Sock Snowman

Very little remains until the New Year 2017. Not only the kids, but also adults are looking forward to this wonderful magical holiday. Of course, many are already making New Year crafts and Christmas tree toys. This time, my older son and I decided to make a snowman from socks. Since the snowman is a very famous New Year character and is even one of the main characters of our favorite fairy tales. To make our snowman we need:
  • socks 3 pcs. (1 white and 2 color);
  • buttons 4 pcs. (2 black and 2 color);
  • elastic 2 pieces;
  • grits and salt;
  • super glue ;
  • cardboard;
  • scissors.
1. Cut a small circle out of cardboard. I just circled the glass, so the circle turned out to be even and the size I needed. Its size depends on the size of the sock. Then I will explain why.

2. Take a white sock of medium size and insert a circle of cardboard in it,so that our future snowman stood steadily, and did not sway from side to side and certainly did not fall.

3. We put a sock and gently fall asleep cereal in it. We used barley, because of its low cost compared to other cereals, but wheat, rice, and even buckwheat would be fine. In order that later worms do not start up in the croup, it is advisable to add some coarse salt.

4. Now with the help of thin gum we make a snowman torso and head. We used gum from banknotes. In principle, instead of elastic bands can use thick threads. And cut the excess fabric with scissors from the top of the sock.

5. Next, take the second medium size sock and cut off the upper part - where the gum. In childhood, my sisters and I did dolls of the skirt. And for a snowman, it will be a blouse-coat. The third sock is better to take a small size, that is, for children, since from it we will make a hat for a snowman.On the contrary, we cut off a place for fingers.

And having bent a little inwards, we make a hat, which you can later decorate with a shiny button a little.

6. Then take the buttons. We make two eyes out of two black ones, and make two pieces of color (we took in the form of candies) on the jacket-coat, sticking them with super glue.

7. Well, what a snowman without a nose. We made a nose from a brush, or rather from her pen. She accidentally caught my eye when I thought of what to make a snowman's nose. The fact is that our brush is made of brown plastic. And we easily cut the piece with scissors and used a super glue to attach the nose to the snowman.
