 I LOVE pretty fabric!! 

So when Online Fabric Store contacted me to see if they could send me some fabric for a Christmas project, I thought it would be really fun!

metallic linen fabrics

It took me quite awhile to decide on what fabric I wanted – there were so many to choose from!! In the end I chose 4 different METALLIC linen fabrics — SO pretty!!! I decided to make some pillows, little mini trees and some new stockings for my GOLD and WHITE Christmas theme.

Here’s how I made my metallic cones and stockings:

I made a little forest of trees for my mantel! I just cut out some trees out of posterboard, hot glued them together and then covered them in metallic linen fabric. I added some trim and ribbon. I think they turned out so pretty! All I did was I bought one tree cone from my craft store and traced the shape onto poster board and made a template. Then I used the template to cut out more poster board trees and  fabric for the trees. I hot glued posterboard trees together and then hot glued the fabric onto the posterboard cones and then added some embellishments.

For the past couple of years I have wanted to make new stockings. It’s been a little intimidating for me. This year I decided to give it a try. Here’s what I did: how to make christmas stockings

I bought a cheap stocking and used it as a pattern. And I found this tutorial from Sew Like My Mom. Be sure to check it out for a great step-by-step tutorial on how to make stockings with a lining. I was so excited that they turned out — with a cuff AND a lining – yay!!

    I LOVE this, Jen! I love how you switch up your decor so often. I wish I could find the drive to do that, but it’s not the stage of life that I am in I guess. I love all of your metallic touches, ESPECIALLY that wreath!! You are the mantel queen! Also, isn’t that Shelley’s dog? I love that you borrowed him as a prop. Haha. He really is the perfect touch in that picture! :)

  45. The glittery linen would be just the right thing for our new stockings. I was thinking burlap, but this is far more elegant.

  46. How pretty! We have such similar taste :) I made some linen cuffed stockings last year in the same color scheme – I love the neutral/gold theme! Here’s the post: http://www.mygirlishwhims.com/2012/11/christmas-stocking-tutorial-with-wooden.html

  47. I am swooning over your wreath! I love, love, love it! Going to scour your site and see if I can find if you made it so I can make one too! :-)

  48. I love the classy look of the room. It is so beautiful. This past year I updated my Christmas decorations. The stocking are a great neutral that will match many different decors.
