Craft Project: Baby Sock Puppets

Turn mismatched baby socks into cute little friends for your kids. They are the perfect size for little hands.

Approximate Time: 5 minutes



  • Baby Socks
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Beads
  • Yarn
  • Other


Select baby sock and accessories. Hot glue beads to make face. Hot glue yarn to make hair. Hot glue other accessories such as ribbon, etc. Voila!

If you wish, you can use a needle and thread to attach accessories.

These would make great gifts.

I would not use a hot glue gun to secure beads, yarn, etc. to the sock if this is for little ones. They can easily be pulled off and swallowed. This is a cute idea for older kids or if the items are really, really securely sewn on (though I wouldn't do it that way).

Of course, you wouldn't let anyone under the age of 3 use them, for fear of choking, right?

cute idea, for kids who are younger than three you could use non-toxic paint markers for hair and features or embroider them on.
