When you're invited to a baby shower, you'll need to bring a baby shower gift that the new parents can use to care for their new baby. Instead of buying generic baby gifts from a department store, make your baby shower gift more interesting by transforming it into a whimsical display. For example, you can transform a standard pair of newborn baby socks into a whimsical display that looks like colourful wrapped lollipops.
Place two baby socks horizontally onto a tabletop facing the same direction and insert the end of one sock into the ankle of the other sock by 1 inch.
Place the bowl of a plastic baby spoon onto the left end of the connected socks. Roll the socks into a spiral around the spoon. Set the prepared sock lollipop to the side.
Cut a piece of coloured tulle to measure 6 inches on all sides.
Place the sock lollipop in the middle of the tulle fabric and wrap the tulle around the socks.
Cut a 6-inch piece of ribbon and tie it in a bow at the base of the sock lollipop. This will secure the tulle fabric around the sock lollipop and will hold the lollipop in place.
Repeat to make as many baby sock lollipops as you need for your baby shower gift.
Use pink tulle fabric for a baby girl and blue tulle fabric for a baby boy.
