...by the window with care...My kids have all had mismatched, various sized stockings since they were born. If your home is anything like mine, when one has something bigger than the other, it makes for a fight. This wasn't the main reason I made new ones, but it will certainly eliminate that problem!!
Twigg Sudios used a canvas tarp (they called it a drop cloth...potayto...potahto) to make new stockings and I loved the idea. What a great, inexpensive way to get new stockings!!
Using a stocking that I had, I traced and cut out 12 stocking pieces.
Then turned them inside out and sewed them together...hemming along the top
They really took no time at all.
I wanted to decorate the boys a little different then mine and my Princesses'. So I used this candy can as inspiration for the boys'.
Using permanent marker, I just drew stripes like those on the candy cane.
For the girls', I took apart a skirt that didn't fit anymore, and made ruffles.
They are hung below the window in our living all ready for Christmas!!
Don't miss out on any of my upcoming posts...Follow along!
