How to Make Your Own Felt Christmas Stockings

Hi Everyone!

It is Christmas in July, right? I wanted to share these stockings I made a couple of years ago for my hubby, myself and our cats – and now that we have two new Scottie puppies I want them to have stockings as well! I went ahead and took step by step photos this time so that anyone else can make their own stockings too. I loved the elf stocking shape and could not find stockings in the store that I liked or where reasonably priced so I decided ‘Why not try to make my own?’

DIY Metal Orb

This weekend I was walking around the ribbon section at Hobby Lobby and found METAL RIBBON. That’s right, you heard me right. METAL RIBBON. This stuff is beautiful! My mouth fell open and I think I even gasped when I realized what it was. They had several varieties (designs and widths) to choose from and the ones I picked up were $4.99 and 50% off. I knew right away that I wanted to turn the ribbon into metal orbs.

Flower Rosette Tutorial for Tulle, Fabric, Burlap and Ribbon

Last week I showed you a “How to Make the Perfect Bow.” I figured out the secret trick by going to my local craft store, finding a pre-made bow and inspecting the craftsmanship. That same day I found some flower rosettes for sale… 3/$8.99. The lady shopping next to me looked at me funny when I started to gasp, take a picture and frantically text Elisabeth. $9 for a rosette was CRAZY! They are so easy and cost virtually nothing.

Wall Décor Curtain Rod with Hanging Frames

{Texas Craft House} Wall Decor Curtain Rods with Hanging FramesI have to admit that I am the most proud of this refresh that I’ve done to my living room wall! I used to have floating shelves with my knick knacks on them and wasn’t in love with that look anymore. I had a curtain rod left over from our move a few years ago and I didn’t toss it thinking I could do something with it. I’d seen an idea of several frames hanging from a rod and wanted to figure out how to do this. I went back and forth considering ideas and shooting them down because of the sheer weight frames would have on the rod. Like I said years passed and this idea had been gnawing at me, so I started googling different strings of words to try to get more inspiration on how to accomplish my idea. I came across and they literally have step-by-step directions for “fake hanging,” check out the link to see! What is this you ask? Let me show you!!
