Guest Post: Beth's Sock Wreath

hello ladies (and gents)! i'm elizabeth from until only love remains. i am so tickled & honored to be sharing with you one of my favorite DIY's this year on sweet betsy's blog! i hope that in the middle of all the holiday madness you can find some time to yourself & pour into those around you. maybe this sock wreath can be the perfect activity for some alone time or a great sisterhood gathering event! either way, enjoy!!
this is my first Christmas as a Mayberry and my first Christmas "on my own." my mom didn't pull out the boxes & boxes of decorations and make me help set up my home. she set up here home (and gave me some leftovers) but i was forced to begin the Mayberry Christmas collection. really, it is one of the most exciting things ever but Bruce and i have a small (small) Christmas budget especially because i want to put most of it into GIVING.
SOOOO... like most of us who are on a budget, i browsed though pinterest looking for some crafty crafts. this inspired me. so i made it. and i am sharing it with you!

ONE: gather Christmas socks. used or new it does not matter as long as they are clean! i got mine real cheap at walmart. 
TWO: buy a styrofoam wreath
THREE: cut an opening in the styrofoam
FOUR: turn the socks inside out and cut off the seam
FIVE: turn socks right side out again and slide onto the wreath
SIX: once all socks are scrunched on, hot glue the styrofoam shut
SEVEN: spread out scrunched socks so that they cover the entire wreath
EIGHT: make sure no styrofoam is showing and that the tops overlap all the bottoms
NINE: add a bow. make one yourself or buy it all the dollar store. i chose the later.
TEN: look how cute!
now your turn! if i can do it, you sure as heck can!
 ps: it only took me 20 minutes TOPS! #ilovefastcrafts

  1. This is a really cool ide and I love how it turned out - I would have never guessed how easy it would be - I would have assumed I needed to sew tubes or something crazy
