I am so thankful and lucky to have been gifted beautiful handmade stockings by the hubs' grandmother. She even incorporated parts of my wedding dress into the top of my stocking...how cool is that?!? I felt the need to somehow "label" the stockings to show which stocking belonged to who. Another trip to Hobby Lobby......
It's simple. Here is how it goes:
Step One: Prance into Hobby Lobby, or your local arts and craft store, and purchase an appropriate sized wooden letter for each stocking.
Step Two: Spray paint wooden letters the color of your choice. Choose a color that will complement the stocking but not over power it.
Step Three: Write a name on the bottom right hand corner of each letter with a sharpie.
Step Four: Hot glue ribbon to the back of the letter, making a loop. Be sure to make all loops the same size so letters will hang evenly.
Step Five: Hang letter with appropriate stocking, step back, and admire your handy work!
This project cost me about $4 total. I always have spray paint and spare ribbon on hand so I simply purchased the wooden letters.
And yes, I have my stockings hung with two stocking holders and a curtain rod. Love it!
I hope you enjoy decorating and celebrating Christmas this year.
Peace out for now!
