DIY Stocking Idea with Martha Stewart and Cricut

DIY Stocking Idea with Martha Stewart and Cricut

Hey y’all! I’m back again with another project that I created in collaboration with Cricut, Michaels, and Martha Stewart, and I can hardly wait to share this one with you!

It’s fast, it’s affordable, and it’s so darn cute!!! I’ll give you the full “how to” for this DIY Stocking Idea below, but I hope you’ll use it as a baseline to get your creative juices flowing. The possibilities are endless here!

Obviously, most people personalize stockings to hang in their home, but think outside of the box, too! In this case, I used the stocking as gift wrap.

The holidays can be super stressful, and I thought my girlfriends might want some wine to help them cope through the craziness. I gussied up a simple stocking using my Cricut Explore Air 2 Martha Stewart Bundle and the brand new Cricut EasyPress 2 Martha Stewart Edition, tucked some chocolate and wine inside, and voila! A sanity-saver in a stocking! ;)

This would also be a great gift for neighbors, Christmas Party hostesses, your boss…heck, anyone really. The point is, don’t be afraid to add your own spin to the personalization (there are a slew of fun options in Design Space), or even the gift inside. It doesn’t have to be wine…it can be anything!

DIY Holiday Gift Tags Using the Cricut Maker

I absolutely love wrapping pretty gifts to go under the Christmas tree! If you ask my family, they may even tell you I’m a little obsessive about it. But there’s something so special about receiving a beautifully wrapped present, isn’t there? I mean, if there were a dozen gifts under the tree, and only one of them was tied up with a pretty ribbon and tag, wouldn’t you wish that the jazzed up one was for you? Exactly. Plus, the gifts under the tree are basically house decor until they get opened, so why shouldn’t they look nice? I know y’all get me. My family just doesn’t know any better. ;)

Hot Cocoa Bar - Have a Cup of Cheer!

Hot Cocoa Bar - Have a Cup of Cheer!

I am not a cold weather girl.  As soon as the temps even come close to dipping below 50 degrees, gimme cozy blankets, fires in the fireplace, and hot cocoa...lots of it!  

When I saw these sweater mugs and buffalo plaid to-go cups from Oriental Trading, I thought they'd be great for setting up a Hot Cocoa Bar that could last all through the cold weather season.   

I love the idea, cuz no matter what you've got going on, hot cocoa is always at the ready! 

If you're staying in, grab a sweater mug and cozy up.  If you're heading out, grab a cute disposable cup for the road.  Perfect, right?

DIY Christmas Milk and Cookies Tray

Santa isn't the only one who loves milk and cookies, ya know.  If ya ask me, milk and cookies should be served nightly throughout the Christmas season, and this fun DIY Christmas Milk and Cookies Tray helps you do just that!  

I scored this adorable, rustic tray at JoAnn a few months back, and have been holding onto it until I had the perfect use for it.  Well, when I was searching for something on Etsy last week, I came across this SVG file from Honeybee SVG and knew right away that it would be perfectfor the tray!

I pulled out my Cricut Maker, dug through my adhesive foil stash, and within 20 minutes, I had this tray whipped up!
