Christmas Stocking Silverware Holders

By susan 33 441

I had some old buffalo check curtains that I had not used for a few years, could not sell them at garage sales and could not part with them. I wanted to use them for something else, but until Christmas I did not know what. At Christmas I saw the stores selling mini stockings for silverware holders and realized I could make them for much less than purchasing them, out came my old curtains. They were faded on the window side, but that didn't matter.

At Christmas I put in some Christmas mints in the bottom, threw in a couple napkins and the silverware. You could also add hangers so everyone could take their new ornaments home for their tree. Simple and barely cost a dime; I bought the ribbon at the 1/2 price sale. You don't have to be an experienced sewer to do this. Enjoy!

Stocking for holding silverware.

  • 2 inch wide craft ribbon
  • 1/2 inch wide craft ribbon
  • hot glue gun
  • bell

Steps:

  1. Use your pinking shears to cut out the stocking.
  2. Sew seams up about 3/8 inch from the edges, back stitching the tops.
  3. Add Christmas ribbon (2 inch wide) to the tops with a hot glue gun.
  4. Add a Dollar Tree bell and a bow made from a similar ribbon (1/2 inch wide) gluing them at the side.
  5. Stuff with whatever goodies, silverware, and napkins.
  6. You could also add some greenery for more color.

Viola!
