Take your sock and wrap it over your bottle or container like so.

Then take your white felt and cut out a large triangle with a pair of scissors.

Take your hot glue gun and glue the triangle onto your sock.

Wrap a piece of black felt around the base of your sock and glue it down.

Fold the top corners of the black felt to give it a jacket look.

Glue 3 white buttons down the outside of the jacket and glue 1 button on your white triangle or shirt.

Make two small triangles from your white felt and glue them together to give it a more 3D look, and repeat the process.

Glue both triangles on the chest of your puppet and place a button between the triangles.

It should look something like this last picture

Once you've completed your little tuxedo, you are now ready to finish this puppet.

First off, place two white buttons where you want to put the eyes and glue them down gently.

Take a round container with one side wider than the other and draw two circles, also one bigger than the other.

Then cut out a rectangular piece of black foam and roll it before you glue it together. Once you got this done, place the the smaller circle on top and the bigger circle on the bottom to make the base of your top-hat. 

Take your newly made hat and glue onto the top of the sock's head. I personally made mine so that the hat covers a little bit of one eye, but you don't have to do that. Be creative, find what works for you. You could also simply buy a tiny top-hat from your local craft store...if you have one. I don't, that's why I made one.
