\)
- Fabric Glue or Hot Glue Gun
- & Time!
1. To begin, cut across at the heel of the sock you’re using.
2. Stuff the “toe” of the sock with the fiberfill or stuffing that you using.
3. Fold the yarn or ribbon you are using in half and secure the ends together with a knot. Insert the knotted end into the (unstuffed) cut end of the sock. Secure that end around the knotted end of the ribbon with a small rubber band. Slightly tug the exposed loop of the ribbon to form a hanger, and verify that it is seated. (I could never get this to happen right and my 11 year old said “hand it over” and he took care of it!!) ha/ha
6. Glue the noses on to the sock. Using a marker, we colored the mouths on and glued on the googly eyes (Dylan said he wanted his to look different).
7. When finished with that, use a red or pink crayon to add cheeks. Pick the embellishment you want for the hat part and glue that on to adorn it.
