DIY Christmas Stocking

Happy Day After Christmas!

Okay, so I'm always a bit late on...well everything...so here's a late Christmas project. I would like to point out that I don't think it's completely crazy to do a Christmas project after Christmas. I might do some to get them done before I put all the Christmas stuff away for the year. Or maybe you got a sewing machine for Christmas finally and you can do some projects.

Any who, I did do this project before Christmas and Lila did use it on Christmas morning. So I'm not completely behind. :)

My new dear daughter needed a stocking. I didn't want to buy one. I wanted her to have unique one made from the heart. I saw this fabric, and I knew I wanted to use it for something. I did a simple outline of an existing stocking I had, then I cut her name out of felt and put that on the top cuff of the stocking. Pretty easy project but it was fun.

Idea Thief: Easy Christmas Trees

Hi There!

I had to share this tutorial for some Christmas tree decorations. I have a larger house this holiday than I have in previous years, which means my decorations don't stretch as far. This is a great cheap project. Grab some streamers and your hot glue gun...and of course glitter!

Check out Creative Chaos for the tutorial!
