Sock Wreaths

When I saw this adorable Dollar Store craft over at Blue Cricket Designs, I knew I had to give it a whirl...
I gathered my materials: A sharp knife, a wreath form, and multi-pack socks in Christmas colors (all from the Dollar Store!). I followed the directions posted over at Blue Cricket, and came up with this...

And then, as it often happens...I couldn't stop. On this one, I cut both ends of the sock and tied a leftover sock into a "bow."
Can you just imagine the possibilities for all those hole-y socks now? Total cost for this craft: $2.50 per wreath (and an extra pair of socks leftover.) Not bad!
Enjoy your Monday!

So cute, and I have a 15-year-old pair of Christmas socks my Grandma gave me before she passed away. I'm thinking this would be a nice way to cherish and display them instead keeping them in my sock drawer. Thank you. :)

I would like to make one like this but use it as a gift with socks that can be used. I imagine you had cut all of these to put onto the form but maybe they could be wraped around the form without cutting them. It would probably take about 8 or 10 pair of socks though. What do you think.
