Homemade Non-Skid Socks We used diabetic/circulatory socks (perfect for swollen feet). After washing the socks without fabric softener, we decorated the bottoms from heel to toe with fabric puff paint. Lines, dots, squiggles! You just have to make sure to use thick lines when making your designs so that there is plenty of traction on the bottoms. Leave socks flat and let dry for at least 4 hours. These are going to a nursing home, but they are great for anyone!
A piece I made for my Sociology final, where I was given the assignment to "change the world." I volunteered at a nursing home and had some of the residents paint a few craft sticks each. My siblings' school also made some. I then glued the crafts sticks onto a foam core board, framed it, and it will be hung on a wall in the nursing home for the residents that made it to see everyday and hopefully feel proud of what they did.
