Easy & Adorable: No Sew Sock Snowman

What a great craft to do with the kiddos!

Finally, a craft that combines my love of all things winter and a use for all of the socks missing their mate! Seriously though, these no sew snowmen are adorable and super easy to make! This would be a fun craft to do with kids or to give as a gift. Since they are filled with rice, these cute snowmen could double as a hand warmer – just throw them in the microwave for a few seconds, and you’ve got a nice warm snowman! (WARNING: Do not try with real snowmen. Results may vary). See the process in the video below, and get the full supply list and instructions beneath the video.
