I had this idea a few years ago. I even bought sweaters and fulled them in the wash. I would tell you that the fulled sweaters sat and waited patiently, but, indeed, they did not. They were used for all sorts of things over the years. Finally, this year, I made it happen! Each of those little stockings is wool felt, and this year we put a simple scripture and an activity in each stocking. We also added a wool felt star on a stick that we moved from one stocking to the next each day. That felt star was brilliant; it saved us from all the “how long to Christmas?” questioning. They could see exactly how much longer we had to go! I couldn’t be happier with how this turned out, and I am excited about next year when I plan on adding number charms to the ties on each stocking.
