There are many different types of do-it-yourself decorations. We thought we would offer one craft in detail — making Christmas stockings. For this craft, you will need about a half yard of one color of felt, and a couple of sheets of craft felt in other colors for decoration and embellishment. You will also need craft glue or a hot glue gun, scissors or pinking shears, newspaper for the pattern, some straight pins, and — for the finishing touches — sequins, beads or fabric paint.
