Sock Corsage Tutorial

Last week I showed you how I make my diaper cakes.
There are TONS of great ideas out there for diapers cake.
My way just happens to be one of many.

Well, here is my version of the sock corsage.
The first one I made I made for a friend having a boy,
so it was pretty simple and only had two flowers.
I made this one for a friend having a girl,
and I wanted to make it a little more realistic,
so I added extra leaves and flowers!

What you need:
baby socks (2 or 3 pairs)
floral wire
floral tape
fake flowers/leaves

Start by rolling the pair of socks from the toe to the top,
roll at a little bit of an angle.
Then I sorta cuffed the end over to make more "leaves"
then put the wire around the bottom of what you just made.Then wrap each "rose" individually with
floral tape just to make it secure.Then start wrapping them together and start including
the leaves and extra flowers...
wrap, wrap and wrap some more.Make sure the end is sorta pretty,
then tie a ribbon around the base of the roses,
figure out how to attach it to the person
and you're all set.This corsage ended up being a little heavy,
pins would have worked but the mom-to-be
had a lightweight shirt on so it wouldn't stay up...
she ended up putting it in her hair...
but it still looked cute!Would love to see your take on the sock corsage!


  1. adorable! I would pin this on and wear it around....and no one would be the wiser!

  2. Such a cute idea! Now you have to give her the other socks, I guess! maybe make more flowers and stick them on top of her present?

  3. oh my gosh that is SUCH a cute idea!!!!!!
