DIY Missing Sock Station

This is probably the most used craft I will ever make. I lose my socks all the time. Seriously, I am pretty sure that dryer lint is the remains of my missing socks. So, my solution is the Missing Sock Station.

While you wait for the wood to dry, paint your clothes pins.

Step 3:

Your wood should be dry by now. Grab a MASSIVE sharpie and start writing. You can use paint if you prefer but I think the sharpie is a bit more clean.

Step 4:

When both the clothes pins and wood are dry, you can use your wood glue to adhere the pins to the wooden board.

Step 5:

Cut some string a bit longer than the length of the wooden board. Glue each end of the string to the edges of the board ( a bit high than center). Let the dry.

*Surely there is a better way of hanging this, but I am being lazy tonight and I know that this is going to work. So, if you are aware of better ways to hang this thing then go for it!

  1. What a brilliant idea …. wish I had this when I was living with my partner – don’t use sock myself. One of the best I seen so fare, especially if you have kids in the household. I vote for an Oscar for this.
