I am so in the crafty mood lately. I saw a tutorial on Suzanne Dean's website http://www.tinybitzofme.blogspot.com/2013/11/meet-my-snow-people.html and just had to make some myself.
These little guys are made out of the old socks. I used my husband's crew socks from my missing sock basket. The bodies are made out of the leg portion of the sock and the hats are made out of the toe.
I made all of these in one hour and they only cost me $2.00. That was for 2 bags of rice at the Dollar Store. My Christmas crafting has turned me in to a Dollar Store junkie. It is so much fun just to walk up and down the aisles and look for things I can repurpose for the holidays. You have to take your time and use your imagination, but knowing everything is a dollar brings out the adventure in you.
I already gave these to my 5 grans. The girls all loved them and made the appropriate "Awwwww she's so cute". The boys (ages 19 & 12) looked at them and laughed. They never know what their Nana will come up with. I knew they would react like that, but I also knew that they would be mad if I didn't make them one. Something about being Nana's favorite. LOL
I'm entering this in Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday Challenge. That's a place for nosy people to see what other nosy people have going on in their lives. Pop on over and check it out. Maybe you will even do a post so I can see inside your world.
