Sock Snowman craft for the holidays!

This cute sock snowman craft is easy enough to make with the kids from items you probably have on hand at home. Thank you to Deborah at Super Moms 360 for sharing her project with us.


  • 1 long all-white adult tube sock
  • Scissors
  • 3 rubber bands
  • 1½ cups rice (dry)
  • Hot glue gun
  • 2 googly eyes
  • 1 small orange bead or sequin (for nose)
  • 2 medium sequins or buttons
  • 6-8” strip of scrap fabric, 1" wide
  • Small colored pom-pom


Cut off the leg portion of the sock (approx. 4 inches) and set aside. Using the foot portion, turn the sock inside out and secure a rubber band to the tip of the toe. Turn the sock right side out again. Fill the sock with ¾ to 1 cup of dry rice. Twist and use a rubber band to secure the bottom part of the snowman. Add ¼ to ½ cup of rice to the next part of the sock so it is slightly smaller than the lower portion and then secure a rubber band on the top. Don’t worry about the uneven part at the top as it will be covered by the hat.

Use a hot glue gun to attach the eyes, the orange nose and the buttons. Wrap the piece of fabric around the snowman's neck as a scarf.

Use the leg portion of the sock as the snowman's hat. Place the top part of the sock on the snowman's head to create the rim of the hat and then fold forward. Add a pom-pom to the end of the hat.
