Quick and Easy Snowman Christmas Craft

Are you ready for Christmas? I sure am. I love Christmas, it is my favorite time of the year. I also love to make Christmas crafts. My home will be decorated with many of our homemade Christmas crafts.

However, Christmas can be very busy and hectic, so I like super quick projects that will fit into my schedule.

I have this thing for snowmen. I just love them and think they are just the cutest thing, so when I saw this snowman made with a tube sock and rice, I just had to make it and share with all of you.

This is one of the quickest crafts and is easy enough for your small children to help with too.

Easy Snowman Christmas Craft

Supplies needed

  • 1 white sock, tube socks work best
  • oatmeal for filler~rice, beans, or sand will also work
  • ribbon
  • 2 rubberbands
  • buttons, including 2 black buttons for eyes
  • something for the nose like the tip of a toothpick painted orange
  • hot glue gun

Step 1:

  • Cut off the foot part of your sock. You will need the tube part to be the body of the snowman, the foot will be the hat.

Step 8:

  • Cut the foot of the sock to your preference for the size of the hat. You can always use a colorful patterned sock for the hat.
