Christmas is coming and I like making my granddaughters little dolls for the occasion. Here's what I did:
In Photoshop Elements, I layered a picture of each of my granddaughters beneath a wreath shape and printed it to size on enhanced matte photo paper. That sheet was stapled to another sheet of the same paper making a "sandwich."
A 3x1 inch piece of cardboard was glued in between these sheets and the entire shape cut out. The wreath is embellished with white Uni-ball ink pen and gold Scribble paint; a bit of gold paint was added to the cardboard.
A hole was punched into the cardboard just below the wreath. The cardboard was placed into the sock and using a large eyed needle and embroidery floss, a button was attached to the back of the sock (sewing through the hole), brought through the front and then again through to the back and tied in a square knot. A small fabric rose was then glued on the front
A hole was punched into the top of the wreath and gold cording inserted as a hanging tie - voila - a Christmas stocking doll ornament! Easy as pie and dare I say it - cute! (Ordinarily I hate the "c" word.)
