Craft: Cute, Cheap Christmas Stockings

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
You know how the stores have all those cute Christmas stocking but who actually wants to pay the price that they are asking and of course by the time you get to the store for the day after Christmas everything that is cute is gone already.

Here is an idea:

Buy those cheap plain colored felt Christmas stockings and some sheets of different colored felt and some craft glue.
Take the sheets of felt and cut out different shapes, sizes, you could do stripes, polka dots, let your imagination go and then just glue them on the stocking.
This craft is so easy that the kids will love it! You could even do one every year with them just to see how they have changed with their ideas or how about putting their hand on it.

You can even add some cheap ribbon, bows, jingle bells, use glitter glue, the possibilities are endless.

I love that idea.
I sew a lot and last year I made stockings for each of us and wrote our names in glitter glue at the top. It is an odd looking assortment...
Sponge Bob for my 3 year old
John Deere for hubby
Butterflies for me
dinosaurs for my 6 year old.

Odd combination, but we got a lot of compliments.
I might have the boys do little bitty felt stockings for the tree, they dont have the attention span to do a big one, always on the go. I see the small ones 2/$1 sometimes, just never thought of what to do with them. Great idea on any scale.
