Wool Sock Christmas Wreath

December 18th, 2013 | Christmas Decor, Crafts, Learn How, Seasonal, Wreaths

I love wool socks but for some reason the toes seem to wear so easily. I hate to throw anything I could create with away (I might be border-line craft hoarder), so I came up with this Wool Sock Christmas Wreath to give them a cozy new life!

Use up an old pair of woolies with this easy #Christmas wreath idea!

For this wool sock Christmas wreath project you will need:

  • Straw wreath form (or a pool noodle one like in this wreath post)
  • 2 wool socks, ribbon of choice (mine is May Arts striped cotton)
  • duct tape
  • plastic wrap
  • hot glue gun
  • *Optional- Wood veneer “Merry” (from Michaels)
  • Christmas felt banner.

wrap form in plastic wrap and cut to get socks onto wreath. First thing you’ll need to wrap your straw wreath form in plastic wrap, this will make sliding your socks on much easier, and keep any stray straw from poking through the socks. Next, using a knife cut the wreath straight through. Cut an opening in the toe of both socks (if they have holes this shouldn’t be a problem!) Slide the each sock onto the form toe first, meeting in the middle. Tuck one toe under the other and flip the top one back under, and hot glue in place.

I then sewed (which hot gluing would be easier) the heel and toes to the back side to make the wool smooth on the front side. I added a ribbon to hide where the two socks meet at the top, and if I would have seen this sock wreath from Northstory sooner, I would have used her yarn idea to hide the bottom seam!

You can then embellish with ribbon and add something to middle of choice! I added the wood veneer “merry” I found at Michaels, and felted a little Christmas banner to go below. I tied both on with May Arts red bakers twine.
