Affordable Homemade Christmas Gift
Adequate, this is most likely my favorite craft I’ve made all season. First, when you consider that they are super easy to make, and second, because they’re lovely.
I’ve been which means to make some sort of snowman craft for a at the same time, however sadly i couldn’t determine a good design. To this point I’ve made all my crafts with stuff I’ve had lying across the house, so my vacation craft rate was once nearly nothing. Cute snowmen, however, require blocks of timber or portions of styrofoam or paint or fabric and time and effort and money.
I was debating between making a snowman out of a wire hanger or rolls of fabric when a idea struck me: socks! Socks are the excellent medium for snowmen! I got to work.
For this craft, you can desire a pair of historical socks which can be crew length, or longer.
First, cut off the highest of the sock from the foot.
Flip the sock inside out and fasten a rubber band tightly to the highest of the sock. Then flip the sock proper-part out again.
Fill the sock with rice. Make certain to p.C. It down as you go so the sock gets a quality circular base.
Rubber band the highest of the sock closed and put a further rubber band three/four of the best way to the highest for the top of your snowman.
Now, enhance! Tie a scarf round your snowman’s neck and add eyes, nose, and buttons. I used map pins for my eyes. Lamentably, I didn’t have any black ones, so I coloured white ones with sharpie and caught them in.
Use the toe of your cut socks to fashion a stocking cap.
That you could both sew or glue in your buttons, and add gildings – wire, bows, ribbons, and so forth – as needed.
That is one of these quick and handy craft – 10 minutes tops – that it will be easy to create a whole family of snowmen on your mantle!
