Roses are nice, but sometimes you just want a new pair of socks. For Valentine's Day, we created this cute, simple craft using just socks, rubber bands and dowels. A sock bouquet may not smell (hopefully) but it is a great gift for the person who knocks your socks off!
You will need:
Dowels, wire, or faux flower stems to hold the sock flowers
Rubber bands (If you want to get fancy, you can use colored rubber bands in red or pink to match your socks.)
Socks, any length
To make your sock roses, begin with a flat sock and a wire or dowel “stem.” Wrap the sock around your stem, starting with the toe. The stem should go about halfway up into the flower.
When you are finished wrapping, adjust the sock to look a bit more like a real flower, by pulling out the top petals and scrunching the bottom.
Finally, wrap a rubber band around the base of the flower. If you want, you can fold the outer bottom edge of the sock up to cover the rubber band.
Done! Repeat with the remaining socks, then add a few faux or real flowers to complete the bouquet.
