Nordic Style Wooden Christmas Stocking Tag.

Following on from yesterday, and my “eared snowman” I found these wooden stocking tags much easier to work with (part of a pack of 4 x 2 designs from Poundland.

I drew round the wooden stocking and then cut the shape out, but it didn’t matter how careful I was, I still had to trim sparingly and then trim some more, to get a perfect fit.

The stocking top, heel and toe were then cut using a contrasting paper…….

Initially these are tags to put on presents, but after I see no reason why they couldn’t be hung on a tree as a decorations.

Oh Helen, these really are gorgeous! So Scandi in style :)

I was at a workshop last Autumn and picked up a handy trick. We had to glue paper to some MDF large jigsaw shaped pieces and I couldn't see how it would possibly work. But, we cut roughly to size, then used a very wet sort of glue/paste, slapped paper onto MDF and then before it dried used very fine sandpaper around the edges to scrub off the excess paper. Worked like a dream!

Our mate, Mrs A - Norman's Mum - was with me at the time. And she's now a much loved friend, thanks to our monkey adoptions from you! And, she's also barking but don't tell her! :)
