{christmas joy}

Merry almost Christmas to everyone! Today I thought I would show you how to make a fun and simple little decor project for your home this Holiday season.

I had the idea in my head to do a little framed stocking. For my template, I simply did an online search and got this:

You can get the full size image by clicking here. I printed it out on regular paper, and trimmed around the edge. I used this to cut a stocking out of white cardstock, then covered it with Christmas themed paper from the Rob & Bob Scandia Jul collection.

 I stitched around the edges for some added texture, and to make it look a little like fabric ;)

I added some letter stickers and punched embellishments, as well as some white felt for the top of the stocking.

This project only took me about an hour from start to finish! A quick little craft. You could even do different patterns - a candy cane, gingerbread man, Christmas tree, snowflake....there are lots of possibilities!

Hope you have a blessed Holiday season!
