Introduction: Super Dooper Sock Snowmen!!!

Greetings! Well, as the title says.... We will be creating awesome sock snowmen! (See picture) These are great gifts and the final price is around 3 dollars per snowman and you can make how ever many you want! You can now get all your christmas shopping knocked out in just an hour or two! Its a great way to save money and you can personlize them to fit the person you are giving it to! Well, lets get started!!!

Step 1: Materials and Tools

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
-flowers

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...

Step 2: Lets Build Up the Body!

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! ;)

Step 3: Put Some Clothes on Mr. Snowman!

Now we need to dress him up..
 
1. Take your decorative sock and cut it in pieces like mine in picture 2.
2. Throw away the toe and heel pices.
3. Use the piece of the sock that goes on your foot (not your ankle) for the shirt and pull it over.
4. Now use the ankle part as a hat, make sure the elastic part is up at the top..
5. Roll the edges around a little bit to make it look good..
6. Take some string and tie a bow around the top of the hat like i did.. ( you cant see it in the picture but its there.. )

There we goo! Now for some Accesoriesss!!!!

Step 4: Accesories!

Now, this step isnt going to be like my other ones where you have the same thing as me.. you can look at all my pictures and think up cool stuff.. but i will give you some ideas....

-Big buttons for ear muffs
-buttons down the chest
-Take a tooth pick and color it orange or paint it and stick it in for a nose.
-googly eyes for the eyes
-use lots of ribbon for different accesories
-use jingle bells for buttons
-Pom poms for accesories
-Be creative!!!

The options are endless for a cute little snowman!

Step 5:

Well... through all this hard work. .(haha) i think it has paid off.. We now have wonderful sock snowmen that will bring cheer to all your holiday guests.. and even to yourslef!! These are great gifts for people and, heck, half of you out there will probably make them 5 times cooler than mine! Just experiment and be creative and, well, when all else fails, google.. lol.. but these are soo cheap and take like 15 minuetes a snowman and i started making 3 at a time and i made about 8 in and hour.. have fun with it!

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.

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.
