Hello lovlies!
For me, Christmas morning would not be the same without a full stocking! I don't know why, but it is so fun to find a million (maybe not that many) little things stuffed to the max in a giant sock. Stockings also really dress up a room for the Holidays. Whether you have two or five stockings, they always look so stinkin' cute! They can be hung from a fireplace, staircase, window ledge, door, or anywhere you can think of!  They also make fantastic gifts. You can really personalize a stocking for someone, and like I said, it's not that hard! You will come to realize that I am a fan of simple, but awesome crafts. So here, if you're boyfriend/husband likes a certain football team, then make him a stocking with his favorite team logo and colors. If you're Mom has a really fancy living room, make her stockings to match! If you have a fun, one-of-a-kind best friend like I do, make her a busy and eccentric one! Be creative! Even add their names on them! (or nicknames). I like to make my stockings extra large so that a lot of stuff can be put in there! But of course I also like to make them cute!  And you don't have to make it shaped like a sock! Think outside of the box! You can be different and do a jester style, a high heel, or a boot if you want. If you sew, it is pretty easy to make a basic stocking. You basically draw out a pattern of your stocking, cut it out, and sew it together. If you don't know how to sew, you could always buy a basic stocking or get an old one, and dress it up using a hot glue gun. I'm not always the best sewer, but I am a master of the hot glue gun! I'm working on one that I will post when it's finished (hopefully soon). Here are some stockings I found to get you inspired. These are sincerely the most fun stockings ever! Some of them you can even buy! Click on the captions for their original site. Don't forget to send me yours so that I can post them! Happy sewing! (Or gluing)
