Our MOPS group fills Operation Christmas Child boxes to be sent around the world to needy children, and this year we added a personal touch to each gift by creating these adorably silly snowmen using socks and basic craft supplies. Each one made me smile and giggle more than the one before it.Supplies:
- Chenille socks ($1 per pair at the $1 store)
- googly eyes
- hot glue gun
- batting/polyfillStep 1: Cut the toe off of the sock (about 3 inches or so) and set aside. Then turn the sock inside out. Using a little yarn, tie one end tightly and turn right side out.Step 2: Fill sock with lots of polyfill. That’s right, just stuff it in there!Step 3: Tie the open end closed tightly (you don’t want those snowman guts oozing out!).Step 4: Using several strands of yarn, tie the snowman around the middle to divide his “head” from his “body” and attach his hat. It was nice to have a variety of socks and mix up the bodies and hats. I mean silly and cute sum up these homemade snowmanI hope these cuties make the children receiving them as happy as they made us while we were making them. WAY TO GO MOPS MOMS!!
