Another idea is to grab them from the dollar store. They worked fine for this.
Adult Socks say “Fit Shoe Size 6-11” and the Child Socks say “Fit Shoe Size 6-8” and they are a white sock crew style.
You can even jazz things up and use a patterned sock colored sock to make one of these cute sock snowmen.
We do a ton of crafts so I like to have them on hand anyway.
Make sure to have a glue gun for this sock snowman craft with rice.
It seems I always need more glue than I realize. It’s not fun to run out mid project…..Not that this has happened or anything.
Let’s learn how to make Snowman Crafts!
The kids will have a blast helping and everyone will enjoy spending time together.
This Dollar Tree sock snowman is so cute and easy to make!
Materials Needed for Sock snowman made with rice:
- white adult and child size crew socks
- White ribbon, string or yarn
- black buttons
- orange pom poms
- small paper plate
- fleece (Scrap fabric is fine.)
- foam snowflake stickers
- hot glue and hot glue gun
How to make snowman craft:
1. For the adult size sock, I used 4-1/4 cups rice (3 cups on the bottom/body and 1-1/4 cups on the top/head). For the child size sock, I used 1-1/2 cups rice (1 cup on the bottom/body and 1/2 cup on the top/head)
2. Roll down the cuff of a sock and place a rolled paper plate into the sock. This will create a funnel to use to fill the sock with rice.
Pour rice into your sock. Remove the plate. Shake the rice down into the bottom of the sock filled with rice.
3. Secure the sock with yarn or ribbon and tie the top. You can use a rubber band here if desired, but I fear they will rot and fall apart and then your snowman craft will be no more.
Close the top and secure tightly with a double knot. Trim excess string from the snowman body.
4. Return the paper plate to the sock and pour in more rice to create the head. You may need to pay attention to the sock as the heel may create an awkward head on part of the sock.
Make sure the heel portion of the sock is on the back. Secure the sock just as you did for the body.
5. Trim the top of the sock and discard based on the size of your snowman.
6. Cut a piece of fleece for the hat. As well as a thin strip to tie the hat (about 1/2″ x 6″)
(Adult Size was about 6″ x 11″ with a 12″ x 1″ scarf. Child size was 6″ x 8″ with the same size scarf)
7. Fold the long edge of the hat up, twice and secure with hot glue. This will create the brim of the hat. Wrap the hat around the snowman‘s head and attach together in the back with hot glue.
8. Gather the top of the hat and secure it with the thin strip of fleece by tying in a double knot. If desired, trim the top of the hat with scissors.
9. Trim the ends of the scarf to create fringe. Wrap the scarf around the snowman and adjust as desired. Trim ends if necessary and re-cut fringe to create a scarf. Secure the scarf where it intersects with hot glue.
11. Attach foam snowflake stickers with hot glue on the hat if desired.
