Stocking: From Sale Aisle to Glamorous Display

Hi everybody! 

I hope you are having a great time with all the holiday inspiration!  I know we’ve had a lot of fun creating with the Passionately Artistic Design Team.  It’s really putting me in the mood for the holidays. 

I just have a few finishing touches yet for around the house and one of them is our stockings so I came up with an easy tutorial on how to take a clearance find and turn it up a notch!  Please visit me over at the Passionately Artistic blog as I was asked to guest design today.  I thought this stocking tutorial would fit right in with the 12 days of Christmas celebration on!
So let’s get started:  
We are going to take a store bought stocking that has great potential and tailor it to fit your color scheme this year. So let's get started!
  • Stocking (can find in sale aisle of home goods store)
  • Poinsettias, glitter and velvet in various colors (Dollar store find)
  • Rhinestones, Wan2Scrap.com
  • Poinsettia ornament (Dollar store find)
  • Sprays, clear plastic (Dollar store find)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Dots
How to:
  1. Using scissors, cut apart the stems of the poinsettias flower/leaves and layer each until you like the look of your flower.
  2. Adhere Want2Scrap rhinestones in various colors to center and secure with glue dots. Add various sprays/leaves to each corner as filler. Position with glue dots as well.
  3. Adhere coordinating red Want2Scrap rhinestones to the design of the stocking.  
With these stockings, you can easily update them for the following year if you want a different look.  You can either change the stocking by adding a contrasting poinsettia or even by updating the look all together.  Since you're using glue dots and adhesive rhinestones from Want2Scrap, you can even change the colors of those to fit.  
I do hope you've enjoyed the stockings and are inspired to personalize your own. 
Don’t forget there is still time to win one of the two $25.00 gift certificates to the Want2Scrap store. Remember to leave as many comments as you wish and tell your friends about the blog hop.  There is still time to participate!
