More Holiday Decorating With Burlap And Sparkly Pipe Cleaners

I made some no-sew Christmas stockings with my beloved hot glue gun.
I found these at the dollar store when I was searching for some white Christmas stockings.
I thought they were pretty cute,
but do you think that I could
leave well enough alone?
Nope.

 I wanted to tie them into my beach themed Christmas I'm creating this year.
 I cut the burlap I had so that at least one end
had the non fray-able edge to it and placed that edge at the top.
I hot glued it on first. I then took this already finished piece of fabric and lace that I found at a yard sale and hot glued it over the fray-able bottom edge of the burlap. 

 I cut out a seahorse on felt using a stencil. I hot glued the seahorse, some shells and some silver pipe cleaners for the monogram and seahorse eye.

If I wasn't using a beach theme, I probably could have cut out a snowman shape and glued on white buttons instead of the shells. There are so many ways to go with this, angels and feathers would be super cute too.

They are fabulous!!! Why can't I think of doing stuff like that? I may not be very creative, but I can copy. So I may just do that. If you don't mind. But I wouldn't do the beach thing.

I love your little stockings! The burlap just looks so great against the white and it is perfect for a beachy theme.
