Use these easy peasy sock snowman instructions to create dozens of snowmen ornaments in less than 15 minutes! You don’t need fancy materials to make your own sock snowman! You can use really cute socks, in all kinds of colors or socks in “Christmasy” themes. And you can make these little sock crafts in various sizes. If you don’t have poly-fill for the filling you can use rice and use these as nice little fabric or paper weights. How cool is that? Also rice would make these more stable if you plan to put the snowman on display on a table or your mantle.

You could also add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to the rice filling and use your sock snowman as a deodorizer for the home or your car.

Sock Snowman

sock crafts


  • socks (I used 3 pairs for 3 snowmen)
  • scissors
  • thread
  • polyfill or rice
  • needle (or glue for smaller kids)
  • buttons
  • pins

[amazon-related-products keywords=”product suggestions keywords”]


  • Cut one sock at the heel.


  • Fill the “foot” part with polyfill to the top.


  • Grab some thread and wrap around the top to close the sock.
  • Decide how big the body will be and separate the head from the body with thread.


  • Hand stitch the buttons onto the body (if smaller kids are making this, use glue instead)
  • Add pins as eyes and nose (or hand stitch with colored thread; I didn’t have black pins so I used thread).


  • Use the rest of the sock to make the hat. Wrap some thread around the cut end and pull the other end over the head.
  • Use a full sock as a scarf.
  • If using polyfill, your snowman might have troubles standing so use 4 pins as “legs”. Or here’s an idea that occured to me after I’ve finished my snowmen: right before filling with polyfill, turn the sock wrong side out and wrap some thread around the tip, then turn the sock right side out and proceed as indicated above.
  • And you’re done! Your DIY sock snowman is ready!
