Personalize your Christmas Stocking with Joy

Taking a simple stocking from plain to personality is easy with Joy embroidered letters…

I picked up a simple linen stocking at my local craft store.

It was nice enough, but it needed some personality.

I decided to embellish the stocking with Joy iron-on letters, ribbons and trim.

Here’s what I used on my stocking:                (*amazon affiliate link)

Directions:

  • Depending on the fabric and lining content of your stocking, you can either iron on the letters or glue them onto the stocking with craft glue.
  • Make a simple bow by folding the ribbon over and tying the center tight with the twine.
  • Add a jingle bell and a small piece of pine craft stem to the center of the bow and tie again with the twine.
  • Add button to both ends of the twine and tie to the center of the bow.
  • Trim the ends of the bow.
  • I switched out the plain wood button on the center of the button for one that better fits my style.
  • Glue trim and bow onto the front of the stocking with craft glue.
  • Embellish with a Christmas pin.
  • Add presents or greenery and berries to the inside of the stocking.

You could hang that stocking from the mantel or….

Doesn’t it make a great addition in the center of my Christmas Wreath.

Painted Happiness Pillow

Happiness Pillow…

One of my favorite childhood memories was the summer I was cast as Lucy in the library’s

production of  “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown”.

My favorite song was “happiness is”.  At the end of the show we all held hands and sang.

Still makes me happy.

When it comes to using Joy Iron-on letters…

I’ve dyed them, inked them and even misted the letters, I never thought about painting them.

Joy White Embroidered Iron On Letters are great for creating any color you can imagine.

They even work great with acrylic paint.
