Dollar Tree Stocking Ornaments
We are now moving into all things Christmas here at BurlapKitchen.com. As I said before, I like to get Christmas DIY’s out early so you have plenty of time to make them all!
I found these felt stockings at the Dollar Tree and I knew I wanted to do something with them. They make the perfect stencil! The felt was a little too flimsy for what I wanted to do so I decided just to trace them. I used some cardboard from my last Sams Club trip. You all have me hooked on that store now!
A few ides for these stockings would be to use them as Christmas tree ornaments (this is what I plan to do!), stuff them in garlands, and/or use them in a wreath. Let me show you all how I made them!
- Stockings from the Dollar Tree (This is just to trace.)
- Material of your choice. I chose black and white buffalo check
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Microfiber Car cloth ( this is found in the automotive department at the Dollar Tree)
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Embellishments of your choice ( I chose pine, candy cane and twine)
Step 1: The first step is to lay the felt stocking on a piece of cardboard, trace it, and cut it out. Once you cut the first stocking out it is much easier to use the cardboard stocking to trace the rest of them.
Step 2: Once all the stockings are cut out you can then start adding the material. I cut the material slightly bigger than the stocking. Paint the entire stocking with Mod Podge and then lay the material over it and fold the excess to the back. I then cut a little strip of the microfiber to go along the top of the stocking. I just hot glued this part down.
Step 3: Once you have both the material and the microfiber top on you can now embellish your stalking anyway you wish! If you have a Circuit machine you could print a name across the top of the stocking. I have one, but didn’t have the time or the space to get it out for this project. Because of this I decided to embellish with pine, tags, & a candy cane. I hot glued the pine and candy cane down and then tied the tag on with some twine. I think these turned out super cute!
