I wanted to save some of my little girls first socks, but I didn't just want to keep them in a drawer, so I figured out a way to keep them and show them off. I love the primitive decorations so I decided I would turn her little socks into ornaments for myself and to share with her grandparents.
First, I soak in coffee for about 30 min.
Second, I spread out on aluminum foil and bake in the oven on 200 for 20 to 30 minutes, turning to make sure they dont burn.Then I turn the oven on warm until they dry.
After it is dry, stuff with poly fill
I used the little acrylic paint in barn yard red from walmart.
I got these little tiny buttons at Hobby Lobby and sewed on the front. Then I cut a strip of material to make a loop on the back of the sock to hang it on the tree.
In some of them I put some pine needles ,cinnamon sticks, and small cranberries I got in the floral dept at Hobby Lobby.
Now I have those sweet baby socks as a Christmas keepsake. I will never forget how little those cute feet were.
I am a stay at home mom of two angels, Casey and Mayci.I'm also a home schooling mom of my now 6th grader. I love being with my babies! I married my high school sweetheart and we have been married 18 years. I love making junk look like good stuff. I dont like new things, I love junk treasures! I don't have much time anymore to do these things, so I enjoy looking at everyone elses projects and dream. I love my life, I feel so blessed!
