Wanted to share a super quick & easy holiday centerpiece/decor idea with you today… I fell in love with all the cute and wonderfully inexpensive holiday socks at Target this year and decided they’d make great “holiday vase wraps” for all those glass cylinder vases sitting in my garage – especially since most of the socks were around only $2 a pair! All you have to do is trim the toes off of one of the socks, then pull it up over the vase… and done!
This playful striped sock vase is one of my favorites due to the faux fur trim at the top. (You could also add a similar trim yourself to any socks using white marabou boa.) I just added some manzanita branches (which I’d already spray painted red for a previous party) and hung a few ornaments that matched our tree onto the branches.
These “sock vases” also look cute with flowers & other festive holiday fillers like sparkly curly ting ting, etc… or you could also use this idea to help dress up cylinder vases used as DIY pedestal risers for serving dishes on the appetizer & dessert buffets.
As you might be able to tell, I did a “Colorful Christmas” theme in our dining room this year with lots of felt, yarn & (easy) handmade elements… more on that coming in the next post!
