February 12th, 2013 posted by Stephanie Burgett

Beanie Snowman This simple snowman can be made with minimal supplies and costs almost nothing. Even for the beginner crafter, this project should be complete in under 30 minutes! (Special thanks to our friend Birdiekity for the use of her photo)

You will need

plain white sock (child’s size) tea bags 3/4 cup raw rice rubberband Fiberfil black pom pom black marker orange felt or foam blush and a Q-tip buttons (optional) scrap piece of flannel or other material

Instructions

Tea dye the sock for a country look by dipping sock in strained tea and soaking for ten minutes. Another option (pictured here) is to turn the sock inside out first to give it a terry cloth look. Fill the toe part of the sock with 3/4 cup raw rice. If you want to spend a little more money you can use 1 cup polypellets. Tie a rubberband around the sock (just above rice fill). This makes the body. In the next part of the sock put a medium size ball of Fiberfil. Tie a rubberband around sock just above the Fiberfil part. (This makes the head). Now turn the opening of the sock down partway over the head (this will be the hat) Glue a black pom pom to the small hole on top. Use a black marker to make eyes and a mouth. You can use orange paint or a small triangle of orange craft foam for the nose (put the triangle sideways) I use a q-tip with a little bit of blush on to give him rosy cheeks. For the body part either glue buttons three in a row vertically or use a black marker for this. Tie a scrap piece of flannel LOOSELY around neck part for the scarf. This is an easy project and you can make quite a few for little money.
