Burlap Christmas Stocking!

Hi everyone and welcome back to my Happy Place!....
Oh my goodness!
Christmas is almost here!

We all played a wee game guessing what each one of us had done with the Burlap stocking Jo had given us all!

Its funny how there is a kind of theme or style we all work with and was great to see what all the Design Team though!

Some thought I would do Shabby Chic as that's really been my theme on most of my Christmas projects and wow the house is looking great with all the decorations!
But then there were the others who thought flowers Lace pearls reds a touch of green with soft colours!

Well I would say there is a combination of all so a Shabby Chic/Traditional with the use of paper! yes even paper went into my stocking!

This weeks Design Team project is a burlap stocking!
Ready to fill with goodies.

I started off with gluing down some pretty Christmas themed paper,
 followed by layers of lace, ribbons and twine!
The fun embellishing began with making a selection of flowers that I clustered around where the stocking hangs,
 then added pearl trim, felt leaves bows and tied on two bells in matching colours.
The embellishing is similar on the toe to keep it all matching
 with the addition of three candles inked for some colour tucked in behind the flowers.
I hope you enjoyed this creation as I did creating something pretty to fill with goodies!
To check out the next Design Teams creation
 is Beth and  my guess on what she would produce would be something that moves as she makes projects that are very interactive...hmmm lets see if I was close!
