How to make a bouquet of socks with your own hands. A practical gift for kids
First we will prepare the socks. We will cut off the labels and start rolling them off in rolls spiraling, trying to turn the coils a little down. In this case, you should adjust the degree of tension of the fabric: do not twist the workpiece too lightly or, conversely, too tight. Remember: when folding the toe, his heel should "look" to the side. As a result, after twisting one pair of socks, you will have a flower resembling a rose. Now slightly stretch the top edge of the product, giving the "petals" a more realistic shape. Finally take the pin and fix it with a bud. So, the first flower is ready. By analogy, we perform several more buds from the remaining pairs of socks. After we move on to work with the clothing of crumbs.

Step-by-step instruction for doing crafts
We take wooden skewers and fix the candy on them with scotch tape. We get the core of flowers in this way. We prepare skewers with green corrugated paper. Now we prepare socks - we remove tags and separate them individually. One sock is folded in half and gently, evenly and fairly tightly wound on a candy, attached to a skewer. We take the second sock and wind it on top of the first, only a little freer. The upper edge slightly bend outward, forming the petals of the flower. We fasten the bud with a rubber band for money.

Add to the composition of tape, artificial greens and any other decorative elements. That's it, the original gift is ready! It remains only to solemnly present it to the man.
