This is a terrific recycled ornament. The snowmen are made from those baby socks that never really get dirty or wear out. A kindergartner can do this with help, but in a group this craft is really better for older kids.

What you'll need

  • White baby sock
  • Batting
  • String
  • Fabric or ribbon
  • Colored baby sock (makes two hats)
  • Glue
  • Buttons
  • Permanent markers
  • Orange pipe cleaner (nose)
  • Any color pipe cleaner (earmuffs)
  • 2 mini pompons
Helpful Tip:

Don't have batting? Use old nylon stockings or cotton.

How to make it

  1. Fill the foot of a white baby sock with batting. Tie shut just above the ankle with string. Trim off the cuff.

  2. Divide the sock ball into body and head by tying a strip of fabric or ribbon (the scarf) around the sock.

  3. To make the hat, gather the colored sock together at the ankle and tie with string. Leave enough string for a hanging loop. Cut off the foot. Roll up the edge of the sock like a stocking cap. Glue or sew on the hat.

  4. Next, glue or sew on buttons. Draw on the eyes and mouth with markers. Cut a 1-inch piece of pipe cleaner and poke it in for the nose. For earmuffs, wrap a piece of pipe cleaner around the head and tuck the ends under the hat rim. Glue on pompons.
