Baby socks. A mommy can never have too many pairs. Maybe because one can’t help but spend money on something so cute and little, or maybe because baby can never have enough fuzzies to keep their little toes warm. And then there is the case of the washer and dryer eating socks, and who really knows what to do with the infamous lost sock?
Mud Pie knows the sock game all too well. In fact, we are such big supporters of it, that we donate 10 cents to the March of Dimes for each pair of socks purchased. So whether you purchase new socks because one too many have gone missing, or you purchase socks as a gift for the mommy-to-be, you help us support the fight to end premature birth.
Now, back to the never having enough pairs of socks talk. Baby or adult, socks are a necessity. But what other uses do baby socks have besides cute little feet pictures and putting them on your dogs paws for all the giggles? We have rounded up numerous creative uses for baby socks.
Décor and gift all in one! It’s a win-win when hosting a baby shower for the mommy-to-be. Not to mention, it is SO easy. All you need is string, clothespins and baby socks. Simply drape the string on a mantel, on the wall, on a table…anywhere you see fit! Then clip the baby socks with clothespin to the string. After the baby shower is over, let the mommy-to-be take the socks for her future little.
This is a fun and unique idea for baby showers. Similar to a flower corsage, and just as beautiful. You simply roll the baby sock up and use wire to create a corsage. You can find examples and how to’s on Mud Pie’s Pinterest: HERE & HERE.
A fun way to gift a little something extra with your present for the mommy-to-be. Instead of using a big bow, or gift tag, tie on a pair of baby socks with a small note tucked inside. You can even use ribbon to create a big bow around it.
This one is fun! Whether you are a future mommy wanting to display your big announcement to the neighbors, or the hostess of a baby shower, a baby wreath is an easy decoration. All you need is a foam wreath, scissors, baby socks and ribbons. You can also add diapers to it! Examples HERE & HERE.
This is for all those lost socks. Or even as a baby shower gift for all the guests! It’s easy and very useful. Take a baby sock and fill it with your favorite smelling potpourri. Sew up the top and voila! You have a air freshener to put in your clothes drawers, in your car, in the baby’s nursery and anywhere else you see fit.
Similar to the baby corsage. We’re sure many of you have seen the diaper cakes. Imagine the same concept with baby socks. They can be a gift for the mommy-to-be, a table center piece at baby showers or even for maternity pictures – how cute! Find out how to make a baby sock bouquet HERE & HERE.
