      Sock Snowmen {10th day of christmas: sock snowmen} Ok, this is definitely my favorite craft I've made all season. First, because they're super easy to make, and second, because they're ADORABLE. I've been meaning to make some kind of snowman craft since the 1st day of Christmas crafts, but unfortunately I couldn't figure out a good design. So far I've made all my crafts with stuff I've had lying around the house, so my holiday craft cost was close to nothing. Adorable snowmen, however, require blocks of wood or pieces of styrofoam or paint or fabric and time and effort and money. I was debating between making a snowman out of a wire hanger or rolls of fabric when a thought struck me: socks! Socks are the perfect medium for snowmen! Sure enough, I found some adorable inspiration from {then she made}, and I set to work. {sock snowmen} For this craft, you'll need a pair of old socks that are crew length, or longer. I went through Tanner's bag o' socks in our closet for my set. Don't worry, he'll never miss them -- he owns something like 10,000 pairs of socks, but insists on wearing shorts and flip-flops 365 days a year. Boys... 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. I used map pins for my eyes. Unfortunately, I didn't have any black ones, so I colored white ones with sharpie and stuck them in. 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, as seen at {then she made}. 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!
