All Things Beautiful – Guest Post


What a joy it is to be a guest here at the beautiful Shabby Art Boutique!

My name is Janis and I blog at All Things Beautiful.

I am a Texas girl who lives in the "Hill Country" in the southern part of our big state. I enjoy sharing my decor ideas, diy projects and a few of my favorite recipes.

Today I want to show you my burlap and velvet stockings that I made.

I chose burlap (I ordered a finer weave and it’s less smelly) and ivory velvet as my fabric choice.

Burlap is all the rage, you know. I may be late to the party, but I made my own version.

I wanted a basic shape with a contrasting cuff of velvet, and then I personalized each one with different adornments.

These faux wooden buttons looked manly enough for the hubster.
A box of vintage lace revealed these little beauties
for my own Christmas stocking.
That same vintage lace box had this sweet little lace collar for my daughter’s stocking, and it fit the cuff perfectly!
Sometimes, the odds are in your favor.
I went rummaging in my son’s room to find something
interesting for his stocking.
Oh yes, his jar of vintage keys was just the thing!
They even jingle!!
I found these beautiful glittered initials and had to add them to the stockings.
If you’d like to make your own, you can download
the simple stocking pattern HERE.
I’d love for you to see more of my handmade Christmas decor,

Thank you Kerryanne for allowing me to share my
Christmas stockings with you and your readers.

Have a blessed Christmas!
