Lost Socks

I don't know about you but I have a lot of socks missing their match.  I often throw them into a laundry basket and avoid them unless I'm desperate for a pair.  I was inspired by this post to create my own lost sock board.
Here's mine.  Cute Right?!?
Paint your board, add vinyl, and use ink to distress.

Trace your clothes pins on pattern paper and cut out.  Ink edges.
Hot glue your paper to your clothespins and then to your board.
Hang up and add your extra socks.  Or if you are like me pull a few from your basket full of missing socks to display.


  1. Cute!! This was actually my 'wood' project, but I never got around to uploading it & blogging about it. It's still sitting smack in the middle of my craft table... so sad... I like the lettering on yours!

  2. Very cute! But I would need 12 feet of board to hold all of our lost socks LOL!!

  3. This is seriously the best idea ever.. while I think I might need many more clips. I really need to make one of these... there are always so many missing socks.
