Raid the Recycling Bin: 10 Recycled Crafts

Baby Sock Mobile

Babies seem to outgrow their clothing every few months, which means that those darling, teensy little baby socks won't be put to good use for very long. So here's a crafty project that gives them a second life. Gather up some ribbon, an embroidery hoop, some colored felt and something to stuff the socks with -- beads, beans or fiberfill stuffing all work well. Decorate each sock with different colors and shapes of felt, googly eyes, and whatever else suits your fancy. Once the sock is adorned, fill it with your stuffing of choice and tie it off tightly with thread and then ribbon. Hang the socks at varying lengths from your embroidery hoop and you have yourself a baby sock mobile.
