Fancy designing your own Christmas stocking this year? Well it couldn't be easier with our blank stocking and just a little project pot of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!
To start with you'll need:
Step 1 :
Cut a piece of cardboard to roughly fit inside the blank stocking, and pop it inside - this will stop paint bleeding through once you've started
Step 3 :
We used Annie Sloans Tallulah stencil, this design has always reminded us of welsh blanket designs and creates a lovely Christmas feel when using Emperors Silk Chalk Paint!
If using a stencil brush, then add some Chalk Paint to the brush, hold the stencil down firmly (or stick down with masking tape if you prefer), and do a downwards tapping motion over the stencil. Avoid using lots of paint as it might make the design bleed.
Step 4 :
Ideally let the Chalk Paint dry before lining the stencil up again and repeating the design (you could use a hairdrier to speed this up)
Step 5 :
Once you've done the design all over, let the stocking dry and repeat on the other side. Don't be too pedantic with it - the idea is for it to look handmade - enjoy it!
Thanks to the American magazine, Romatic Homes for the inspiration!
