Christmas Stocking Silverwear Holder
I saw this cute picture on Ramblings of a Crazy Woman last year and thought the kids might like it this year since one of their jobs is setting the table. Ours are pretty simple – I’m trying to be better at letting the kids direct their own art projects and sit back more! – but they’re cute and the boys are happy.
We used a stocking template and traced it ten times onto cheap red felt (20 cents per piece at Wal-Mart), then I free-handed a white stocking top and traced that five times. I was going to have the boys glue the top and bottom together, but they weren’t doing so hot keeping the glue on the edges. So they glued the white to the top red piece, and I sewed the outline. Then I put a line of hot glue on the finished stocking, and the boys glittered. Ta-da!
