How to make a baby sock corsage

This is the baby sock corsage that you need to make! Choose the basic baby sock corsage pattern for your little newborn bundle of joy.
There always seems to be so many birthdays and new babies born this time of year, which means lots of baby showers! I love seeing all the different themes for showers now, they have gotten so creative. I really enjoy making corsages for new momma being honored. Its just another little token to take away from the special event.
Baby sock corsages are great because they can be easily disassembled and reused if the mom decides. Its definitely one of the prettiest ways to give a gift of socks!
You will need:
Baby Socks (As many or as few as desired, but use an even number for pairs!)
Floral Wire
Floral Tape
Glue Dots
Hot Glue Gun
Silk flower with Anther to add a center to your sock flowers (small pearls can be used as well)
Silk Leaves
Ribbon
Scissors
Floral Cutters
Step by Step Instruction
  • Lift the cuff and flatten the sock
  • Beginning at the toe edge, softly roll to the top of the sock. The roll doesn’t need to be tight.
  • Take the top edge (on the heel side or bottom of the roll as you view the center photo above) and turn it over onto the roll.
  • Fiddle a little until you have your desired flower shape.  You can gently pull the center to form a longer center or smooch it a little for a flatter blossom.
  • Turning the sock rose over, nudge the stick in, being careful not to push upward too far.
  • I found the stemmed sock roses just secure enough to tuck onto the floral foam without tying. The addition of baby’s breath kept everything snug.  If you would like to make the arrangement more secure, it would be best to use a length of yarn tied tightly around the sock and stick.
  • Take a 10-inch piece of yarn and tie a small bow; trim if desired. Your could use thin ribbon in matching or a contrasting color.  I like the yarn because its slight stretchy-ness helps keep the bow tight.
  • Floral tape is another option but I did not want to use it on the socks and I did not want the green showing.
  • Fill your container with floral foam cut to fit.
  • I used a piece of tissue paper to cover the foam but Easter grass would work too. Using a skewer to make a pilot hole in the foam, insert each sock rose. Tuck in silk leaves, flowers or baby’s breath to fill in any gaps
