DIY Burlap Stocking Advent Calendar | Making the World Cuter

This project…oh I am so excited about it!

I have had this rolling around in my head forever, and I think it turned out cuter than I had hoped, and that hardly ever happens!

Burlap Stocking Advent Calendar

First you will need a little more than a half yard of burlap.
I drew a stocking on a piece of paper and cut it out for a pattern. It is just a mini stocking, a little smaller than my hand.
I folded the burlap so that I could cut one whole stocking in one cut like this.DIY Burlap Stockings Advent Calendar | Making the World CuterThen I laid the stocking on the burlap and cut it out.

    I love those little burlap advent calendar. How cute! I am going to make one for my store. How adorable. I think I will drag the stamp pad over the clothes pins to make the clothes pins look a little aged too.
