I've been wanting a long stocking for my door in place of a wreath. THIS Etsy listing is gorgeous, but I didn't have the extra money to spend right now on pretties. So I made my own.
I won't be winning any awards with this one, but I'm still loving it's rustic and primitive feel.
To make it, I just did a rough drawing with a pencil on top of the back liner I used. I cut the liner and the burlap out together and then just pinned it with safety pins along the sides and bottom. (it only took about 10 minutes, just in case you can't tell, haha)
I used a stencil and black permanent marker to do the lettering. It's not as pretty as paint would have been, but it was a lot faster.
Then I added a little padding to the inside and placed some leaves and berries in the top
These pics were taken quick. It was -42 out there this day. You can see how the cold air rushes inside the warm house in a white fog
About 20 minutes after taking these photos, I discovered these guys out in my yard eating leftover garden cabbage....SO much fun!
