Christmas Stockings: To Stuff or not?

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone has your Christmas tree’s and decor up! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I plan on doing a few Christmas posts in the next few weeks since I just adore the holidays. We had everything up the weekend before Thanksgiving. That was a first for us and I think we will do that for now on. Besides, everyone needs more time to enjoy their tree right?

Today’s Post is on making your stockings look fuller.I got these gems off of the home decor website, WayFair.  I’ve never bothered to do that up until recently. My husband says that his family used newspaper to fill it out. I was thinking I could do that to ours and they would for once hang right. I had extra brown paper bags( I like that it’s heavy paper) from Thanksgiving last week and decided to use that.I placed all 4 stockings on sight

Took the Brown paper bag and cut it into 4 lengthwise strips
I took one of the strips and twist it around a bit( not to much)
Place the strips in the bottom of the stocking
Fill it out to however fullness you want and that’s it
