My Non-Decorated-Decorated Stockings

CIMG9467I bought these white stockings last year at the Dollar Tree with great intentions of embellishing.  Two years later, still boring…and I believe they still have these stockings to sell this year.  CIMG9475So here we are celebrating our first Christmas stockingless…only left with these boring little things.  I needed something quick…easy…something that did not require sewing.  Because when you are sewing handmade Christmas gifts…sewing becomes sooooo overrated.     CIMG9469And remember, I am not buying anything this year… CIMG9470Took my go-to adhesive…clothes pins.  Shopped the tree and house for some ornaments and photos.  Done.  I have done my wife duties.  My husband and I have stockings for Santa…I mean me…to fill. CIMG9472And I did more with my little “love nest” fence.  It is amazing.  I will show you this week. CIMG9466  Do you make your own stocking or go store bought?

  1. Great idea! I love the picture concept and I think I'm going to borrow it!! I hate putting names on stockings, but I get confused after I fill them as to whose are whose?! LOL!! Enjoy your week!!..

  2. That's a cute idea to use the clothes pins. Hmm, I need to get some clothes pins now.

  3. Cute! Great way to be resourceful. :) I still have my Santa stocking from when I was growing up (he's really a little Santa and the "tummy" opens to fill up with stuff) and T has his also. I bought the girls each one from PB with their names embroidered when they were on sale, different years. :)

  4. What a fun and cute idea for your stockings! I had planned on finally making some stockings for us this year, but I think it will be another year gone by without them. We have some mismatched stockings that I bought for cheap because I thought it would only be 1 year with them, this is the 3rd year!

  5. I like the pictures on the stocking. Very cute. My Nanny crocheted my and Christopher's stockings and then stiched our names on them with yarn. We love them.

  7. Such a simple and beautiful idea! I went homemade one year with the stockings and quickly found that heat and bond does not hold up to the goodies left by Santa. Two of them ripped wide open on Christmas eve...

    So now we have store bought. and I love them just as much for being durable :)

  8. I love your photo stocking idea and how you hung them too! You are sooo creative!

    I splurged and bought Pottery Barn Kids stockings one year, however, they were on sale and I bought them after Christmas. I love getting them out each and every year!
