My MIL made these beautiful stockings out of old ticking and fabric she had laying around back in the late 80’s.  Aren’t they fabulous?

I think I will add some greenery just to brighten it up a bit.  I have an old beat up artificial Christmas tree that isn’t functional.  I have been using the branches for miscellaneous projects.  Some of these greens will be perfect.
