Have you ever found that perfect pair of shoes, but they’re totally flat and have absolutely zero fraction?
Believe it or not, that can get dangerous! Try running a hot glue gun across the bottom to create your own grips.

I hate slippery socks! I normally wouldn’t care so much, but now that it is getting colder I wish I would wear something on my feet.

I found slip resistant socks online, but they are a little pricey, and besides you know me, I love making things on my own!

So, I had an idea. I just used a little glue from my hot glue gun on the bottom of my socks to make them slip resistant. It was sooo easy, it took me less than 10 minutes!

First, plug in your glue gun and get the socks you are going to use.

Make sure the socks are lined up so you are putting glue on the bottom. You could trace your foot on cardboard and then slip it in the bottom of the socks so you have a hard, flat surface to work on that is the exact shape of your foot. That is optional, I just flipped it over and flattened it out.

Then start adding dots of glue all over.

Let it dry for 15-20 seconds, so the glue cools down a bit and then make sure your glue dots are flat, just to make them more comfortable to walk on.

That’s it! You can do this on any cotton socks or tights, but I don’t suggest the opaque tights, I haven’t tried it, but I imagine they would melt.

To wash skid resistant tights or socks, turn inside out and hang to dry. Or hand wash. If you dry them in the dryer the glue will melt off. I know from experience!
