Well, it took me all day yesterday, but I sewed 25 stockings for our felt board nativity scene advent calendar. I was having a hard time thinking of a way to wrap each piece as they were all different sizes and couldn't be folded. Then I came across this stocking idea using socks and I thought it was great but I didn't want to buy socks so I made stockings out of felt I already had. I like this idea because now I can reuse it every year (unlike wrapping paper etc.). It's also a great way for Aubrey to learn her numbers.
Which one looks better? (Above) minimal or (Below) with snowflake wreath?
I went to the dollar store today and picked up two different size snowflakes and glued them on to wreath frame I made from shaping a wire coat hanger into a circle. I also picked up the the little white birds. I still want to make a wreath out of clothe pins to clip Christmas cards onto, but that's still in the works.
