Easy to Make No-Sew Sock Snowman
There's something magical about making these silly sock snowmen...
They're cute, funny and always unique.
They can be made by both adults and children, as long as an adult is available to help with the hot glue gun.
The best part... is definitely dressing them up...
I have to say, I have particularly fond memories of these little guys... making a whole batch with my husband and giving them to family and friends our very first Christmas together...
They were a lot of fun and a huge hit! I wonder if anyone knew how easy they are to make?
To help you get started making your very own sock snowmen, I've included the following step-by-step instructions... be sure to decorate as inspired and of course have a great time!

Tip: When choosing tube socks for this project, keep in mind that a thickly ribbed tube sock will provide a more interesting winter hat than a subtly ribbed tube sock...

How To Make Easy Sock Puppets:
You can also make simple sock puppets... for a fun project and you can get as creative as you like.
To first determine positioning for facial features, simply slip your hand inside your clean sock, using your fingers and thumb to form a talking mouth. Mark lightly with a pen the spots for eyes, nose, mouth and ears. Then glue as desired.
Glue buttons or googly eyes for eyes, yarn for hair and cut and glue felt lips, nose and ears...
For another interesting sock puppet you can use the whole end of the sock to make one big mouth. Take two ping pong balls (or other similar white balls) and make a small black circle (like an iris) on each one. Glue them above the sock mouth and finish with yarn, lips etc. Totally goofy!
Get creative and make sock girls, sock boys, sock animals... apply bows, ties, buttons, fur, patches, bells, pipe cleaners, hand stitching or whatever works!
Now you can plan a puppet show using a covered table to hide behind or even better by making a card board box theater with three sides and a single window for your show.
Or, if you like sewing, I recently stumbled upon Funky Sock Monkey's modern sock monkey pattern. I just love sock monkeys!
