Decking Out Your 50’s Sock Hop with Themed Crafts


When it comes to popular party crafts, nothing is more popular than the 50s sock hop. Although the time period from the 1950s to the present gets larger and larger, the interest in that era doesn’t seem to waver in the slightest. People not only love the music from that time, but they also love the fashion. This is one of the main reasons why the 50s sock hop is such a popular party idea. If you are planning on having a party like this, there are some crafts that you can do to make it even more fun than you already anticipated.

Most 50s sock hops will be costume parties, so you can craft your own costume fairly easily. If you’re a girl, the main wardrobe for this era was the poodle skirt. Although they look complicated, these garments are actually easy to make. If you already have a long circle skirt, then your job is already half done. The most important aspect of a poodle skirt is the poodle. You can make this out of felt. Most are made of black, white, or pink depending on the color of the skirt.

Another cool craft you can do for your 50s sock hop is make a faux jukebox. This can be made to fit right over your current stereo. If you are pressed for time, you can easily make this with a large piece of cardboard and several colors of paint. Find a picture of a jukebox for inspiration. When you’re done, prop it against your stereo with a hole cut out where you access the stereo’s function. Then you’ll instantly have a rockin’ 50s sock hop.
