Step 2: Trim off the white border of the letter (leaving only black), and trace that onto your main color felt. Cut out the color felt letter.

Step 3: Trace and cut out two background stripes and two color stripes for the top of the stocking, and two background color toes for your stocking. Like you would see on an old school tube sock!

Step 4: Place peel-n’-stick hem tape on the back of the color accents and stick them onto the background letters so that the background felt borders the color felt.

Step 6: Optional step; use metallic puff paint along the border of the background felt and the color felt to give your letters and stripes an extra pop!
