Christmas Decoration

Every year I make some decorations to go on the presents that I give people that can then be hung on a christmas tree. I also make a tree decoration for my three grandchildren which I embroider with their name and year. I hope that I will continue to do this for the years to come, we will see how long I keep it up for. my eldest grand daughter is only 5 so I have a long way to go.

Unfortunately I left it a bit late this year so decided to do something straightforward and chose a stocking. I kept the stocking itself very simple and added embellishment by adding beads, bells and felt balls as tassels hanging from the stocking.

I felt quite pleased making these as everything I used I already had in my stash. I think it always feels good to find a use for the stuff that we collect.

Here they are added to presents, I added a little chocolate treat and a candy cane to the stocking to put it to use.

To create a label for the presents I cut a piece of shiny hologram card the same shape as the stocking and wrote my message on the back.

I thought I would enter the moving along with the times challenge 61, anything but a card.

Here are the tree decorations that I made for my grandchildren. They are a bit bigger than the present embellishments. I filled them up with sweets so I know they liked them!

Thanks for visiting me. It would be lovely if you left me a comment, but I know how hard that is so it is OK if you don't.
