Use two pairs of striped tube stocks and a wreath base to create a fun and colorful sock wreath. Finish off this wreath craft with a large ribbon and hang from a door for perfect dollar store decorating. This entire wreath cost $3!

  • Two pair of striped Tube Socks!

    Wreath Base


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 Socks in Half

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

Got news for the designer of this craft. The socks that are shown in the picture are not tube socks. But never the less this is a cute project. I've seen some colorful kids socks that would be great on this.

This is a wonderful and easy craft idea for the elderly. I work with the elderly that have dementia. This would stimulate them, and give them pleasure especially if they gave it away as a gift. Just think, use Christmas colors as well. :)

I love this idea! You could use, used socks that have a hole in the toe all you really need is the top part of the sock. I am going to make one and put in my wash room. I may put a little sign on it to say something like- wash day, or this is where unmatched socks go, or laundry day or many other sayings.

What I really love about this is it's ease. Something really cool and inexpensive anyone can make. You don't have to be "crafty" or have lots of stuff on hand. Just 2 inexpensive items. Cool....

Can you imagine this wreath with Christmas socks or any or holiday colors. I think this is a very clever idea. Thank you for sharing this wonderful wreath, can't wait to try it.
