On the 12th Day of Christmas, we are making stockings. And instead of making a stocking to hang on the mantel I did something a little different. How would you like to make a stocking vase? Last year I made vases from salad dressing jars.

It’s Day 12 and we are ready to Hang the Stockings by the Chimney with Care
First off you will need to buy a readymade red velvet stocking. I found mine at Dollar Tree.
Once again I turned to my jar stash. This time I found a good size plastic peanut butter jar. Insert it into the stocking to make sure it fits.
Cut off the white part of the stocking. Fiddle with the top of the stocking to get the size of the stocking. Cut the excess material off.
Take the jar out of the stocking so you can sew the white part to the stocking. Pin wrong sides together to sew. Cut off excess fabric. Sew the side seam.
Then turn the white fur over and put the jar back in.
Stuff the heel and toe with batting. Adjust the batting around the jar.
I rummaged through my Christmas flowers I use for crafting to dress up the back of the stocking. Just hot glue a poinsettia and leaves to the back.
I put in floral picks to dress it up. The stocking vase will also work for flowers or greenery. It is a nice way to give a gift of flowers. So how would you like to make a stocking vase? Have I gotten you to think about it?
