The first had a simple, fun, vintage and COLORFUL theme.
The second was all white and green.
I ran by Home Depot last week and picked up some Christmas tree clippings from the garden section (they give them away for free) and stacked some white frames in the back to give it a little depth. Still wasn't really feeling it...
The third hit the spot for me. It's more romantic/ antique.
I made the stockings out of rugs from Ikea. They're $3.99 per rug and got 3 peices (1 1/2 stockings) out of each. I used burlap ribbon for the top. I have to warn you though, if you decide to do this, the rug frays like crazy so either use no fray, surge the edges, or zig zag like crazy when you sew them. Or a combination of all of those just to be safe. It's a great inexpensive way to get nice thick stockings though. They had them in multiple colors and stripes as well.
