Steps

  1. Step 1

    Print template. Cut out and trace stocking or dreidel onto a piece of crepe paper.

  2. Step 2

    Place a sheet of sheer fabric on top of the crepe paper, and secure with a few straight pins.

  3. Step 3

    Sew a straight stitch with a sewing machine along the template lines you have drawn to attach both pieces. Leave the top of the dreidel or stocking open.

  4. Step 4

    Being careful not to cut into the sewn line, cut around the shape with decorative scissors.

  5. Step 5

    Fill with M&M's.

    Fold over top piece of dreidel or stocking to create a cuff. Use a small staple to close the dreidel or stocking and attach a ribbon loop for hanging. Embellish the top with a sticker to cover the staple.
