Easy DIY Sock Octopus – Socktopus
Don’t ask me how it happens, but the socks in my house always seem to go missing eventually. I know I’ve found them stuck in crevices before when cleaning the washing machine, but sometimes it feels like socks will just mysteriously disappear! If you have a pile of unmatched socks sitting somewhere right now, I’m sure you can relate. And that’s why we made this list of creative sock crafts. Turns out, there are tons of uses for old socks – whether you simply don’t wear them anymore, can’t find a match, or even if they have holes in them. There are always new ways to repurpose!
When we first thought about what kinds of things we could make out of old socks, stuffed animals and plush toys came to mind immediately. We feel as though there are just endless possibilities in that department, so we went on the hunt for patterns and tutorials right away! We can’t get over how cute the eyes and tentacles are! This is something the kids can help with, and the design of your sock will determine how your socktopus turns out!
