Sock Octopus

sockoctopus

I saw these cute little guys in a magazine and they looked so easy to make.  I figured the kids would enjoy them, or they would make a cute gift for a small child.  I never did see exactly what they wanted you to use to make it, but this is what I did.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

Socks (I got  2 pair at the Dollar Store)

Hot Glue Gun

Scissors

Googly eyes

Ribbon or rubber band

DIRECTIONS:

Stuff the sock with a good sized amount of batting.

Tie off with some ribbon or maybe even use a rubber band.

Then clip the bottom of the sock into 8 strips, for the tentacles.  Glue on some googly eyes, and any other embellishments you would like to add.
