Every holiday season (except one) I have gone home for the holidays. We sit around the fire and watch the snow. So this week I decided to use LG739 Stockings by the fire:
This one was a bit time consuming, but the results were worth it!
1) Paste fire and the andirons with white matt paste on cream paper, let dry.
2) Trace socks on both printed paper (I used wrapping paper) and white paper, cut out. **Yes I know mine came out backwards, watch that when you try yours**
3) Paste the andirons again with silver paste, let dry.
4) Stencil fire with pigment inks.
5) Cut a rectangle out of brown paper (for the fireplace) and sponge color around edge.
6) Place paper with fire on it behind fireplace, cut off excess.
7) Cut of sock toe on the traced white pieces, glue to decorative paper as shown.
8) Cover white sock tops with glue and white flock.
9) Cut out silver andirons. Attach with double stick tape.
10) Attach socks to top of fireplace, glue bead at top.
Now it's your turn.
