1) Learn how to fold socks with your arms

If you’re one of those people who are picky about their socks, then you might be considering ways to fold your socks that look great in drawers or even work as gifts. The nice thing about all these methods is that they require no special equipment or training; with just a little bit of practice, you’ll have your sock folding figured out and ready for prime time. You can literally get these steps down in five minutes and start enjoying your finished products right away! Here are our top five creative ways to fold your socks

2) Learn how to fold socks with your feet

You have a drawer full of clean socks and every single one has an identical mate. If you don’t have time to match them all up, or if they aren’t in your favourite pair, try folding your socks with your feet instead. Choose any sock and face it towards you; place your feet together on top. Use your big toe (the right foot if you are right-handed) as a guide, tucking it under until it touches where there should be a crease in the sock. Next, bend down and scoop up some material from both ends of your sock with each toe that is adjacent to that end. One by one, fold that piece over each toe until it sits neatly next to its mate on top of your foot.

3) Create an Origami sock crease

Store your socks in their own drawer by creating a simple sock crease. Cut a 10-inch square from cardboard, place it on top of your dresser or nightstand, and open one sock fully. Place it, inside-up, on top of your card stock square. Repeat with all socks and put them away in a sock drawer or other organized space.

4) Create a sock wreath for your door

If you're crafty and have plenty of odd socks on hand, a great way to reuse them is by creating a sock wreath. Start with a circle made out of cardboard and cut your sock into strips (we suggest using even numbers). Tie one end of each strip around an old hanger that you might have in your closet. With any remaining strips, tie them into bows. Place these strategically between each circle until you've used up all your socks!

5) Add some fun by using chopsticks!

With these colorful socks, you don’t even need a sock puppet. Using chopsticks to hold your socks together makes them easy to store and fun to use. No matter what color or pattern your socks are, using chopsticks will always make them feel like part of a fun little scene. Whether you pair them with your favorite tea for sipping or have some afternoon tea with friends, it’s a great way for kids (and adults) alike to add some fun in their sock drawers. With that being said, let’s go over how you can get started on building up your own!
