Make No-Slip Socks

I'd been wanting to do this project for a while now, so here goes...

your plainy-Janey socks...


one-of-a-kind no-slip soles.


1. Place cardboard strips in your socks and paint designs on the bottom using Puffy Paint.

2. Let them dry according to package instructions (I left mine overnight).


How cute are these all rolled up like rosettes for a gift?

Ooh-- throw in a great foot scrub (I have a great eBook full of sugar scrub recipes) and your Valentine will kiss your feet! Truth.

Some other ideas I came up with (but haven't yet tried) are:

stenciling the recipient's name,
writing the alphabet and
drawing butterflies or animal paw-prints.

(love these).



  1. Hey Erin! I just saw this awesome tutorial over at She Wears Flowers! You can make some unique personalized gifts and I am so glad that you shared it!! Thanks so much! I am your newest follower now!! Can't wait to read through some of your archives!

  2. This is easy enough to do! I like it!

  3. I just checked out this darling project, Erin! You are so clever! My oldest son is always doing the Tom Cruise slide across our floors in his socks (on purpose, of course). I just might go buy some puffy paints to keep him from slip sliding away! : ) Thank you!

  4. I'd love for you to come link up at Inspire Me Mondays

  5. I loved so much I am putting a link up on my blog tomorrow... stop by if you can.
