Good morning friends. This morning I'd like to share a little craft with you rather than a card. Most of you know I am a BIG fan of snowmen, and when I saw this cute idea on Suzanne Dean's blog here, I fell in LOVE!! These were so much fun to make and really quick and easy too. You simply start with the leg portion of a guys tube sock and fill it with rice and secure with rubber bands. Suzanne has a great tutorial on her blog, so make sure you check it out. I don't think I spent much more than an hour on the 4 that I made, and they're pretty economical to make too. I used my husbands socks that had holes in the bottom, and the only thing I purchased was Christmas socks that were BOGO to make their stocking caps. Take a look:
Aren't they cute?!! I kept mine rather simple, but you can dress them up as much or as little as you want. For the scarves on mine, I used the foot part of the sock and cut off the toe and heel sections, made a cut to make a rectangle shape, fringed each end, and then tied around their necks. For the eyes and nose I used sticky back pearls that I colored with sharpies. The heart buttons were in my stash and dressed them up a little with some red and white twine. Quick, easy, and oh SO cute!
I sent all 4 off to school with my youngest for her and her friends to decorate their dorms for the holidays...they all loved them! (along with all the treats I sent along too, I'm sure!!) Now that they're gone though, I kinda miss them and am thinking I might need to make a few more! :0)
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Tuesday! :0)
