Oooooooooo it is that time of year ….HERE COME THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS (some later than others)!!! What better way is there to decorate than using socks?! Yep, ya read it right….socks, good ole holey socks….HOLEY CHRISTMAS SOCKS ARE EVEN BETTER!! Hehe, ok before ya just skip out on me, let me esssplain. I love colorful socks, especially festive socks like Halloween and Christmas! But after a while, like any adored pair of socks, you always get those stinking holes in the toes! Ugh. Sooo not having the heart to throw those out either (yes, yes, I know, I have an issue with this) I searched around for the best way to repurpose or upcycle these socks. They still have some life left in them so I wanted something good.
So I did my usual…Pinterest browsing (one of my fav past times). I loved a lot of the cute ideas that I came across…coffee mug warms, leg warms for kids, hand cuffs, sock monkeys, sock snake, puppets…..the list goes on. Then all of a sudden I found the one….I was completely me….easy and cheap….hahaha!! A no-sew wreath made from socks.
I made a few changes to accommodate my taste and supplies that I had. To do mine….all I needed was a pool noodle (that I picked up from dollar tree), duck tape, scissors, and my holey socks!!
After I decided on which socks I wanted to use for my wreath, all I needed to do was cut off the toe portion of each sock so I can just slide them onto the noodle. Once that is done and I have put them onto the noodle I just needed to tape the edges of the noodle together so I can form the circle. My kind of project….SUPER QUICK!!! Now that it is “sealed” I just need to fix up my socks to have it appear as I would like!!! Dug around in my ribbon basket to find a scrap piece of ribbon to hang it up!! Oh….it turned out so much better than I expected!!! Now I can continue to enjoy my festive socks!!! What makes it even better (besides being easy and cheap), if my taste changes, all I need to do is cut the tape and change them out!!!
