Craft Directions

1- Pick out your style of sock. We chose a gray one and an argyle one. Now hot glue on the googley eyes, just above the sock’s toe line.

2- Next, you need to decide what kind of features you want it to have. We’ve chosen a foam visor, hair, and mini golf club.

3- For the foam visor, cut out a crescent shape out of your craft foam. This one is about 2×3 inches, but measure yours to your sock size.

4- For the hair, cut out 1-2 inch strips of yarn. Glue a strip of hot glue on the mini foam visor underneath, and place them carefully onto the glue. Now glue your visor onto your sock, just above the eyes.

5- For the mini golf club, cut a piece of chenille pipe wire in half. Curl down one side just a little, giving it the shape of a golf club. Then glue it onto the sock, where it’s arms would be.

6- We also wrote on our foam visors with white puffy paint. This is available at most craft stores. It writes easily and dries pretty fast.
