Okay so for the materials:

-Hot glue gun
-Scissors
-Tube socks. (men size 6-12 work great!)
-Decorative woman socks
-Rubber bands
-Tooth Picks
-A cup
-Rice

Also, you will want accesories to personalize them!

-Colored String
-Jingle bells
-Small pom poms
-Googley eyes
-orange paint
-buttons

And there you go! For me, all this cost round 30 bucks but i am making 20 of them so there fairly cheap! There are also lots of pictures to show you the stuff i used...

Now were going to make the actually snowman.. heres the steps:

1. Fill the cup up with the rice and put the sock over the cup like in picture 1 and flip the cup over to dump all the rice in.
2. Repeat until you have 3 cups of rice in the sock. 
3. Rubber band that off tightly around the top like in picure 2.
4. Like in step 1, fill the cup up again and pour the rice in.. but this time only put in one cup.. this will be the head..
5. Rubber band it off like in picture 3..
6. Cut off the top part of the sock until you have something like the last picture!

Now we need to put some clothes on him.. PROCEED! ;)

How do u make the hats?

It's been almost 2 years, so I don't remember exactly but in step 2 it shows a picture and I believe that the hats are the top (ankle part) of the sock, then you take that and roll the edge onto the face, and tie off the top with some string, rubber band, etc.

I think you did a beautiful job, i love them all. Snow people are my most favorite and I will be doing these with my grand daughter. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much! I just made these last year, didn't know it would get this much hype! I'm probably going to make something else this year for the family for Christmas. Maybe some led light bulbs that are ornaments or something? So knows! But thanks!
i came up with my own "sock snowmen" last year for Christmas though they turned out different to these. one thing i did was fill mine with sweets/small gifts that didn't cost much.
Qué bonitos y fáciles, muchas gracias por enseñarnos a hacer estos bellos muñequitos :)
