You know with all of the FROZEN mania from the past year, we had to include a Frozen-inspired project or two for the holidays! First up, my version of Frozen Christmas stockings. I started with these plain $1.00 stockings from Target:
For the Elsa stocking, I used a small piece of aqua swirl fur fabric from JoAnn Fabric, and about 18 inches of a sheer snowflake material we got at Walmart last year for our Frozen party. I gathered the sheer material with my fingers to create a little volume at the top of the stocking, and glued it in place, just underneath the white felt section of the original stocking. Then I glued some lace trim over the top of that, and added a layer of silver glitter tape on top. The last step was creating the furry trim at the opening of the stocking. I cut my piece of fur so that it would wrap all the way around the top of the stocking. (You want to make sure that it it is double the size of the finished height of the fur trim, so you will have enough to tuck inside.)
I “hemmed” the bottom edge of the fur with a line of hot glue and pressed it under. Then attached that edge just over the silver glitter tape and lace. I glue it all the way around to the back of the stocking. Then you just simply fold the rest of your fur fabric inside the stocking opening and glue it inside. That’s it! I actually used this same technique last year with fabric to cover some monogrammed stockings, and it worked great:
For the bottom of the stocking I used a scrap of blue velvet I had in my fabric stash. I attached the velvet with hot glue and then cut a piece of black felt to resemble Anna’s dress. I added some gold trim, and then started on the top section. I glued the pink pom pom trim around the stocking first, then added the pink fleece to the top of the stocking to represent her winter cape. I love how simple it is, but it definitely looks like Anna!
My daughter was in heaven when I showed her these stockings! She chose the Elsa one, and decided that her baby sister gets Anna. We can’t wait to put them out on Christmas Eve. In the meantime, they are hanging up in her room and looking very festive!
