Embellish handmade or store-bought stockings with felt holly berries and leaves.
Martha Stewart Living
To make berries, follow the instructions for our Fall Berry Wreath, but cut 21 triangular strips (to make 9 holly clusters) and omit the wire.
Download holly-leaf templates, and print onto card stock. Cut out templates, and trace onto green felt with a disappearing-ink pen (you'll need 20 leaves to make 9 clusters). Cut out leaves.
Using fabric glue, attach holly leaves to fabric that will serve as front of handmade stocking (or on front of store-bought stocking). Using a sewing machine with dark-green thread, stitch a "vein" 2/3 of the way up each leaf, starting at the base, to secure (hand-stitch if using a store-bought stocking).
Using red thread, hand-stitch berries onto leaves.
