How to make a Monogram Christmas Stocking for under $15
Its beginning to look alot like Christmas in my home. I have pretty much done everything I wanted to do except for a few decor items which I will tackle later on. But for now the major things have been completed. My mantle being one of them, when we moved into this house last year one of the first things we did after painting the walls; was paint the Fireplace. We had decided to paint it white with the mantle remaining the wood stained colour it was. Mainly to give it more character, each season I decorate my mantle I use the wood as my focal point to decorate.
This year putting together my Christmas decor was a little difficult because I normally shop for decorations for my theme at the end of the season of the previous year. Now although its a great to do that because everything is discounted I often forget what decorations I had purchased. Until I am mid way through decorating and I realize that I need to get more. My theme for this year is quite neutral compared to other years. I went with Gold, White, and Silver with accents of earthy tones like Pine and Wood.
I have been obsessed with Antlers, Deer heads and Glitter. As I am sure every woman out there decorating her tree is too. I decided that this year I wanted to make my stockings extra special by customizing them with Monogram letters for each family member. I picked up some in expensive Decorative Monogram Letters from Walmart from their Holiday Time line for just under $3 each. Of course they are completely filled with glitter so I had to pick them up.
Since I changed my color scheme for this year I needed to pick up new stockings. Thank fully I had gift cards for Wayfair Canada and I purchase 4 stockings at $18.99 for a pack of 2. I think that is amazing since stockings are so darn expensive these days.
It was really easy to customize my stocking and I wanted to share it with you all as an idea for this year. You can use whatever stockings you have to help cut down the costs of purchasing new ones or you can purchase new ones. Its completely up to you, I am all about re purposing old to make new which I actually did with one stocking. Anyway You can make these at home as well with only a few items needed. So get crafting!
