Snowmen’s Heads Are Full Of Fluff
Now that my other sock craft has posted, I can share the second half of the sock. You get two crafts out of one sock. I also used some of the same leftovers from the snowmen socks, and I added some fabric, black buttons and pompoms. Again, they are a bright and colorful decor item that helps perk up your winter decor around the house. These snowmen’s heads are full of fluff!
Come on and let me show you..
Remember how we cut the sock? The top cuff part was cut off, and we cut off the heel and tossed that. Now, we are using the toe part.
I had a time trying to find plain white socks. I recommend using guy socks. Although the ladies Hanes I got were super duper soft.
Take that toe part, and stitch through with a needle and floss- don’t use thread its’ too thin.
Again, stuff with fiberfill first. then add some rice to the bottom and pull on both sides of the thread to tighten.
double knot that sucker tight so none of the rice falls out.
Take the same cut off toe part of the colored socks, and put that over the top of the sock toe. That is the hat. I folded up the end and hot glued it to secure it.
Next, take some Sculpey clay, form in into a cone with a flat end, and run a knife over the cone to make carrot like lines. Bake according to directions and cool.
I sized mine to about 1 to 1.25 inches.
Hot glue on two button eyes and the clay nose. Then chalk the cheeks with some pink chalk- blush also works if you don’t have chalk.
I cut some fabric about 18 inches long, folded it triple so the edges were in the back center, then hot glued them with thin lines of fabric adhesive. When dry I hot glued the top edge of the fabric onto the snowman, at his neck point. I then folded over the edges at the meeting point. I took the excess I cut off , tied it into a knot and hot glued that to the overlap point. I put my snowman head on the table and made sure the fabric scarf scrunched up nicely and added a few hot glue dots to secure it into place. Now he sits nicely.
For his mouth, I used several big black buttons to show off his stellar smile. Hot glued into place.
And lastly, I added a pompom to the top of his hat. They all turned out very unique and each one has it’s own personality.
