I did this for my daughter one year when I bought her a bunch of different colored and patterned socks. This year I’m doing it for my granddaughter. Take one of the empty cardboard tubes that your wrapping paper was wrapped around, some safety pins and your socks.
Safety pin all the socks together ~ toe to cuff until you have them all pinned together
Stick them in the tube. You may need some help from a dowel, knitting needle or pencil to get it to go all the way through. When you see it at the end, stop.
Wrap it up and stagger the paper if your paper is the same size as the tube, leaving some end paper.
Squeeze that end paper together so that the tube looks like a giant cracker and tie off with ribbon. I didn’t have any curling ribbon so I just used what I already had in the house. You could also use twine or string. The curling ribbon looks really good though.
A gift of socks never looked so good and you’ll get some laughs when it’s opened and the socks are pulled out of the tube. It makes me think of the neverending scarf trick that magicians do.
