This sock angel tutorial shows you a fun way to craft decor for yourself or to give as gifts.
The Fairfield World design team is celebrating Christmas in July! With all the craziness that’s happened this year, it’s a fun distraction to look ahead to the holidays. I used Poly-Fil Fiberfill and Poly-Pellets, both made by Fairfield World, to make this sock angel tutorial. The sock and moss came from Dollar Tree, making this a very budget friendly craft. You could make lots of angels to decorate with or to give away this year. Who wouldn’t love a little guardian angel in their home?
