diy shark socks

crafty shark week

Hooray, it’s shark week at DSC!  I love to see what fun ideas and projects the team comes up with.  Shark projects can run the spectrum from scary to silly to chic, and the idea I have for you today definitely falls in the “silly” category, with a nod to how scary sharks are.

shark socks DIY

Admit it, haven’t we all worried about critters nibbling on our toes when we wade into the ocean?  These fun DIY socks illustrate what might happen if a shark decided to munch on your foot.  I used super soft fabric paint to keep the socks soft and comfortable.

Project Estimate:

  • Socks – $1
  • So Soft Fabric Paint – $1.50 each
  • Puffy Paint – $1

Total:  $5

step 1

Step one:  Cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside the sock.

step 2

Step two:  Use the silver paint to make the “body” of the shark.  Paint a “v” shape near the top and fill in the rest of the sock with silver paint.  Repeat on the other side.

Step three:  Use the red paint to outline the teeth.  Make small “v” shapes for the teeth.  Fill the top of the sock with the red paint.

Step four:  Use black puffy paint to draw the eyes and other details on the shark.

Confession:  I totally want to make a pair for myself.  Everyone who sees these can’t help but giggle.  All my kids want a pair, and luckily these are super easy to make so I’ll have them all done in no time.  Grab your socks and fabric paint, and get your shark on!
