Don’t get pinched this St. Patrick’s Day. Make yourself a pair of festive shamrock socks!
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a lot of green in my wardrobe. So, when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around, I am struggling to find something to wear. I know my kids will give me a pinch if I don’t have my green on! I am super excited about my new shamrock socks! And they could not be cuter. I’ll be making a pair for everyone in my family!
White, unribbed socks
Pencil with new eraser
Green fabric paint
OL199 Clover Labels from Online Labels
Not shown: cardboard and wax paper
Center a clover label on the leg of the sock over the cardboard. Press firmly around the edges.
Pour out a nickel’s worth the fabric paint. Dip pencil eraser in the paint then apply to sock along the edge of the clover, overlapping over the label. Be sure to use a pounce technique and do not “brush” the eraser in order to create clean round circles of paint.
I pounced twice before applying more paint to the eraser. This gave one dark circle and one lighter circle, creating a contrast in the paint color.
Continue to pounce all the way around the label then work your way out.
Once satisfied with the paint, carefully peel away the label.
You can easily whip these socks up for the whole family in no-time flat! And if anyone accuses you of not wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day, just point them towards your shamrock socks.
