Sock Snakes

Craft Projects, Recycled, Textile & Fiber

Activity Overview

Recycle old socks and tights and create these fun stuffed animal snakes. You can use any type of sock or tights but if you happen to have striped or patterned socks, I think these add a fun and vibrant look to your stuffed toy.

This craft is easy to make and suitable for all ages to make. If you are making this craft with a child under the age of 3 however, you may want to consider either drawing on the eyes with a sharpie marker or using a needle and thread to sew eyes directly onto the sock, as buttons can pose a choking hazard.

Materials Needed

  • An old long sock or the leg cut off of a pair of tights
  • Cotton Stuffing, tissue paper or paper towels
  • Buttons
  • Stiff Felt
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon or a rubber band

How to Make It

  1. Stuff a knee sock or a the leg from a pair of old tights with the stuffing of your choosing. As listed above, if you do not have cotton batting on hand, then you can also use tissue paper, paper towels, and other soft materials that could be used for stuffing.
  2. Use a piece of ribbon or a rubber band to cinch the open end of the snake.
  3. Cut a fork tongue shape out of stiffened felt and use your hot glue gun or a needle and thread to adhere the tongue to the front underside right at the tip of the toe of the sock to form the snake's tongue.
  4. Use a glue gun or needle and thread to fasten the two buttons to the top front of the snake's head for the eyes.
