Adorable Sock Snowmen – #12DaysOfDIY

12 days of xmas blogging-1 For the second day of my #12DaysOfDIY, I thought to present to you the making of some adorable sock snowmen.

This time of year, we’re flooded with Santa’s, Angles, and Reindeer, Polar Bears, Penguins, Snowmen and the alike – complete with Santa hats and full winter attire – in shop displays, on TV and home decoration.
Of all, Snowmen are my favorite! Sure Santa’s have their flair – I mean, they do bring presents to all the good little boys and girls, right?

Still, for some reason, Snowmen are the ones that truly melt my heart into a puddle.

I came across many, many ideas on Pinterest (here’s my X-Mas inspiration board), but finally settled down to give the one from {then she made} a go. The snowmen made there looked simplest, and flat out adorable!

Adorable Sock Snowmen

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.

For decoration, tie a scarf around your snowman’s neck and add eyes, nose, and buttons. You can use sewing or map pins for eyes and holding the little scarves in place.

Sew or glue on your buttons, and add embellishments if needed, like twine, bows, ribbons, etc.

Use the toe of your cut socks to fashion a stocking cap. Or use colored argyle socks to create hats and sweaters for your snowman, as seen at {then she made}.

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