Sock Wreath on Studio 5

Last Week I went on a local TV show Studio 5 and demonstrated how to make my super fun Sock Wreath! I was asked to be on the program two days before my appearance so with little prep time I knew I needed a relatively simple project that wouldn’t need tons of prep with lots of steps! I immediately thought of the Sock Wreath so I sent off my email saying “Yes! I could make it!” and off to the dollar store I went ready to collect my supplies!

Well wouldn’t you know! Three Dollar Stores were completely out of long knee high socks! YIKES!!!! What on earth was I to do! As I was starting to panic I did tell myself that I bought the original socks that I used probably in the dead of winter! Oh great! This is going to be a disaster! It’s 90 degrees out side! Of course I won’t be able to find knee high socks!

So just before I gave in and had to buy six pairs of regular striped socks (which would still work great by the way!) I thought to myself “Self! Let’s try Target real fast and see what happens! Maybe you’ll find some clearance tights and all will be well in the world!”

Well holy cow TARGET!!! If ever I loved you more I would not be able to pin point the day! There I was surrounded by sock love! Clearance Socks dripping from the end caps! Stripes and Argyle and Harleqin oh my! Socks for as little as $1! All was well and a shopping I went!

So this near disaster of a project actually fell in to place quite well! So hit up Target and score some amazing socks! They do carry knee socks all year round! Good to know! Good to know!

    Great craft project! Can't wait to make some. I use the Target socks to make leg warmers for my daughter to wear over her tights for dance class.

    That is the first time I've seen a sock wreath and I must say, it is not what I was thinking :-) It looks so much better than what was in my mind :-)

    I LOVE this idea! I have a bajillion baby socks lying around that I can't bear to part with (not sure why) and think this would be an adorable way to make a keepsake for his sock when his feet were teeny tiny! Thanks for such great inspiration!
