Stocking Place Cards with Wood and Vinyl

Guys--I am almost completely done with school for this semester! I'm pretty excited, and I'm still trying to get a couple of Christmas ideas finished up. Like these stocking place markers for our Christmas table. I was sent some Expressions Vinyl to get my creative juices flowing, and I decided to use the beautiful red holographic vinyl and white flocked vinyl.

Over at the Expressions Vinyl Facebook Page they are having a rock your stockings contest! People can upload a picture of a stocking they fancied up using vinyl! And they asked some of their favorite bloggers to get the ball rolling with some fun ideas! (You can enter to win a gift card--but I also have a gift card for $100 to Expressions Vinyl at the bottom of this post! )

rock your stockings

To make these stocking blocks, cut a 1 x 4 into 4 inch pieces and paint black. Spread a bit of Vaseline on the edges when the paint is dry and add a coat of white paint. 

Cut squares of burlap to be a little smaller than than the wood. Cut stocking shapes from the iron-on vinyl, along with names (remember to mirror the image!)

Gently sand the edges of the block to remove the white paint where the Vaseline was and glue the burlap down. 

Here are 18 fun stocking ideas that all have Heat transfer vinyl on them!
