DIY Christmas Sock Snowman Instructions:

1. Cut the sock in half just past the ankle area towards the toes. Set aside the toe portion for now.
2. With the thread, tie closed the cut end of the sock. Turn the sock inside out so the tied portion is now on the inside of the sock.

3. Start filling the open end of the sock with rice. Fill till it’s almost full, but with some room to tie it closed. As you fill, lift the sock to distribute more rice near the lower half of the sock to form the body of the snowman.

4. Tie the top of the sock closed with thread. With your hands, slightly squish and form the head of the snowman and give definition to the body.
5. Using thread again, tie a piece of thread around the neck and tighten it to give it further definition.

6. With the toe portion of the sock, cut off the red strip portion of the sock, leaving equal margin on the cut side than there is on the open end of the sock. With the toe portion of the sock, fold over the open end once or twice. This is the hat. Fit the hat on the snowman and adjust where you feel looks good. With the strip of red sock portion, fold over to hide the white edges and fit over the rim of the snowman’s hat. You are basically using the red portion of the sock to hide the “brim” of the hat you just put on. Remember to leave room for eyes and a nose!

7. Using the two pins that are the same color, pin them in the head of the snowman to form his eyes. Then use the third pin for the nose.
8. Take your ribbon/fabric and tie it around the neck of the snowman. The last pin can be used to hold the scarf in place.
9. At this point, you can choose to glue on the buttons.
10. When carrying the snowman, you will want to support him from the bottom, as the rice moves around a lot and will distort his body.
