For the past two days I have been busy ‘trying’ to decorate our house for Christmas! You see, I decided it would be fun to just ‘add some red’ to our holiday decor. I thought it would be easy enough to just throw a few red ornaments on the tree and call it good, but those extra ornaments changed the entire look of the tree and now the entire look of the room. Needless to say, I am now I’m on my THIRD attempt at decorating our tree this year. All I have to say is thank goodness for the Dollar Tree that is 10 minutes from my house!
So in the midst of rummaging through ornament boxes, taking multiple trips to the dollar store and heading back into the woods to pick up more branches, I thought I’d pop in and share the Burlap Christmas Stockings I made last year for Christmas.
Last year, I went with more rustic Christmas decor, filled with burlap, golds and silvers. It was also Miss E’s first Christmas so I HAD to make a new set of stockings anyway :)
I made the stockings with basic burlap and lined them with a cream satin to add a little elegance. I also added a little pine cone and foliage for some bling. And like most of my holiday decor, all of my bling comes from The Dollar Tree :)
THIS year, like I mentioned, I’ve been changing things up and adding some red into the mix. Because I made very basic stockings, it was easy to switch out the berries and now they have a whole new look!
Do you have a staple set of stockings you put up each year or do you change your stockings with your decor? I’m still trying to figure this one out!
