Directions:

  1. Use the scissors to cut a slit in the wreath form to make a small opening.
  2. Cut the toes off of each of the socks so that they are open at both ends.
  3. Carefully slide the socks onto the wreath form. Layer the socks so that the cut end of each sock is covered by the finished end of the next sock. Completely cover the wreath form with socks.
  4. Cut a piece of ribbon and tie it around the top of the wreath. You can tie the ribbon to use to hang the wreath, or simply make a decorative bow.
