How to make your own odd socks board

Create with paint! Projects from habitat by Resene

If mismatched socks seem to be a reoccurrence in your household, here’s a clever system – an odd socks board to keep aside any socks missing their other half.

How to make an odd socks board
An odd socks organiser

We created our odd socks board using an old picture frame, brightened up with Resene colours from the latest fashion range.

You will need

Wall painted in Resene Rice Cake, frame in Resene Mystery, mat board in Resene Meditation, backing board in Resene Raindance, string in Resene Mystery and pegs in Resene Meditation and Resene Mystery.

Step three
Put the screws into the left and right side of the inner part of the frame, so that the string will sit halfway across the frame.

Step four
Paint three of the pegs in Resene Meditation and the other three in Resene Mystery. Leave to dry.

Step five
Paint the string in Resene Mystery. Leave to dry.

Step six
Place the frame back together.

Step seven
Tie the string.

Step eight
Taking the three pegs painted in Resene Mystery, glue them onto the bottom of the frame, evenly spaced apart.

Step nine
Use the chalkboard pen to write a fun reminder for the family to keep a look out for their missing socks. You’re on your way to having an organised sock draw!

Top tip: Paint the pegs in each of your children’s favourite Resene colours so that you can peg the socks on their own coloured pegs until they find their missing sock partner.
