DIY No-Slip Socks

Something keeps eating the socks at our house.  The dryer, the toy bins, the giant man-eating spiders under the stairs?  Take your pick.  My kids needed new socks.  And may I just say that it is impossible to find boy socks on sale ~ especially compared to the oodles of marked down girls stuff!!? Ha. Anyway these were super fun and easy to create.  I'm pretty sure that Cheri at I Am Momma Hear Me Roar did something like this awhile back {she always comes up with the best stuff}.
You'll need some clean socks, puffy fabric paint and a bottle of glue.
TIP:  pull the sock over the bottle to create a flat surface to paint on. 
The Lightening McQueen fan was pretty pumped about these ones.  Now he wants me to crochet him a Lightening McQueen hat.  He keeps slipping red yarn into our shopping cart.  Dude, I just learned to crochet a week ago!  lol 
Super fun and easy right?!

If you want to get in on the crocheting craziness join me on Facebook or Twitter.

  3. What a great idea! Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. These are fantastic!! I love your designs!

    I featured this on my blog today, feel free to stop by & check it out :)

  5. I have been just using a marker to dot my boys' socks, but I love this idea!! I hate,hate, hate folding boys socks and trying to figure out which belongs to each. This way they could match it themselves and think it was fun! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. GREAT idea!! I am going to have to try this! Great way to seperate multiple boys sox OR keep pairs! Thanx for the tip!

  7. Are they really grippy though? I just feel like they'd be uncomfortable in shoes.....totally worth a shot tho for my baby starting to walk

  8. Amy they are grippy at first but after repeated washing the paint starts to flatten out :) The boys wear them in shoes no problem ~ the paint is pretty soft and flexible.

  9. I just did this and love my results, I linked back to this post on my blog here, I did mine slightly differently, check it out!
