Rhinestone Stocking Directions:
Stuff the stocking with newspaper to ensure there are no wrinkles in the bag that will prevent the rhinestones from adhering to the stocking. This will also avoid glue from traveling through the burlap and making the two sides of the stocking stick together.
Using a glue gun, place dots of glue on the rhinestone and place the rhinestone on the stocking, making sure it has a good grip on the burlap. Continue with as many rhinestones as you wish, working out from your first rhinestone.
Let dry, then remove the newspaper. Place your favorite fabulous gifts for your lady friend in the stocking and enjoy!
Glitter Stocking Directions:
Stuff the stocking with newspaper. This step prevents the paint from seeping onto the other side of the stocking through the burlap.
Choose your paint colors, place them in a paint tray, and start painting! Go ahead, get crazy with the paint, making swirls, zigzags, and more.
Sprinkle glitter on the wet paint to make sure it sticks. Let dry, then remove the newspaper and enjoy!
