The stocking ornament is from SmoothFoam which I had received last year for a blog hop that the Robin's Nest and SmoothFoam was hosting together.
I started by lightly sanding and applying a coat of gesso which once dry I painted the stocking with red acrylic paint. I cut the cuff of the stocking from White on White Classic Glitter Swirl Cardstock. I applied antique Mod Podge to the stocking and then sprinkled glitter all over. Once dry I painted one of the packages, added some lace around the cuff and I put it away for the year.
I dug it out and this is how I finished it off. I used some Prima poinsettias and added a sequin and dew drop to the center for an elegant look.
I added a mini bottle brush tree, along with bells, pearl sprays and miniature Christmas lights.
I finished off with a little gold trim and a holly leaf.
Don't you think it looks lovely on my four foot tinsel tree I got for 66% off at Hobby Lobby last year. It was a floor model and pre-lit. It reminds me of my great grandmother's tinsel tree but hers had a color wheel with it. I remember sitting at her house at Christmas time watching the tree turn different colors…such great memories. :-)
