So... I dug around the house and found several old tube socks that we were going to donate. Amy was right, Target carries a ton of cute ankle socks in all sorts of patterns for just $1. I used my little girls' hair elastic which worked great and we just needed a few buttons, googly eyes, beans/rice and we were good to go!
Here are the inspiration snowmen from here:
Here are our snowmen!
10 little snowmen in all!
We had a great time and I just can't help but smile when I look at these lil' guys. Seriously, super easy, fast, affordable and you get a great finished product. They make wonderful gifts! Click here for the how-to.
Here are a few more pictures of our day:
Our supplies. Socks, elastic ties and rice/beans.
Of course, working over a rimmed baking sheet helps to keep all the rice and beans contained!
