This year I decided I wanted a different look with our Christmas stockings but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. Buying 5 really cute stockings can get expensive and I would rather spend that money on something important like a new purse from TJ Maxx. In all honesty, our family had decided to donate as much as possible this Christmas season so every time I saw the dollar signs associated with new stockings I saw all of the dollar signs that needed to be going to our Giving Fund.
I had seen a lot of really cute ideas on Pinterest but by the time I began to think about stockings I had run out of energy and motivation to start yet another Christmas project! I kicked it into Cheap Mama gear and decided to do it cheap and ready made.
The stockings this year cost a little less than $3 a piece which means I saved a tremendous amount of money and if I feel like changing them again next year I won't feel guilty about my constantly changing tastes.
Stocking: $1 from Dollar Tree
Wooden glitter letter: $1 from Michael's
Giraffe ribbon: $3 for about 5 feet
Happy 2012 Cheap Mamas!
