I printed the center subway art from Eighteen25 last year, and I love it so much! Spray painted my frame red, and included some other simple decorations. Nothing too crafty. Now to my stockings…I am SO bummed I can’t find the page I ripped out of a magazine years ago (I had it right here yesterday, but it must have been needed by the aliens who stole it). It was a crate & barrel magazine with felt stockings and a tree skirt. I knew when I started my family that I didn’t want to get a stocking for my first child that I wouldn’t be able to match with my 4th child, so when I found this ad for inpiration for something I could make, I was really happy! My mom helped me a few years ago get started, and I just made my youngests a few days ago. Boys get stripes, girls get circles (I ran out to make my hubby’s, I’ll get to that in a year or two).
I really like the simplicity of the look and pop of color.
The stockings are actually pre-made from Michael’s a year or two ago. Not sure if they still have them. Could easily be assembled with felt. Ironed on some cirlce’s, and some are stickers as felt! I had 3 of the kids names embroidered at the top (blurred on here) I need to get the adults and our youngests done. I think I’d like to add some stitching here and there for extra texture, but for now…this is how it is;) Link up if you have pics to your mantle, I’d love to see!
