Every year, my mom hangs stockings at her house for everybody in the family. This year she decided to get all new stockings. She had me pick out mine. I decided on one made from a burlap potato sack. I found it on Ebay.
This is what it looked like when we got it in the mail.
It's cute, but I thought it could be cuter.
So I started by cutting off the large button and jingle bell.
Then I hot glued some 1" beige lace along the top.
I added a second trim- a burlap band that has pearl loops (which are hard to see in this photo).
Then I made a rosette out of dark blue fabric.
Unfortunately, it was not quite the same shade of blue as the printing on the burlap.
I thought about tea staining it, but I didn't want to allow for the extra drying time.
Instead I sprayed it with some walnut ink spray.
It only took a few moments to dry.
Then I attached it to the stocking.
My final touch was a tan button that I glued to the center of the rosette.
Ta-da! What do you think?
Don't you just love printed burlap?!?
If you see a stocking, but it isn't quite what you want, make your own adjustments. If you use a glue gun, it's easy! No sewing machine needed:)
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
Let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
