Project Upcycle Day 1 - Baby Sock Wreath

Project Upcycle for Heart and Stroke
Perhaps you remember yesterday when I asked the question: What could I possibly create with all this stuff? A bunch of baby socks, some pacifiers, ribbon, thread, baby bottle tops, Gladware lids?
Well now is the time to find out!

1) Cut out the Gladware containers.

2) Wrap them in ribbon

3) Centre and tie the baby bottle top (minus the nipple)

4) Add some reinforcement. More ribbon on the back and some ribbon for easy hanging. Starting to figure out where I'm going with this?

5) Rearrange and start gluing on the baby socks

6) Pacifier in the middle along with more socks.

7) Add a little bling or whatever you want and you've got the perfect little baby sock wreath. So cute in the nursery!

**** This baby sock wreath will be listed at Tawny Bee today for $24. Half of the proceeds ($12) will be donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation as part of my Upcycle for Heart and Stroke 2010 campaign. *****

Tomorrow I will be making something out of a white (kind of old lady-ish) under blouse and a pink tie-died lace shawl. What could it be? Stay tuned...
