The following was posted on the Creativity for Kids Blog back in December, but I wanted to share it here as well! Make sure to stop by the Creativity for Kids Blog. There are some amazing crafters sharing some really fun product reviews and other tutorials!
I came across some adorable Sock Cupcakes on Etsy and decided they looked pretty easy to create and would be a perfect gift for my daughters teachers for the Holiday – some fuzzy socks, some chocolates and hot cocoa - what more could you want?
So I set to work and this is how I made them:
One pair fuzzy socks – I got mine at JCP for $4 for two pair.
One red pom-pom
Cardstock – to create cupcake liner and tag (I used a piece of 12x12 cardstock scrapbook paper)
Glue or tape
If needed, gently push down the edges of the sock to make it look like it is "puffed" over the wrapper - fluff sock to make it look the way you want.
You are done! If you want to fancy it up a bit, you can wrap it in cellophane (or even some plastic wrap) and tie it off with some cute ribbon.
I came up with this cute little rhyme and put it on a tag:
This cupcake is not to eat,
Cupcakes are also easy to make using this same concept with other mediums – think washclothes, onesies, bibs etc!
