On the weekend we had a bonfire with a few friends celebrating Guy Fawkes night- a British tradition I grew up with. Back in the day a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament was foiled and Guy Fawkes was punished. Each year on the 5th of November we have bonfires, fireworks and great food. I try to continue my childhood memories and find any excuse to have a get together. So as well as making a few treats I did a quick little craft. Cute cup cozy's for my mason jar glasses. I could take credit for it but I actually saw it in the latest issue of Style at Home.
You start by finding some warm woolen socks. I picked up two packs of two socks for $3 each at Dollarama. I was looking for grey like the Sock Monkey's we all know and love but in the end only found black. You could use any colour though.. Then you cut off the first 4 1/2 inches.
Finally hem the bottom (about 1/4 inch) and put over your glasses or mugs. You could also use them on travel mugs. Check out mine below!
Great Christmas gift idea! I love them! Clean socks always work best!!
