To make your own personalized Christmas stocking, you will need the following supplies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lz4Z2BCXCng 1. A felt stocking 2. Glitter glue Ribbon 4. Felt cut-outs or other holiday decorations 5. A hot glue gun These items can be found at most craft supply stores or department stores. When choosing your stocking, you may find that you have several color options. Whichever you choose, be sure to select the glue, ribbon and decorations in colors that will compliment the stocking once it is completed. Step 2: Add the Decorations --------------------------------------------------------------------- Once you have all your supplies assembled, you can begin adding each of the decorations to the stocking. The first decoration you will want to add is the bow. To make a bow from ribbon, cut approximately 10 inches of ribbon from the spool. Next, tie a simple bow and add it to the stocking using hot glue. Place it on either corner of the stocking cuff. Next add the felt decorations. The best place to add them is the heel of the stocking, however you may place them wherever you like.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lz4Z2BCXCng Step 3: Add a Name --------------------------------------------------------------------- After you have decorated the stocking, the last step will be adding a name. On the cuff of the stocking, use the glitter glue to write the recipients name. You may want to practice this on a separate piece of paper first. Use block letters that are simple and easy to write. After you add the name, you can use the glitter glue to accent the felt decorations or add color to a solid colored stocking.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lz4Z2BCXCng Read more by visiting our page at: http://www.mahalo.com/how-to-make-a-christmas-stocking/
