Hello, Lovely People !
Christmas is a great time to get crafty with your kids or younger members of your family! But with so many different things to make that are too long or difficult to keep there attention, it can be hard to keep those little bundles of energy entertained throughout the holidays. Fortunately, my girlfriends mum is fabulously creative and showed me how to make these adorable sock snowmen with only an old sock, a bag of rice and a couple of buttons ! So here we go :
What You'll Need :
- One Plain White Sock
- One Patterned Sock
- 6 Little Buttons ( all colors, shaped and sizes are great ! )
- One Piece of Christmas Ribbon
- A Lil bit of string
- One Bag of Rice
Step One : Cut the plain white sock along the ankle line
Step Two : Fill almost to the top with rice and tie a piece of string around the top of the sock and double / triple knot it to make sure it's completely secure and no rice can escape !
Step Three : Tie a second piece of string around two thirds of the way up your snowman's body to separate his head from his body and wrap the string around a few times before double knotting again so that it stays put.
Step Four : Fold the patterned sock up a couple times to form a little hat that you can put on your snowman's head
Step Five : Glue on two button eyes, a nose and three little buttons down his tummy
Step Six : Finally tie a lil bit of ribbon around your snowman's neck to make his scarfs annnddd... VOILA ! Your own personal snowman buddy !
Why not make a whole family of snowmen friends ? It's a great activity that costs barely anything to make and is brilliant fun for the whole family ! If you give them a try then I'd love to hear how it went in the comments !
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smile :)
Lots of love, Marianne xxx
