Mismatched Sock Party

Celebrate your single socks with a fun mismatched sock party.


May 9 is National Lost Sock Memorial Day. It's a day to mourn the socks we've lost (where do they get to anyway?) And rejoice in those that are still with us today!


But for the single socks, it's time to get a new life. The aim of this event is to repurpose some of the unmatched singles into useful items for the home.


The crafts


To upcycle your socks into new things you can make items like:


Rice filled hot and cool packs

  • Gather up all your old make-missing socks and check for any holes or worn areas.
  • Read over and complete these step-by-step instructions.


Use the uncooked rice-filled socks as warmers or in place of ice-packs to soothe as needed. Rice-filled socks are a fun and colorful way to warm up or cool down as needed (and kids love them!)


Recycled sock coffee cozies

No-sew coffee cozies make a fun upcycled craft. These coffee cozies also make great presents for the eco-conscious coffee drinker in your life! Click here for directions.


Sock doughnuts


These are a super cute and no-sew project way to upcycle socks into something unrecognizable! They can be that is can be used as pin cushions, decorations, or even filled with rice and used as hand warmers.



There are a ton of other sock projects for the craft-inclined like:

  • Sock monkeys, sock snakes, and other animals.
  • Doorstops, draft-protectors, and more.


**TIP** Keep things like felt, colored yarn, large sewing needles, glue guns, pens, and scissors on-hard for residents to make their creations.


Encourage your residents to share pictures of their finished products with you or capture a few clicks of everyone hard at work yourself!


Remember, no matter what sock-crafts you put together, have a sock-tacular day!
