Fathers Day Gift – Sock Bouquet

Hello All,

Fathers day is coming up this weekend in England (15th June!) and I wanted to get my dad something nice, useful and a little bit different. So I came up with a sock bouquet! It really really REALLY easy, very quick and it just jazzes up an otherwise boring gift!

So if you want to know how I did it follow these easy steps below:

1. All I used for my sock bouquet was kebab sticks, a vase and socks (durrr). I only used 5 pairs but thinking about it I should have done 6, then I would have had half a dozen roses – oh well. I got mine from Asda, my dad likes just plain black socks, but a little Wifestyle tip: whenever I get my dad/husband/brother/whoever black socks I tend to get them with a little something on, like these ones have the day of the week, but they aren’t outlandishly crazy so if they wear them for work they won’t stand out like a sore thumb, my reason for doing this is it then makes them easier to pair once they’ve been washed! Genius.

2. Take each sock individually lay it out and then starting from the toe just roll it up stopping when you reach the elasticated band at the top.

3. Then roll the elastic band round as if you were folding the socks to hold the flower in place. Pull out the rolls a little if you like also so its a bit looser.

4. Place the kebab stick inside the sock and arrange beautifully in your vase!

And it should look something a little like this…

It really is so easy it literally took me less than 5 minutes and it just jazzes up an otherwise boring gift! Snazzy and practical – love it! You could also if you want to do this with underwear, add chocolates in, just make it your own. I got my dad some KitKat chunky bars, so its as if he is getting man flowers and man chocolates.

If you do decide to whip this little baby up for your dad this fathers day be sure to tweet me a pic of your creations to @GlamLifeOfAWife

XO Emma.
