Chalkboard tagged stockings

It's looking a lot like Christmas here at the Isrel home! I finally have all of my decorations out. Well, the ones I'm using this year anyway. Most of our Christmas decor is a natural/ traditional look but I use the play room to have a little fun. This is the room where I use colored lights, bright tree, and happens to be the only fireplace in the house so also where we "hang" our stockings.

This year we needed to add a couple of additions to our family and the old stockings were looking a little dingy so I found these at Old Navy on sale for $1 and couldn't resist! Yes, ONE dollar. These are a little unconventional compared to my usual style but I thought they were fun and went with it.

I wanted to hang wooden letters for each persons stocking but had a hard time finding just the right thing when I was stuck with an idea! Chalkboard paint on wood rectangles! What else? I should just head straight to chalkboard paint any project I do.

I trimmed each stocking with ribbon and trim remnants I had. Then I mod podged the back of the wood piece with scrapbook paper, painted the front with the chalkboard paint and glued jute to the back to tie on the stockings.
I think they turned out pretty cute and are fun too!
