DiY Drop Cloth Christmas Stockings

 I wanted to make some new drop cloth Christmas stockings this year.

Here are the ones I made three years ago.

And here are the ones I made last night.

It was as simple as tracing out a pre-bought stocking for the shape onto drop cloth, then cutting the stockings out and sewing them up.

I bought transfer paper for our names and the reindeer silhouettes, so I simply designed them in Pages, then printed them on the transfer paper in reverse.

Then a hot iron to transfer the images.

Next, I added a few little sprigs and tiny pinecones recycled from an old decoration.

And for the hanger I used some recently bought thick Christmas twine.

And it is definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
