A bouquet of
baby sock roses is a cute pressie for expecting mothers and baby showers. You
can never have enough socks for the little one, as they get lost or they double
as hand gloves. A fun DIY job that has a great wow factor when you’re
presenting it, instead of wrapping your gifts in paper or a gift bag. A few
rolls & twists and you will have made a pile of rose buds to make your
bouquet! Create some for even a gift topper, corsage, or fill a small
bucket/flower pot. This could make a great baby shower decoration
- Baby socks. (8 pair of infant socks to make
(matching or contrast)
sticks for stems
for arrangement (e.g. bucket, flower pot, vintage baby plant holder,
- Real or silk
flowers or leaves
foam (you know that green stuff you can get it from craft shops)
paper, gift wrap to cover floral foam
- Lift the
cuff & flatten the baby sock
at the toe edge, softly roll to the top of the sock. The roll doesn't need
to be tight.
- Take the
top edge (on the heel side or bottom of the roll as you view the photo
above) and turn it over onto the roll.
- Twiddle a
little with the shape until you have your desired flower form. Gently pull
the center to form a longer center or smooch it a little for a flatter
blossom. Whatever structure you want really!
I reckon you
could try this project with some baby bibs or face towel even. You can replace
the tissue paper with Get creative!
