  1. It would be so hard to decide what to make from all of these cool choices! I’m glad my family stuck w/ one stocking for our entire lives. No decisions to make!

  2. Avi’s Elf Style stocking is adorable! So much personality in that one!

  3. I love the purple fancy boot and the cowboy boot. And I’m obsessed with Fanciful Twist’s take – on just about everything, actually!

  4. I love the sparkly no sew stocking & the pink glittery house and tree on the mantel in the first picture!

    The ones made out of screen are great!
