Silly Sock Snowmen

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.Silly Sock Snowmen 10Supplies:

  • Chenille socks ($1 per pair at the $1 store)
  • googly eyes
  • scissors
  • yarn
  • buttons
  • hot glue gun
  • batting/polyfillSilly Sock Snowmen 1Step 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.Silly Sock Snowmen 3Step 2:  Fill sock with lots of polyfill.  That’s right, just stuff it in there!Silly Sock Snowmen 4Step 3:  Tie the open end closed tightly (you don’t want those snowman guts oozing out!).Silly Sock Snowmen 5Step 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.
