Toot Toot Tuesday-Tutorial: Burlap Stocking Advent Calendar

This project...oh I am so excited about it!

I have had this rolling around in my head forever, and I think it turned out cuter than I had hoped, and that hardly ever happens!

First you will need a little more than a half yard of burlap.

I drew a stocking on a piece of paper and cut it out for a pattern. It is just a mini stocking, a little smaller than my hand.

I folded the burlap so that I could cut one whole stocking in one cut like this.Then I laid the stocking on the burlap and cut it out.
Then you will have something like this.

Then either by hand, machine (or glue gun for the non-sewer) stitch it up, leaving the top opened of course.It doesn't matter how good your sewing skills are, because you will just turn it inside out...It will turn out adorable...Then do that again 23 more times! It's not as bad as it sounds, it actually went by quite quickly.
Then if you want to embellish (and I think you do) choose some ribbon.
Use a glue gun and run a line of glue along the front of the stocking.
Then wrap your ribbon over and around your stocking and either make a loop, bow, or tie.

I did 6 of 4 different ribbons and styles...

...jingle bells
...knots
...buttons
and bows.
After the stockings were complete, I took my Fiskars circle punch and punched a bunch of brown circles.Then I inked the edges.Then I stamped numbers on the brown circles-you could use stickers, stamps or your own handwriting, my friend lent me these cute stamps and I don't know who makes them.
I found these at Michaels for about $3, and they are the exact size of the circle punch :).
Then I mod podged the number to the wooden circle.Then do a light coat over the top of the number, and let dry.On the back of the wooden circle, they are self adhesive-so handy!
Stick the circles to a wooden clothes pin.
I had to do the twenties on two circles...
Then I clipped the stocking to some jute, that I hung from the mantle.....and you're done!
Ready to fill with little treats, surprises, little slips of paper with activities or whatever!
Love it!

Those turned out super cute- they would look amazing across the stage at the ward christmas party and then the kids could grab one as they left!!

I love those little burlap advent calendar. How cute! I am going to make one for my store. How adorable. I think I will drag the stamp pad over the clothes pins to make the clothes pins look a little aged too.
Thanks for sharing your project, I am now a follower. Won't you follow me too?
