|Although I admit hers looks much more professional than mine, I will boast that I used everything on hand costing me whopping $0!
Here’s what I did:
Searched for a wreath form
Snipped the toe off of each Christmas sock (Please note that none of MyLove’s Christmas socks were harmed in the making of this wreath, as he likes his silly socks!):
Gathered the socks around the pool noodle, formed the noodle into a ring and then taped it:
So quick and easy and in a matter of minutes I was able to fluff them into a wreath! Buttercup loves it and is asking for me to hang it in her room. I’m thinking what a great idea to do with all of the kiddo socks and let them make the wreaths themselves 🙂
And here is the finished wreath!
What do you think?
Okay, looking back at this project I probably would not do it again this year for 2012-although I do think it was a great idea at the time. The reason…there is a major need for socks this time a year, especially with the recent unexpected circumstances such as Hurricane Sandy.
If you have any extras laying around, please send them over to the folks at “Socks for Sandy”
Well, I’m sure the need is for NEW socks, so if you have any to send please keep in mind…
My heart goes out to them as I know what it’s like to have your community hurt by the forceful power of nature as many of our friends lost their homes years ago during Hurricane Ike.
