Re-using Socks

This is such a simple use of old socks you don't need to be able to sew or anything.  You will need some old socks, a jar or tin, and some scissors.

So first, you need to cut the 'foot' off the sock, then put the sock on your choosen recepticle.  I tried it upto the rim first, then I pulled it all the way up to cover the screw top lines.

Voila!!  How easy was that.  It didn't even take 2 minutes and I've re-used an old sock.  You can add any embellishments you like (there is actually some ribbon tied round this now but I've forgotton to photograph it!).
