  • 1 crew length white sock
  • Colorful sock (for the hat)
  • Uncooked Rice (around 2 cups)
  • 1 rubber band
  • 3 Buttons (any color)
  • Black marker
  • 1 Orange Pom Pom
  • Ribbon (around 6-8 inch
  • Hot glue gun

Step 1:

Fill up the white sock with around two cups of rice, or however much you would like. To make it easier to pour,     you can stretch the sock over the measuring cup and then fill it over to pour the rice in (see picture).

Step 2:

Tie the top of the sock in a knot, so the rice does not spill. Make sure you tie the knot close to the rice so you do not leave a lot of empty space inside the sock.

Step 3:

Separate some of the rice at the top, towards the knot, from the rest of the rice in the shape of a ball to form the head of the snowman. Then, tie the rubber band around the section to keep it separate.

Step 4:

Use hot glue to glue the three buttons onto the body of the snowman.

Step 5:

Use the marker to draw a face on your snowman. Then, use hot glue to glue the orange Pom Pom onto the face for a nose.

Step 6:

To make the hat, cut the colorful sock in half about 2.5-3 inches from the toe. Roll up the edges a few times and place the hat over the top of the knot on the head of the snowman. If you need to, you can cut part of the sock off of the top of the snowman.

Step 7:

Wrap the ribbon around the neck of the snowman to make a scarf and also to cover the rubber band. Use hot glue to secure the ribbon. 

Step 8:

Place your snowman wherever you would like in your home or give as a gift.

Hopefully you will enjoy making this holiday craft. This is a great craft for all ages. It was relatively easy and quick to make, and it turned out very well on the first try. Good luck if you chose to make your own sock snowman and happy holidays.
