DIY Crazy socks for kids – mix-and-match trend in carnival disguise
Accessories like a hat, a crown or a mustache are part of a cool carnival costume. From now on, the socks also play an important role in putting together the outfit. There is a mixed-and-match trend which means that you wear two different socks. For example, one sock has a bee print, the other is decorated with beehive patterns. Craft enthusiasts have developed the idea further and wear two socks with monster heads at various carnivals. The “monsters” pictured above can be made in less than an hour.
DIY Crazy socks for kids – materials
If you want to make crazy socks with monster heads, then you need an hour and the following materials:
Knee-length white socks
Felt in green, orange and yellow
Sewing thread light green, white and dark green
White buttons in different sizes
Fabric with checked pattern
DIY Crazy socks for kids- step by step instructions
The first thing you need to do is make a bow tie out of the fabric with the checked print – the instructions in four simple steps can be found in the photo above. You can sew or glue the ends of the bow tie together.
Use the buttons as a template and cut out three circles from the felt – a yellow, orange and a green circle. Make sure that the circles are slightly larger than the buttons.
Sew the buttons with the light green thread at the top of the sock. Optionally, you can glue the felt details and buttons together first.
Make a yarn pom-pom now. First, wrap the wool threads around your index finger and small finger, wrap a wool thread around the middle and tighten. Gently knot the threads and cut the loop ends.
Sew the finished pom-pom over the largest button. The pom-pom imitates hair.
Cut out the mouth from dark green felt and sew it on the sock.
Glue colorful feathers between the buttons. The first monster sock is ready!
For the second monster sock you can make “hair” from cotton and glue it on the sock. In this case, you do not need a pom-pom. Using a cookie cutter, cut out a heart from the green felt and glue it to the sock as a nose. Finished!
