Cheap and Easy Stockings

I have had these el cheapo felt stockings for a few years and thought I'd dress them up and try to make them look a little cuter. So, I cut some of my favorite fabrics (toile and checks of course), hot glued them on, and then trimmed them out with some lime green ribbon. They look much better than they did before! They would be even cuter with some nicer trim, like one with beads or tassels, but I was just using what I had and I like the red and lime green together. Check back with me tomorrow afternoon for a tour of my Christmas decor in my living room!
