Shabby Holiday Stockings

Is everyone ready for the weekend? I wanted to share this project that is easy to create using some Pink Rose trim and Pearl trims from KARLAS001's Etsy. The backing of these stockings are just basic thick cardstock cut into a stocking shape. I cut off the individual roses on the trim to fill out the shape. Instead of using ribbon as the stocking hanger, I opted to use the pearl trims.

These Mini Crystal Clear Butterflykisses Butterflies added a cute touch. Using other trims to decorate the top and some pearl embellishments for the buttons they completed the look.

This is a holiday project that is easy to create as little handmade gifts. You can also use other colored trims that you already have in your stash.

I used the White Flat Back Pearl Trim for these two stockings.

For this one, I used the Pink Flat Back Pearl Trim to coordinate with this light pink rose trim.
On this stocking, it was initially a cream rose trim but I had dyed it with my Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Spray in Cadbury Milk Chocolate. The trim I chose to go with this brown color was the Bronze Pearl Strand Trim.

I truly love how these stockings turned out and I hope my scrappy friends like them. To watch a tutorial on how you can make a similar project like these, you can view my video here. As always thanks for taking the time to stop by. Have a great weekend!
