Snowman Holiday Project

I like to help the grandkids make a little something for Muma and Daddy for Christmas.  This year's project were these easy peasy snowmen.

Aren't they cute.

Here's how we made them.

  1. Cut the foot off of a new crew sock.
  2. Turn the sock inside out and use a rubber band to tightly close up one end of the tube.
  3. Turn the sock right side out
  4. Fill sock with rice. (It is helpful to have a wide-mouth funnel for this step.)  Don't go crazy here.  These are cutest when made smaller.  These are about 4 inches tall.
  5. Use a rubber band to tightly seal the top of the tube.
  6. Use one more rubber band around the middle of the snowman
  7. Use push pins to create eyes and nose.  Map pins would have been better, but I couldn't find any, so I just used colored pins.
  8. Use scrap material to make a scarf
  9. Use buttons, hearts or jewels for tummy decoration.
  10. Cut off the toe of the sock and make a little hat 


  1. These are the cutest little snowmen and I'm going to CASE them! LOL! TFS the instructions!
