I think one of the best things about Christmas are the stockings. Another best thing is having extra people join you for the holidays. Particularly if their own families are far away.
This year we will have a couple extras on Christmas day and I wanted to do stockings for both of them. At first I thought I would just buy stockings but the choice was either to spend a lot of money on a temporary stocking or buy a really ugly cheap one.
Then I spied these pretty red boxes with glittery tops. To get the point across that they are standing in for stockings I made stocking tags with everyone's names on them.
I thought it was a nice alternative to typical stockings but in keeping with the spirit of them.
