DIY Silhouette and Antler Stocking Holders

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Krazy Glue for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

The Christmas season has struck early this year at the Hyde household. I think with the cold weather already settling in and our new house, I can’t wait to get all the decorations out and cozy this place up for the holidays. I am picturing a snuggly Christmas morning with the fire going and Molly all excited to open her gifts:) So, I’ve already started crafting some new decor. Mom and I made some table runners and centerpieces last weekend {which I’ll share soon} and this week I made these cute stocking holders.

  • wood blocks {ours were 6″x8″ on a 6″x2″ bottom block}
  • stencil material {I used adhesive transfer paper}
  • X-acto knife
  • Krazy strong, Krazy fast
  • faux deer antlers {I got mine here}
  • paint {I used a gold metallic}
  • a computer

Step 1: create your silhouettes. I used the tutorial from Jones Design Company and it worked great. My only caution is if you have dark hair {which all three of us do}, you’ll need to paint over your hair in the picture with a light color for it to work. It’s one more step but it was pretty quick. This is Molly:)

Once my silhouettes were created, I simply cut out and peeled a piece of adhesive transfer paper and stuck it to my computer screen to trace the silhouettes. A craft paper cutting machine would work too but mine wasn’t cooperating. Then I stuck the traced piece of adhesive to my wood and cut it with an x-acto knife.

Step 3: Peel it off.
