Father's Day Gift Idea: Sock Bouquet!

Father's Day Gift Idea...SOCKS!!!!!
Who Doesn't like getting new socks???
How Does shares a cute tutorial for making a Sock Bouquet.
I can't wait to make one of these!

You could use this for a guy who wants socks, or you could make a more colourful one for a little girl who’s getting a practical item for a gift- or you could use it for a baby shower.....

Here’s what you need:
- Socks
- safety pins
- wooden dowels or skewers
- a vase
- a ribbon
Start by laying your sock out flat (see the pictures below for a visual) and:  1. Fold the end up.  2. Start rolling, keeping it tight on one end and loose on the other  3. When you get to the bend of the sock, fold it over as shown, to make it straight 4. Keep rolling  5. Fold again as needed, to keep things straight (the folds just make your flower fuller)  6. Voila!

When you’ve created your flower, grab a safety pin to secure it and push the dowel or skewer into the bottom of the flower, to make your stem:
When you’ve completed all of your sock flowers, arrange them in a vase & tie a ribbon around it:
Great idea! Thank You How Does!
