{Day 8} Stockings

Christmas mantle

“Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…” Stockings! I have had many different variations of stockings throughout the years, primarily due to the fact that I have changed my decor colors many different times. Now that I am decorating with ivory, golds, and silvers I bought new stockings last year. I like mixing my textures and found that fur and sequined stockings look quite lovely together. Since neither of the stockings will allow embroidery, I decided to “glitter up” some letters to personalize the look a bit. I found the wooden letters at Michaels and bought the beginning letter of my kid’s names, added glitter, and drilled a tiny hole so that I could hang them with fishing wire. Simple and inexpensive! What’s not to love about that? Happy Decorating! If you like it, share it!
