Don’t you just love the fall? It is my favorite time of year, the weather is perfectly cool and breezy, signaling that the holidays are coming. One of the best parts is that people start really getting into decorating, with everyone showing off their style and love for the season.
Check out these beautiful wreaths worthy of any door in your home.
Happy Saturday! Today is a great day to spend some time with your family and create something unique together!

What You Need:
1 white sock
1 sock in color for the hat
rubber bands (or thread)
markers or paint
orange pom poms
Start by filling your white sock with rice. You will need a hefty amount (we were quite surprised to see how much rice can go into one sock).
Once you are happy with the amount (and size) of your sock snowman tie the top with the rubber band.
Take another rubber band and place in the middle – more to the upper side – of the rice filled sock to form the head shape.
Now glue the buttons to the bottom side by using a glue gun (glue dots do a fairly good job too).
Draw the mouth and eyes with a black marker or with black paint.
We also added pink cheeks (Crayola washable paints were great for the job). We made the nose out of two orange pom poms – turned out amazing.
Add a ribbon for the scarf – we fount that glue dots and glue gun work best for ribbons, while other glues kind of fail miserably. You can cut off excess white sock (or you can tuck it in the hat we will be making next).
Cut the colored sock (we cut the foot part, without heel). Roll it a bit and place it on the head of your snowman. You can leave it as it is or you can secure it with some glue.
Winter is on it’s way and you can feel it in the air. Cuddling by the fire, hot chocolate, holiday movies… it is truly the best time of the year! People are very much into decorating for the occasion and some of their ideas are magical.
