Baby sock bouquet

Here is the other project I did for the baby shower today - baby sock bouquet. Materials:

5-6 pairs of socks
Floral wire
Floral tape
Tissue paper
Fake leaves
Ribbon of choice

Start by rolling the socks, from the bottom up. Then carefully pull the tops over the bottoms to get what looks like the top of the flower. Taking the wire, bend a hook on the end and place it inside the "flower."

Using some floral tape, wrap the sock around the wire until secure and continue the floral tape down the wire, adding leaves where desired.

Wrap in tissue paper, or a cloth diaper, or other fun fabric and tie with a ribbon.
Done. :)
This was another fun one to do - and handy. Little babies always need socks. :)
