Step 1: Materials and Tools
-Hot glue gun
-Tube socks. (men size 6-12 work great!)
-Decorative woman socks
Also, you will want accesories to personalize them!
-Small pom poms
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!
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!
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.. )
