BOGO is so last year. Today’s project is a three-for-one. Three projects for the price of one…well… I guess it’s really three projects for the price of none since we gladly offer up crafty tutorials for free!

We are only a week from Christmas but there is still plenty of time to craft up some pretty gifts – especially since you can snag a ton of Christmas supplies on super sale. PSSST – JOANN has 60% off all their holiday decor! I picked up a pile of canvas stocking during my last trip to JOANN and decided it would be fun to scour my craft room for easy ways to decorate them. I’m excited to show you three ways to decorating a stocking, especially since these are great for packaging gifts! You can quickly make a bunch for every coworker in your office. Feel free to fill one with coal for that nasty guy in accounting.

For our first stocking, we’re adding pom-poms and a monogram! You’ll need:

  • a canvas stocking
  • a small square of felt
  • a mini embroidery hoop
  • alphabet stickers
  • fabric glue
  • craft paint and a foam brush
  • pompom trim

Add paint to the embroidery hoop – I like using green paint to give it the look of a wreath.

Use an alphabet sticker to add a monogram to the fabric. Tip: You can use a bit of hot glue to adhere the sticker, to be sure it doesn’t fall off.

This frosty stocking may be my favorite. I love the simple, modern color palette and the texture of the fur. You’ll need:

  • Cricut EasyPress
  • Faux Fur trim (you can pick this up at JOANN)
  • a white canvas stocking
  • snowflake shapes cut from silver glitter vinyl. (I used my Cricut Maker to create these)
  • Fabric Glue
