Curly Toes Christmas Stocking Pins

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

This week I made 30 of these curly toe Christmas stockings. They are 5 inches tall and have pin backs on the back. They are inexpensive and easy to make. I am giving them as thank you gifts to some amazing women. Don't you think they will make cute lapel pins?

They are cut out of felt and glued together. I made all 30 in three evenings of watching TV. The first night I cut them out. The second night I glued them together. And the third night I glittered. You will find the pattern below, try making a couple!

You need:
  • 2 colors of felt
  • fine glitter (I used my Sample Pack of Glitter and had several colors to choose)
  • white craft glue
  • 3 round Sparkle gems ( any color, notice the green stocking has green gems?)
  • black marker
  • scissors
  • small flat paintbrush
  • pin back
Try this:
1. Cut out pattern. Trace two each on felt. Cut out.
2. Glue together. Two layers will give your stocking a better thickness.
3. Paint glue on the heel of the stocking, and down the front of the boot so it looks like a placket.
4. Set three gems into placket.
5. Sprinkle glitter to cover all wet glue. Let dry.
6. Glue pin back to top back of stocking.

Wouldn't they be cute in bright colors too?
Glitter on!
