To make the above stockings I used buckrem for the body then decorated them with fabric, antique tinsel ribbon, glass glitter and sequins. I personalised them by adding my Grandchildrens names and cloth photos I printed from my computer. Antique paper lables also work very well.
Last year I gave many stocking like these as gifts and also sold them on eBay. They were a big hit! Have fun :-}
I've received many questions asking about the white fence under my large white tree. Yes, the fence in the first photo and the fence under my tree are the same one. It was made by my Grandfather Louie back in the 1940s. As children my sister Angela, brother Louie, and I loved sitting under my Grandmother Lena's tree looking at her wonderful little village. The village was filled with skaters, sledders, carolers, trees, houses and churches. To us it was truly a wonderland! The only things left from under her tree are that fence and one male lead ice skater and I am now the happy owner of them.
