Santa’s Smelly Socks

This is a quick and fun craft to make with many uses. You can place these smelly socks into shoes or just hanging up in a room.

Santa’s Smelly Socks

What you need

Pair of decorative Christmas Socks
Elastic bands


Start by filling your socks with potpourri. If your socks are new you can stretch them out a little by placing them onto your foot.

Stuff the potpourri into the sock nice and firm. Use elastic bands to close off the top of the sock and attach some ribbon.

You can hang these in pairs or just have one smelly sock hanging up.

These make lovely gifts and fundraiser items.
