Rustic Christmas Stocking

Hi everyone! Canvas Corp and Petaloo Flowers are blog hopping together and I want to share a  project I created using the Large Burlap Stocking and Petaloo DIY Burlap Flowers which can be painted or misted to compliment your projects. I don't own a sewing machine and I sure didn't want to hand sew everything to the stocking so I used Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac. It "grabs" fast and dries quick which I love!
I started by adding from my own stash green Ric Rac and red pom poms to the cuff of the stocking. 


I misted two of the larger DIY flowers with Gold Glimmer Mist and set a side. The smaller DIY flower I sprayed Plain Jane Baseboard Fire Mist into a disposable bowl and added a couple of drops of water and mixed and with a small paint brush applied the mixture to the flower and let dry. Once the larger flowers are dry I used the leftover Fire Baseboard mist and lightly applied color around the center.


I used the Holly Branch diecut to cut out three holly leaves from a 12x12 sheet of Green Burlap. I then applied Mod Podge to both sides of the leaves and once dry I spritzed on one side Kiwi Glimmer Mist.
Next I made a couple bows from the Natural Jute and Lime Green Hemp. Also I cut two three inch pieces of lace from the Lace Trimmings Assorted Pack, gathered in the center and  folded to make what looks like a fan and tied off with the Natural Jute. Now for the fun part arranging everything on the cuff. I added in a couple of buttons too for some visual interest.


Now it is finished and ready for Santa to fill with goodies. If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.
