Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope that everyone is enjoying their day & having fun with their families. Tomorrow kicks off the beginning of the Christmas season and I could not be more excited. I love the holiday season. Everything about it, the sounds, the smells & the lights just make me happy.
The holidays for me are all about making memories. Before having my daughter, I had a perfectly coordinated tree with fancy holiday knick knacks. Those have slowly been replaced through the years with homemade ornaments & keepsakes & I adore it. Some of my favorite keepsakes are made out of my daughter’s foot and hand prints. This year I wanted to make a special stocking for our new home & new mantle.
I purchased an inexpensive stocking for a couple of dollars. I am sure you could pick one up at the Dollar Store.
I painted my daughter’s foot in white & pressed it onto the stocking. I used black paint & dotted on the eyes & mouth.
I cut up some felt pieces for the hat & scarf. I used a Sharpie to stripe the hat and scarf and added glue and glitter for a little holiday sparkle.
I glued the hat and gloves into place and added a pom pom to the end of the hat. I glued on a nose and buttons.
We finished off our snowman with pipe cleaner arms.
It came out so cute. I can’t wait to hang it up.
