Check out two wonderful holiday crafting ideas from Women’s Day. With these two complete tutorials and templates you will have the mantel decorated in a flash. You can choice any colors that fit your décor and surprise your family and visitors at how crafty you are.
These Felt Stockings were hung and crafted with care, using snowy white felt and bright colors for flair. Trace our stocking template onto three pieces of felt, and then cut them out, using pinking shears for a decorative edge on the front. Sew the pieces together, and embellish with felt poinsettias, trees and ribbon-trimmed packages. Add extra punch to greenery on the mantel by weaving in a handmade Holly Garland, too.
