How to make a snowman with your own hands
Today's project is dedicated to making a small snowman from a conventional sock. Such a snowman can be used to decorate an interior, a Christmas tree, a festive table for Christmas, or simply to present to someone as a small gift. The project is simple in execution, and the materials (socks and groats) used are in every house. In addition, to make the same snowman with their own hands can each child in just 15 minutes.
You will need:
- white sock;
- filler (any small groats or sintepon / cotton wool);
- dense thread;
- beads or pins with colored heads (marker);
- several buttons;
- a rectangular piece of colored fabric or ribbon (for a scarf);
- needle with thread;
Cut the sock into two pieces so that the heel of the sock remains untouched on one piece (see as shown in the photo). The lower part of the sock (without the heel) is used for the cap, and the upper part is used as the torso for the snowman.
Take the top of the sock and turn it inside out.
With the help of a thread, tightly tie one end of the sock (the heel part is better).
Turn out the workpiece with the bandaged end to the front. It will be something like a bag.
Fill the resulting bag with filler. As a filler, you can use any small croup (for example rice), or a sintepon or cotton wool. By the way, for convenience, you can pull a sock on a scoop of scotch.
Give the body a snowman's shape. The filler should be evenly distributed depending on the proportions of the body.
Tie the top of the thread and cut off its ends.
With the help of a string, tie your neck so that the snowman finds its shape.
Take a rectangular piece of colored fabric (or ribbon) and tie a snowman with a scarf. Scarf is not only an obligatory attribute, but also a decorative element that will hide a thread on the neck.
The cap for the snowman is made from the rest of the sock. Just tuck off the edge several times and put a snowman on your head.
In the middle, glue or sew buttons.
From pins with multi-colored heads, make a snowman's eyes and nose. By the way, the eyes and nose can be simply drawn with a marker, cut out of felt or sew beads.
That's all! Make a whole family of snowmen using different materials, as well as socks of different sizes and colors.
