What does one do when one has a pile of stockings lying around the house?
One decides to use them as a Christmas gift.
But who, in their right mind, needs 25 stockings about 2" x 4"?
So, this one becomes creative.
One lays them out on the kitchen table and a light bulb goes off in my head . . .
How about an Advent Stocking Garland? What do you think?
Use some Christmas-y ribbon, find some mini-clothes pins (I either found these in the scrapbook department, or maybe the baby-clothes department of AC Moore) and hang the stockings on the ribbon.
VIOLA! Advent Stockings!
To add to the Advent theme, I found 25 days worth of Bible verses, typed them up, printed them off, laminated them (well, really, I used clear packaging tape) so they will last through the years. So now, everyday from Dec 1 through Dec 25, a different section of the Bible can be read that tells about the upcoming birth of Jesus Christ.
