Burlap Christmas Stocking Crafts

 

IMG_0264-4I’ve been looking at these Simple Burlap Stockings in the studio for quite some time now thinking what a great canvas they would be for Christmas colors.  Last weekend I finally found some time to “play” with the stockings.  When you start with a basic element like the Simple Stocking, the majority of the work has already been done for you.  You can just jump right into the fun part of embellishing!  This is especially good if you want to make a variety of similar but different products to sell as a craft.  The stockings I made will be placed in a local craft store and hopefully finding new homes before Christmas but I wanted to show them to you here and maybe inspire you to get your Christmas craft on!

I’ve in love with this tea dyed vintage style Venetian lace that we have now so I used it on most of my stockings.  I think the soft, elegant but shabby style of the lace is a great combo with the rougher, rustic burlap.  I also used homespun yoyos, ribbon, and fabric to create a variety of different styled designs.

Today I took a good look at our Ruffled Burlap Stocking and decided maybe it could be a good canvas also.  The oh-so-cute ruffle at the top of the stocking seemed to give it a more playful attitude so for this stocking, I embellished with our new Christmas color wood buttons, brightly colored rick rack, fabric, burlap flowers and jute string.

No two are the same which is what made this project so fun.  Using the pre-made burlap stockings as a canvas for embellishing is what made these crafts super quick and easy.  These stockings are great for family craft night yet they are economical enough to sell them at a craft show for a little Christmas cash.

If the Christmas craft bug has you now, make sure that you are on our mailing list.  Stefanie is planning some Cyber Monday specials in the Homespun & Burlap Christmas category this year.

So plug in a little Christmas music, grab some hot cider and tour my embellished Christmas stockings.  Enjoy!
