2 DIY SOCKS YOU NEED TO MAKE FOR YOUR TOOTSIES THIS XMAS!
Socks are such a staple at Christmas, I really don’t think that there has ever been a Christmas in my life when I didn’t receive socks as a present and I am totally ok with that! I love socks, especially the warm and cosy kind but most of all socks that look cute are the best! I feel like now, more than ever socks are becoming a really big thing in fashion (we’re looking at you Happy Socks!) and I thought it would be super fun to design a couple of pairs this year!
There are 2 different designs to make completely for free to help make your own! Whether you’re gifting them to friends, your bridesmaids or just to yourself there’s no denying that these socks are beyond cute! We have a cute cactus print or for something really simple and fun a gold polka design! It’s totally up to you what colour socks you go for but we decided on a shade of pink and a white pair for the gold polka dots. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own…
YOU WILL NEED:
Plain cotton socks // Cactus design // An Iron // Gold glitter iron on // Green glitter iron on // A Cricut Explore //
FOR THE POLKA DOT SOCKS
Simply create a circle shape in your Cricut design space (I sized the circles 1 inch in diameter) and load in your gold iron on into the machine. Allow the machine to cut it out then peel away the negative space leaving only the polka dots. Heat up your iron and iron on the dots, varying the placement as you go, making sure that you cover the entire of the socks. Super simple!
FOR THE CACTUS
Another simple one here, you’ll want to upload the cactus design to your Cricut design space then cut that out with your green iron on. Then, when you’re ready iron on all of your cacti to the socks. How glitzy and fun do they look with that green glitter?!
So what do you guys think? Would you ever make some handmade socks for Christmas? I’m going to be wearing these beauts with pride all year long! They’re just too pretty to give away! Don’t forget, you can see more of our DIYs here! xx
