Good morning !
Let be just begin this post by saying two things:
1. This project is easy.
Even kids can do this.
2. I had soooo much fun doing this!!!!
I bought these stockings at least two years ago at Hobby Lobby in Myrtle Beach. My intention was to monogram them and I just never got around to it. So this week as we were digging through all of our Christmas decorations I came across them and decided to doll them up a bit to coordinate with the new colors we are currently using in our living room. I got a roll of gray and white checked ribbon at Walmart for less than $3 and and a single square of gray felt at Michaels $.39 and off I went!
Next, I went to the computer and printed out our initials on to a piece of heavy card stock. This would become my pattern for my felt initials.
I used Georgia for my font and 350 point for the size. I wanted my initials pretty chunky.
I fooled around with their placement until I was happy and then tacked them down in a few placed to make sure the looked good when they were hung. Once I was happy then I hot glued the entire letter to each stocking.
I did the same thing for my plaid ribbon. I tacked the ribbon on in just a few places making sure that the overlap of each end of that ribbon was on the back of the stocking. When I was pretty sure I had the ribbon straight I glued the entire ribbon down.
Then I could not leave well enough alone.
Big shock there.
Y'all can now add 'button' to my list of hoards. I love how these tortoise shell buttons look on Big Daddy's stocking!
And abalone for me.
So less than $4 to doll up these babies and in a few years when I want to change them yet again ......
It peels right off :)
Blogs I love!
