Upcycled Sock Snowman Craft

Upcycled Sock Snowman Craft

I love making crafts from materials that I have around the house. I especially love repurposing old items that would otherwise end up in the trash. For one of our recent winter projects, my daughter and I made snowmen from old socks.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Roll a rag into a large ball.
  2. Stuff the ball into the toe of the white sock.
  3. Roll another rag into a smaller ball.
  4. Stuff the ball into the white sock next to the first rag ball.
  5. Tie off the opening of the white sock.
  6. Turn a colored baby sock inside out.
  7. Tie a knot at the toe of the sock.
  8. Turn the knotted baby sock right-side out.
  9. Fold up the edge of the baby sock.
  10. Glue the baby sock over the knot on the white sock.
  11. Tie a pipe cleaner around the center of the white sock between the two rag balls.
  12. Decorate the rest of the sock snowman with wiggle eyes, buttons, beads, pompoms, and other decorating materials.
  13. Display the upcycled sock snowman.
