We suggest you use simple step-by-step video instructions and take a look at a few ideas for creating accessories for this New Year's character. They will be useful for your inspiration.
What do we need?
- white sock (terry socks look beautiful)
- rice, semolina or flour
- clear glue
- beads for eyes
- buttons, threads, bows, pieces of felt, etc. (for decoration)
How to do?
There is no particular wisdom in the process of making a snowman. You just need to cut off a piece of sock, fill the product with cereal, and then tightly tie it in several places. Then it remains only to sew the eyes, make a nose and decorate the assistant Santa Claus to your liking.
If this task seems difficult for you, take a look at step-by-step master classes.

Sock Snowman with Rice
Please note that all decorations are simply tied or glued. If you wish, you can sew them. And it can be done in advance - before filling the sock with cereal.
Put such a snowman on the table or present to your loved ones for the New Year. Holding it in your hands is a pleasure!
Sock snowman with semolina, flour or starch
Take flour only as a last resort, because its particles can fly out through a sock. If there is nothing else at hand, make the sock double.
If you take starch as a filler, a snowman will be pleasantly creaking when you take it in hand. Just like snow!
By the way, this toy can work as an anti-stress. If on the eve of the New Year you have a busy day, be sure to remember this wonderful hand-made article when you return home. If you shake it with your hands, you can calm down pretty quickly.
Sock and cotton snowman
Any of the above workshops can be repeated using cotton wool.If you do not like the idea of filling the toy with cereal, take a cotton wool.
Before using the wool, be sure to fluff it well with your hands, and then stuff the sock in small portions. Just keep in mind that over time, the wool will roll into lumps and will still condense. This means that the toy may lose some form. But if you want to hang snowmen from socks on the Christmas tree, they are not in danger, so they will not be deformed under their own weight.
Decorate the finished toys in different ways. You can cut out small pieces of felt and sew or stick them. You can make a simple and funny snowman hat out of socks of other colors. Buttons and various beads will also go well.
Take a look at some ready-made options. Perhaps you will find here exactly what you really like.
Make a few such snowmen and present them to all your loved ones. It is unlikely that such a cute and pleasant to touch New Year's character will leave someone indifferent.
