I don’t know about the rest of you mommies, but after I had my daughter, my personal appearance & sometimes my hygiene kind of went out the window. After her birth, I would go days without being able to shower, I did my makeup less frequently, I bit off all of my long beautiful nails & I found myself wearing old grungy clothes. Many of my clothing pieces such as bras & socks were falling apart, but I continued to wear them.
I found myself in a pair of my old holey socks the other day. Check out the chipped off nail polish on the toe that is popping out. Classy!
I decided it was time to retire these socks, but these days I have a hard time throwing away anything. It seems that everything has a crafty possibility. Ask my husband, we have random empty containers & crafting odds & ends all over the house. We planned to turn this sad pair of socks into sock puppets. We decided to continue with our fall & Halloween themes & make a scarecrow and a ghost.
What you will need:
A pair of socks
Colored foam sheets
Rubber Band, yarn or string
Follow steps 1-3 from above.
Mai had fun with her new scary puppets. “Booooooooooooo, mama. I scare you.” She asked me for a Jack-O-Lantern too. It’s time to dig through my sock drawer & look for more socks with holes.

Ok, you made me smile at the intro there and yes during the early colicky baby days, as well as adding Lily only 16 months after I definitely looked less then put together and fashionable. So, I am sure I had some holes in my socks and undergarments, as well. That said, I do so love this craft and definitely loved seeing Mai’s smiling face at the end there, too (think is fair to say that she enjoyed this one, too). Pinning and adding to my list of to try with the girls now 😉
I still have a difficult time showering because my hubby works so much. I have to wake extra early to squeeze one in most times. Mai did like these. She was making growling and booing sounds with them and trying to scare me. Lol!
I am in the same boat…. it is tough to get into something other than yoga pants! My hubby works a ton too, I started just bringing my 3 and 1 year old into the shower with me and put the newborn in a bouncy seat. Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t be able to shower between weekends.
Way to put those old socks to good use!
Thanks Emma! 🙂
