DIY Boot Socks- Save Yourself Some Serious Money!! (No Sewing Involved!!!)

Okay so we’ve all seen the insanely cute boot socks everywhere this season, but they a bit pricey for my wallet. What’s a girl to do? Make some! But I’m not crafty, you say? Never fear, if you can use a pair of scissors you got this! (No judgement on my cutting ability!)

So let’s start with an old sweater you never wear (or find one at a yard sale/thrift store/etc). The one I used is one my daughter had in the give away pile- so I used that! It would be great to have a more neutral color, such as brown/gray/tan, but this will add a pop of color to an outfit without much color.

I just chopped off a sleeve, to a length of about 10-12″ (this was for my daughter- I would say get a sweater your size or maybe a size larger, depending upon the thickness of your calves- mine are thick!)

So, you see I literally chopped this sleeve off- I promise my cutting skills are not always this sloppy!

I then laid my first sleeve on top of the other side (the most accurate way to get the same length- right?) I chopped the second one off and viola!

These were then simply slipped over a pair of jeans and smoothed down, boots put on over and there you have it!

I am going to be on the scout for some super cute sweaters for me and Layna!!

Go forth and make the world a better place- one positive thought/smile/compliment/ at a time! God is great! Have a Blessed rest of the week!!
