Another day in December, another JOY holiday craft. Seriously, JOY must be my word of the season – I’ve crafted it several times. (my daughter put together a family game scavenger hunt – the first question: “how many times do you see the word JOY used in our house?” – ha!). Today’s project is all about vinyl. GLITTER vinyl. Because sparkle is awesome. A quick tutorial on how to make your own Mini Joy Stockings Banner:
So cute, right?! You’ll need:
–Mini Stockings (mine are from the Heidi Swapp line at JoAnn)
–Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl (I used gold) – I get all my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl, they’re the best!
–small dowel rod or stick
–greenery and berry embellishments
I love how simple this project is – – first up, you’ll cut your vinyl – – REMEMBER, when cutting heat transfer vinyl, you cut from the back side (so shiny side goes down on your mat) and you’ll need to mirror your image.
Then cut out and weed your vinyl. Place one letter per stocking, and press for about 30 seconds.
Peel up the carrier sheet once the vinyl has adhered to the stocking – this is always my favorite part! The big reveal to see how it came out!
And that’s all there is to it! Make all 3 stockings, slide onto a dowel rod, and then fill with greenery.
Hang and enjoy!!
