I wanted to share another Fun and Inexpensive holiday crafting idea.
I first learned of this idea about a year or so ago from a forum. But this year I changed it up a bit.
Okay, First off….
The Dollar Tree sells these adorable socks.
I bought about 20 pairs when I first heard of the idea, but don’t worry they still carry them.
In fact, I just saw some there Monday.
*I also saw some at Target, but they were $5.00 a pair there.
**These are long socks, measuring approx. 21” from the top to the toe.
Any way, go to the DT, look in the sock dept., buy you a pair or 2 or 20!
Bring them home, soak them in tea or coffee.
Lay them flat to dry.
When they are dry add a loop to the top of each and poof!
You have primitive pair of Christmas stockings!!
(These measure approx. 23” long counting loop.)
I also added a bell to the top of each one of mine.
They are actually grubbier than they are appearing in the photo. Stupid camera! ;)
This year I decided I wanted some without the fur on top.
So I simply got out my scissors, cut it off at the seam.
Turned them inside out, and sewn a small hem.
They turned out so cute!
(These measure approx. 18. 5” long)
*Same pair, just two different views.
I took another furless pair and added some reproduction homespun patches and used them same fabric for the loops.
(These measure approx. 20.5” long.)
Not bad for a buck each, huh!
Oh, one more quick thing before getting to the giveaway.
Look at this wonderful wrapping paper the DT also has.
It is hard to tell in the photos but the color is barn red and brown.
Now back to the stockings.
I have decided to do a giveaway for the 3 pairs of stockings shown in this post.
I will be choosing 3 winners!!
How this will work is…
I will pick the 1st winner. They will get to chose which of the 3 pairs they want.
Then I will pick a second name and they will chose from the 2 pairs of stocking left.
Then I will pick a 3rd name and they win the remaining pair.
~Make sense?? :)
