To make him you will need: 1 white sock, 1 colored sock, ribbon or scrap fabric, buttons. wiggly eyes, black sharpie, a pink sharpie, decorative pom poms, rice, and orange pipe clean along with scissors, a rubber band or thread, and a hot glue gun.
Begin by filling the sock with rice. You will need 2-3 cups. Once the sock starts to look full. Rubber band the top or with thread close off the top. Then with a second rubber band or thread create a head by dividing out the sock into two pieces. Cut the second colored sock at the foot leaving out the heal and roll up to create a hat. Roman didn't follow instructions and used the heal which worked out OK too. Hot glue the pom pom on top. Roman also didn't want his snow man to be solid white so he slipped the leg portion of the sock over the body; otherwise the snowman would be white. Hot glue on the buttons and the eyes and with the sharpie make a smile and cheeks. Use snip off a portion of the pipe cleaner and insert it where the nose would go. Tie the ribbon around the neck and if you want it to be extra secure you can hot glue it also into place. He had a blast making this adorable little guy. I couldn't bare to put him away with the other Christmas decorations. Well, I better go pick up the girls from school before the snow hits. Stay warm!
