what kind of craft can I make with spare baby socks?

I received a bunch of clothes from a friend and there's quite a few socks that do not have matches. I was wondering what kind of crafts I could make out of them? They are super cute.

  • If you count this as a craft: I bought a shadow box at Michaels and put some VERY random spare baby things in it... mis matched teeny socks, a diaper, a nuk, a bib, and some pieces of fabric of clothes I loved from their baby-hood that weren't in saving condition due to stains

  • You can make a snowman using an empty water bottle, stuff it with cotton balls, use a small styrofoam ball for the head, glue on felt shapes for the eyes, nose, mouth, scarf, use pipe cleaners for the arms, and the baby sock is the winter hat on top of the styrofoam ball :) DS made one in Pre-K :)

  • You can make a corsage out of them... or even just roses for a vase.
