Dollar Store Stockings

I wanted some off-white stockings for our new fireplace. I found these at the Dollar Store.

I used some wooden stars that I also found for $1 at JoAnn's and painted them dark brown. I cut pieces of vintage fabric into a circle shapes that I stamped our initials. I used some trim that I found on the cuff and a bit of brown velvet ribbon on the hanger.

I used white glue on a foam star stamp and then sprinkled glitter on the stocking itself.

Here's how they turned out.

I love the way the neutral colors work in this room with the stone fireplace.
