DIY | groom ‘cold feet’ socks

July 06, 2012

I am positive that your groom will not be getting cold feet… but I think this project is a fun and silly way to make light of that old saying! Cute patterned socks are quite the rage, so why not surprise your fiancé on the morning of your wedding with this adorable and easy DIY gift…

Print the label above {or design your own!} and cut it to about 3.5″ x 8.5″…

Once trimmed, peel the sticker backing, place on the socks and wrap evenly around the back!

If you will be using cardstock, the steps are very similar…

Apply glue dots {or other form of strong adhesive} in a row along the left side of the print, so that when you fold the side that reads ‘Love, Your Bride’ it will stick right on top of the adhesive.

Make sure that your fold is tight enough for the paper to stay on the socks, but not too tight that it is squeezing them. This is such a cute and easy gift for your groom…

Found this on pinterest, and love the idea. I tried to print it though but I'm having trouble getting the pdf to open, says the link can't be found.

    Hi Kim! I checked on the file and it's seems to be in working order - can you try it from a different computer? Sorry you are having trouble!

For some reason each time I print this, the words "groom, cold feet, and love" are all in a black box. Ive done it from multiple computers and it keeps happening. Help!

    Hi Megan! I'm sorry you are having troubles with your project! I just downloaded the file and printed it on my computer and it came out perfect. Maybe try downloading the file again, there might have been a problem with your original download. Also, you can print straight from the download page - maybe try that! Hope this helps!
