Stockings decoration on food storage container lids for pot lucks and cookie exchanges

Last week I shared my wreath Festive Pot Luck Food Storage Containers wreath lid decoration that was featured in Jo-Ann national holiday advertising catalog. It’s a super cute way to decorate your storage containers for cookie exchanges and pot lucks.

How to make stockings decor food storage containers for cookie exchanges and pot lucks:
Note that the provided pattern will fit a 10-1/2″ x 6-1/4″ lid area – you can increase or decrease the size on a photo copier to fit your storage lid size.

Cut out stocking pieces — base, toe, heel, and top — from assorted patterned card stock.

Here’s a tip: Trace patterns backwards on the back side of the paper. Then when you cut it out, all your pencil lines will be hidden on the back.

Using VELCRO® Adhesive Dots attach the stocking toe, heel and top.

Just peel off a dot…

Stick onto the stocking bit.

Peel the other plastic piece off of the dot.

And stick. I seriously love the VELCRO Adhesive Dots because there’s no slipping around once you stick the dot.

Repeat for all three stockings.

Using a 1″ craft paper punch, punch out three glitter red circles and three glitter green circles to make your “mantle.”

Cut one fuzzy wall-side VELCRO® Poster Hangers into four smaller squares. Repeat to make 6 small squares. Place the mantle circles face down onto your working surface. Press 1 VELCRO® Poster Hanger circle onto the back of each circle.
