Just uploaded a DIY video on how you can make you own cutie Socktopus! Meet Sally the Socktopus =) Super easy to make, and she is a huge hit with the kids! I have a feeling I will be making many, many more of these. They've already been requested by all my daughters friends....not to mention a few adults, lol. I personally would like to adorn my craft room with a whole family of these cuties. I plan to use child sized socks to make mini socktopuses, etc, etc. I can't wait to go sock shopping, lol

NOTE: If you are going to do something like this for a very young child or baby, I suggest sewing the pieces on VERY well so they can't be pulled off by tiny hands. Also cut the tentacles (legs) shorter so that they can't wrap them around their necks or anything! ♥

Here is a DIY gumball machine I made using a terracotta flower pot and a glass vase found at the dollar store. I just love how it looks filled with embellishments and flowers. I plan to make tons of these over the summer =) You can get a better look at it and find out the details by checking out my YouTube video (see side bar on the right)
