Homemade Gripper Socks

Hi everyone!  This is Cheri from I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar.  Today I'm going to show you a unique use for the 3-D Tulip Paints.

We been living in our current home for almost two years.  One thing I loved about this home when we looked through it was the hardwood flooring.  Once we moved in we quickly realized just how slippery it was.  I made sure to buy socks that had some sort of gripper on the bottom for my son.  However, he recently arrived at the shoe size where they don't sell gripper socks in his size anymore.  He's had a lot of wipeouts.  While I could say, "He'll learn," I thought of a better solution so he'd be able to run like the wind.

Homemade Gripper Socks!

This project was fast, easy, and fun.  I got out my Tulip Slick Paints and started drawing all over the back of Rex's socks. 

I applied the paint fairly thick to make the gripping action strong.

I let him pick what designs he wanted so that he would be excited to wear them.

This pair is my favorite.

He likes them, too.

No more wipeouts for us.
