Sock Wreath




The Dollar Store is a treasure trove of goodness and today’s project proves it! I’ve had both of these supplies for well over two years! While on my Spending Strike I had to get creative so while rumaging through my craft room I wondered if these two Dollar Store purchases would play well together! And the answer was YES!!!


This entire wreath cost $3! You’ll need a 12″ Foam Wreath form and two pair of striped Tube Socks!
Cut your socks at the heal and at the toe.


Next cut the longest section of your sock in half again. You only need to do this step if you’re using more then one style of sock. In my case I uses two different striped pairs of socks and wanted to alternate them so I needed to create even sections.

Cut the Foam Wreath form in order to make a place where we can slide our socks on.


Gather your sock section and slide it on!

Once you’ve put on all your sections just spread the socks evenly to make sure it covers the entire wreath!

And you’re done! Tie a ribbon on top to hang it and pat yourself on the back for marring two random Dollar Store Items to create something great!




And the next time you get on your kids or husbands backs for not picking up their socks just threaten them that if they don’t pick them up they may end up on a wreath!

    Okay. I am not a wreath girl, generally. This one, however, I adore! Those very same socks are sitting in my little one's sock drawer right now. I am sooo tempted to go nab them and do this. Although, I may have to seriously defend my actions as they are her most favorite socks. Hhmmm…. ;)
    Thanks for this. Such fun!

    I would also suggest using the foam pool noodles that are sold at the Dollar Tree. Thread on the socks, pull the noodle into a circle shape and duct tape the noodle together and spread the socks over the duct tape to hide. That would save having to cut the foam wreath. I used pool noodles as a wreath base for a wedding and they worked well and were bigger and less expensive than the usual foam wreaths.

  52. 52

    Becca, what size frame did you use here in this pic for the wreath to sit into? Thanks!

    Wow! Thanks.. Found your post through Pinterest and I love this idea. I plan to try it with the sleeves of a chunkilicious natural color sweater I got at Goodwill for a song … Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love this. Although the Dollar Stores around me do not carry the form wreaths. But that is so ok. I have one question….After putting the socks on, do you tape the wreath back together? And if you wanted to hang without a ribbon, what would you suggest? Thanks.

  55. 55

    Take your time and effort in deciding on a good material a roofing

    energy efficiency and autonomy, unique and advanced

    Common reasons for damaging the nose include when the nose is way
