Well the boys are officially on vacation! They are super excited to help me finish my holiday baking and treat-making as well as do some fun holiday crafts. I’ve comboed up a craft idea and home decor idea with these super cute and Festive Stocking Silverware Holders. See, the kids get to make stockings, and I get my table set! It’s a win-win!
I made a few stockings to start so they could see what the finished product should look like. I also cut out the stocking template onto some nice thick card stock for them. I’ve got a HUGE variety of card stock for them to choose from (leftover from my scrapbooking days). I’ve also got lots of options of Scotch Expressions Washi Tape for them to choose from as well, so I’m sure we’re going to have quite a colorful table when all is said and done 🙂
Just pick out colors and patterns that work for you and your table and you’ll be all set! Let’s get started…
Scotch Expressions Washi Tape (Big Zig, Gold or any other color/pattern you like)
Scotch Precision Ultra Edge Non-Stick Scissors
Scotch Scrapbooker’s Glue with Two Way Applicator
Scotch Wrinkle-Free Glue Stick
Card stock (Red, Green or any other color you like)
To create stocking silverware holders, gather all of the materials listed above, including Scotch Expressions Washi Tapes in holiday patterns. Print a stocking template or create your own stocking template. (Print directly onto the card stock to make things easy!) After tracing or printing two stockings onto colored card stock, cut out both pieces. These shapes will become the front and back of your stocking silverware holder, but you will only decorate the front side of one stocking.
To decorate the stocking, cut strips of Scotch Expressions Washi Tape (I chose to use Big Zig). Cover the toe and heel of the stocking with tape, wrapping it around the back of the card stock to secure it. Once the tape has been secured to the toe and heel, trim around the edges of the stocking so excess tape is not hanging over the sides.
Flip over the decorated stocking (with the tape facing down) and apply a thin line of Scotch Scrapbooker’s Glue with Two Way Applicator along the side edges and bottom toe of the stocking. (Do NOT apply glue to the top edge of the stocking because it will be the opening for the silverware.)
Take the second card stock stocking and lay it on top of the glue on the back of the decorated stocking so that the two pieces are stuck together. Your stocking should have an opening at the top.
Unravel a few cotton balls by using your fingers to pull apart the cotton so it becomes a thin layer. The cotton ball will be used to decorate the front of the stocking. Apply a layer of the Scotch Wrinkle-Free Glue Stick to the cuff at the top of the decorated stocking. Press the stretched out cotton to the cuff of the stocking, ensuring that it covers the entire cuff.
To create a decorative tree for the front of your stocking, choose a second piece of card stock. Cut 5-6 short pieces of Scotch Expressions Washi Tape (I used Big Zig again) and attach them to the card stock in a pyramid shape.
Cut out the taped piece of card stock in a triangle shape, like a tree. (Note: You can use card stock and Scotch Expressions Washi Tapes to create any holiday shapes for the front of your stocking.) Apply a layer of the Scotch Wrinkle-Free Glue Stick to the back of the taped tree and attach it to the front of the stocking.
To create a trunk for the tree, I cut a small strip of Scotch Expressions Washi Tape in Gold and placed it vertically under the bottom of the tree.
Place the completed stocking on a table so that it can dry. Once everything has dried, place silverware inside the stocking’s opening and add it to the dinner table for a festive place setting.
I think these stockings turned out super cute and will definitely add an air of festivity to our holiday celebrations!
