DIY: Glittering Stockings

This is the boyfriend and my first Christmas living together.  It’s exciting and fun… and I have been going a little over the top trying to make our apartment as festive as possible.  (I’ll share some pics of our tree and other holiday decorations later in the week.)  As I might have mentioned here, stockings are one of my favorite parts of the holiday season.  I ordered these lovely stockings off of Amazon, and decided that the Shimmer Fabric Paintthat Tulip had sent me would be just perfect for the lettering.

The process of decorating the stockings was very easy; I basically would do one letter on each stocking, let dry, and repeat. The paint goes on very easily, but once it dried, I would usually add another layer – just for maximum glittery impact!

Before you know it, you’ll have a beautiful, personalized stocking.  I made three – for my boyfriend, our roommate, and me…  Now on to my favorite part… stuffing the stockings!

I love how cozy and festive our apartment is getting!

Disclosure:  Tulip sent me the fabric paint and paid me a small fee for my time to create this tutorial.
