Advent Stockings are finally done!






























I tried to get a good pic and none of these made me really happy, but here they are! i think they are really cute. I thought of a lot of ways that I could put them up like hang them all on a little tree, or post them to a board covered in cute fabric, but I really wanted them hung on a strand. So last night I crocheted the red strand then tied them and finished it off with a button.

I'm not sure if they'll get anything in them this year, but here's some ideas to fill the stockings:

chocolate! of course
marbles
kazoo
harmonica
money
love notes
bible verses
poems
pebbles
feathers
little people
little animals(fake of course, come on!)

These are so much fun.

I googled some other ideas for Advent calendars that I thought I'd share with you all.

great idea. i was originally looking for ideas to make a wooden house advent calendar, but think I'll make the stockings instead. At least for next year anyway.
