How to make Easy His & Hers Christmas Stockings
Step 1: Cut the lace trim to the width of the top of the stocking. Once cut glue in place with a glue gun. Then place on about ten different sized colourful pom-poms and glue in place.
Step 2: Cut a piece of twine or string about 20cm long and tie in a little knot at the end. Glue the knot inside the stocking at the top edge.
Step 3: Create the His & Hers text on Cricut Design Space in your chosen font. I went with a bold font for ‘His’ and a cursive font for ‘Hers’ just to mix it up a little bit.
Step 4: Once you have created the fonts, cut them out using the Cricut Explore Air 2. Also, cut 6 different sized gold stars to go around the text.
Step 5: When the vinyl is cut weed off any excess vinyl you don’t need and turn on the Cricut Easy Press. Heat it and press on your letters and stars on each stocking.
