Fortunately for me, my craft closet has lots of unfinished projects from Christmas past. After a quick look through my closet I find several projects to get me started and hopefully can finished quickly.
A few years ago, I sewed some stockings for Christmas from a beautiful plaid fabric. At the time, the family was my husband, the cat and I. This year with a new little one, we need one more stocking for the mantle. With the fabric found, I can begin.
Materials for project:
I used a stocking I had made before for a quick template.
I sewed the sides. Cut a flap for the top and sew to attach.
Create a loop from a rectangle of fabric and sew to attach to the fold. Voila! Done.
For stocking templates:

I have all I need in my craft closet for a handy holiday card wreath.
Materials for Project:
The instructions are quite simple. Affix the clothespins alternating back and forth. Pretty much it.
I affixed the first clothspins at the top, bottom and the sides.
Then I attach the clothespins in betweens. I used hot glue. I'm not sure about the longevity of it, but if it falls apart, I'll know to use wood glue like the instructions said.
Yay! I finished 2 projects today!
Link to the directions:
Several years ago, I bought a kit to create a bunch of holiday cards. Note the year on the cards 2008, which I believe was the year before I purchased the kit. It had cards, buttons, fabric flowers, and stickers.
I had fun messing around with the buttons and the hot glue. Now I just need a good family photo to go inside.
