Dig in your scrap basket and gather your mateless socks to make these cuties! These snowmen are made from socks and other scraps, and I think they are adorable decorations for the wintertime!
Frosty and Friends
Snow cute! These soft puppets are made from craft scraps, spare buttons, and socks.
What You’ll Need:
* Two white tube socks
* Polyester fiber fill
* Ribbon or fabric scrap
* Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
* Small buttons
* Black and red felt
* Black or gray baby sock
Cut off ribbed end of both tube socks. Fill one sock about 3/4 full with fiber filling, then insert second sock up through the middle filling. Hand-sew a few stitches at the toe to keep inner sock in place. Tie a fabric scrap or piece of ribbon around the neck as a scarf (make it tight enough to create a neck, but loose enough for a kid’s hand to fit inside the sock). Use buttons, fabric scraps, felt, and pom-poms for snowman’s features; attach securely with hot glue or hand-sew. Cut a small baby sock in half and roll up ends slightly to create a hat; hot-glue to top of sock. To keep stuffing inside the puppet, hot-glue or hand-sew the two socks together around the base, leaving an opening in the middle for a child’s hand to fit through.
