  • Scissors
  • hot glue and glue gun

What You Will Need

  • Socks
  • Stuffing material
  • Marbles could also use rice or anything to add weight
  • Twine
  • Yarn
  • Felt
  • Black buttons
  • Small snowman nose


  • Cut off the top of the sock and set aside. It will become your snowman's hat in a moment.
  • Add weight to the bottom of your sock then fill with your stuffing.
  • Create the body and head of your snowman by tying twine around your snowmen a couple of times.
  • Take the piece you cut off of the sock and pull if over the top of your snowman's head for the hat. Take a colored piece of yarn to tie the top of the hat in a toboggan style.
  • Cut a thin strip of felt and tie it around your snowman's neck. Use your scissors to cut fringe at the ends of the scarf.
  • Use your glue gun to attach the buttons, eyes, and nose.


Note: Once you fill your sock with your weight and stuffing and tie it off, you may need to adjust the weight a little to make your sock snowman stand up. Once you get it standing, it's good to go!
