Christmas Door Stocking

Christmas Door Stocking craft

Dress up an interior door with a beautiful Christmas stocking.

  • 1.

    This stocking will keep for years and become a family Christmas favorite! You could even make several to create a swag with them! Here are some ideas for crafting the stockings.

  • 2.

    Roll out two large handfuls of Crayola Model Magic® compound. With a craft stick, either free hand or using a large athletic sock as a tracer, cut out two sock shapes. To create a 3-D stocking, crumple a few pieces of paper towel and place in between the layers, and then press the stocking edges together. Leave the top open.

  • 3.

    Make a cuff for the top with two contrasting Model Magic squares. Press in place. Poke a hole in the top with a straw to hold the ribbon for hanging.

  • 4.

    Cut out holiday designs using cookie cutters or a craft stick. Either press the designs on the stocking or leave them separate for filling the stocking with "treats."

  • 5.

    For example, make imaginary candy canes by rolling out long pieces of white and red Model Magic. Twist together and curve the top. Shape miniature gift packages and decorate with flat Model Magic "ribbons." To make a marbleized lollipop, knead several different colors of compound together, pull and twist, roll into a ball, and then flatten. Attach a craft stick for a handle. Model Magic air dries to the touch overnight and is completely dry in 2 to 3 days.

  • 6.

    Decorate your stocking with Crayola Glitter Glue. Make dots, squiggles, lines, or shapes. Write a name on the cuff.

  • 7.

    Remove the paper towels and place your dry goodies in the stocking. Thread ribbon through the cuff for hanging. Hang indoors for a festive holiday look.
