Last year I kept meaning to make or buy some Christmas Stockings, but it was one of those things that I just didn’t get to. So I decided to fix that this year.
This is a great quick easy project that you can do this week. Buy your items and do it!
I really wanted something that was easy to make but very pretty at the same time.
It all came together when Pearl from Burlap Fabric suggested that we partner up on a project. She let me decide on the items from her store and I immediately thought of creating Christmas stockings.
While browsing her site I found some lovely linen Christmas Stockings that are perfect for my project.

START WITH A SIMPLE STOCKING
I selected the linen stocking. They are simple and pretty on their own but work perfectly if you want to fancy them up a bit.
GLAMMING THEM UP
There are so many possibilities for embellishing these stockings.
I decided to add some cozy faux fur to my Christmas stockings for a wintery but warm look.
Here is the supply list
Measuring & Cutting
I used the stocking as my pattern which makes it super easy. Place the stocking on the material and cut width and length to fit the stocking top.
It basically amounts to cutting your faux fur material twice the width of the stocking.
Once your material is cut grab your hot glue and apply glue to one side of the stocking. Be careful it is easy to burn your fingers. Then press one side of the stocking to the glue.
Now your stocking is ready to hang. These are so easy and so pretty you can make one for each one in your family.
Coming up this week I will show you my decorated mantel and how it looks with the Fur Trimmed Christmas Stockings.
