Snowmen for the Mantle

Snowmen

How cute are these to make with the little ones?!!!!!!!!!!!

For this craft, you’ll need
a pair of old socks that are crew length, or longer,
rice,
rubber bands,
map pins with heads,
buttons,
any left over 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!
