I love the burlap & canvas Christmas stockings and decided to make my own. I've also always wanted matching stockings for the 6 of us.
First I purchased a small drop cloth from Lowe's for about $5. I bought the ribbon & buttons from Joann Fabrics. The ribbon was $4.95 and the buttons were $1.29/pair.
I used my old stockings that my grandmother made to trace a pattern. I cut it out and then traced it onto the canvas. Once the canvas was cut I then sewed them together. I used the edges of the canvass for the loops to hang the stockings. After they were put together I sewed on the ribbon and then the button.
The wooden letters I also found at Joann Fabrics and stained them with Early American Minwax stain. I put a few coats of poly on them. I haven't drilled holes in the yet to hang them with the stockings but I'll get to that soon.
