5 ways socks can give your Christmas a personal touch
Posted 19th November 2015 by SockShop
Whether you’re hanging them ready for presents from Santa or are looking forward to getting a new pair on Christmas day, socks have a long and illustrious history with the festive period.
Here are 5 ways socks can add a personal touch to your Christmas festivities…
1. Homemade advent calendars
The excitement of advent calendars becomes somewhat lessened when you start to realise that it's going to be a chocolate everyday (well, maybe not depending on how much you love chocolate).
3. Outfits in Nativity play
There’s a good chance your little ones will be sheepishly approaching you to ask if you could make them an outfit for their role in the nativity play – a day before it’s going on. This is where socks are a life saver.
You can also create amazing, cosy looking decorations with socks. Smaller, festive socks can be given a candy cane and hung on the tree while larger ones can be used to hold holly twigs.
Or, you could go a step further and transform old white socks into cute little snowmen. Simply stuff with paper or cotton wool until just over half full and then use string to tie it off. You’ve got your body.
Add some more stuffing, but not as much, and tie off again at the top of the sock – this is your head. Decorate with buttons for eyes (or simply draw on with a marker pen) and a piece of scrap material for a scarf.
|5. Storing baubles
Finally, when Christmas is over for another year (or 9 months), it’s time to pack away your decorations.
