Sock Puppet from a Lost Sock

Okay, the title was a little misleading. You don’t make a sock puppet from a lost sock. You make a sock puppet from the sock that is left after you have lost its mate. Because the lost sock is gone forever, you might as well enjoy the remaining sock by turning it into a no-sew sock puppet!

This project is part of Craft Lightning Week. All week long we are celebrating Obscure Holidays. And today I’ve made a craft to celebrate Lost Sock day (which is May 9th, in case you are wondering). My friends Angie from the Country Chic Cottage and Lindsay from See Lindsay are joining me, along with some of our crafty friends. See the obscure holidays they picked, and the fun crafts they have come up with when you scroll all the way down.

Simple Sock Puppet - No Sew and easy to make

To make your sock puppet, you’ll need:

Hot Glue
