Dollar Store Stockings

So last year I decided that I wanted to replace my mismatched but sweet stockings with some that matched my decor but I didn't have a lot of time or money to spend.  Off to the Dollar Store!!
I found some simple but pretty satin stockings and knew I could personalize them pretty easily. I liked the green and gold colored stockings but not so much the red ones. So I got 4 gold for the kids, 2 green for the hubs and I, and red paint for the embellishments.
Supplies:
Stocking
Wooden letter (I got these at Hobby Lobby but have seen some at the dollar store)
Paint/paint brush
Glitter
Glue
Ribbon
Step 1: Paint your letter and let it dry.
Step 2: Paint letter face with glue and sprinkle with glitter, let dry.
Step 3: Now just take secure your letter to your stocking with the ribbon and DONE!
 I LOVE how they came out!!  They totally fit in with my color scheme.
And they were so easy to make!

They look so perfect with the rest of my mantel and tree!
