Shabby Chic/Victorian Christmas Stocking

Hi there!  I am coming to you today to share a stocking that I designed with products from the Creating With Details amazing store.  I had so much fun making this stocking as it will be a gift for a very special person in my life, my biological Mom.  She is elegant, classy, and beautiful inside and out and this project is a perfect reflection of her in my eyes. I have always loved the black and ivory combination and hope you like it too!

I started out using one of the canvas stockings carried in the store: Creating With Details Store

I added the black flatback pearl trim around the edge.  The scalloped lace was glued to the inside top of the stocking (this could also have been sewed).  The black and ivory laces were adhered to the cuff of the stocking next.  Then I fixed the applique slightly under the cuff and cut out the black flower from lace and glued it and the bling in the center of the flower.  I attached 3 snowflake pieces of bling on the toe of the stocking.  On the top of the stocking in the center of the black lace, I added a resin frame with black and white cameo.  Two large pearl embellishments were added to either side of the cameo on the black lace, as well as smaller pearls and black rhinestones in various places.  To embellish the top of the stocking where you hang it, I added pieces of ivory seam binding, black lace,ivory organza ribbon, a white tassel,  leftover pieces from the applique, a black teardrop rhinestone, 3 acrylic wheat sprays, and a black organza flower.  Here is a close up of the top:

Here is how I finished the back of the stocking:
