DIY Sock Bun
I recently re-organised my clothes cupboard and was un-surprised at my collection of lonely socks. Ah-ha! The sock monster strikes again!
What to do with my all my one-some socks? The 35C+ weather and my un-tamable long hair (I'm growing it for the formal) made the decision for me; Sock buns. Easy, suitable and a non-time consuming project.
For this project I used:
A thick, knee-high sock
A hot Glue-gun
A pen and ruler
Rule a straight line across the sock, just under the heel. Cut across the line and discard the foot.
Step No. 2
Start rolling your sock up, beginning at the elastic end. The longer your hair the bigger your rolls should be.
Step No. 3
Fold the leftover edge down, and glue with your hot glue gun (Alternatively you can hand sew it down)
Turn the roll so that the ragged edge is on the inside.
Then use it to make a super cute bun!
