Welcome to Cloches & Lavender where I share crafts, DIY's and decorating ideas.
Let’s talk about Christmas stockings and free pattern. I’m sharing inspiration for Christmas stockings.
Additionally, these stockings are easy and budget friendly.
It was time for us to update our Christmas stockings this year. Because I enjoy making pieces for my home décor myself, I came up with a plan.
After giving this project some thought, I remembered having an old tablecloth, that unfortunately shrank. This is when I began thinking it may work for the base of my stockings.
So, I am going to share a tutorial for how to make Christmas stockings and free pattern too!
First thing, I cut square pieces for my stockings. Because I enjoy old, time worn pieces, I decided I am going to tea stain the tablecloth pieces for this DIY.
How To Make Tea Stain To Add Age To The Holiday DIY
Items Needed For Tea Staining:
- pot of water
- tea bags
For the most part, tea staining fabric is easy for this Christmas project. Add water to a large pot for this project because there are eight pieces for four stockings. Begin heating the water on the stove. Next, add tea bags to the water and stir with a wooden spoon to get the tea in the water. Let the water get warm, not boiling. After the water is warm, turn the flame off. Now, begin adding your fabric pieces to the pot. Stir the fabric in the tea mixture moving the pieces around. Additionally try to move the pieces for the stockings around to evenly coat.
