Christmas Crafts: Dollar Store Stockings

Finally! It’s christmas season.  It is now socially acceptable to sing christmas carols and wear ugly red sweaters.  Its the most wonderful time of year. In an effort to avoid studying for finals, I decided to make christmas crafts.  My first stop? The dollar store.  That place is a gold mine!  I picked up so many supplies for so many crafts.  The first one….Stocking! I made these stockings for $2 each! And, it only took about 15 minutes! Supplies: Stocking of your choice ($1 each at the dollar store, go figure) Glitter Glue ($1 each at the dollar store) Surprise your roommate like I did, and start the christmas season off right! Cheetahlicious, am I right? Advertisements
