- Time:1 hour
1To create ribbon strips: tear or cut 14 inch strip of Duck Tape, lay flat on work surface sticky side up. Fold one side of strip lengthwise, 1/3 way up; repeat for other side. You will end up with a 14 inch x 3/4 inch strip of tape. Repeat to create a total of 62 strips: 20 Cha Cha Cherry, 20 Green Clover and 22 Winking White.
2Weave strips listed above together to create 2 sets of woven fabric. Vertically lay out the 10 Cha Cha Cherry and 10 Green Clover strips alternating between colors. You may find it helpful to pin the Duck Tape to a piece of foam board at the top of each strip to hold in place while weaving. Horizontally, weave the 11 Winking White strips row by row, working over then under. Repeat for second piece of fabric.
3For stocking lining, cut or tear strips of Winking White 14 inch long to cover back of woven fabric. This will create a smooth finish to the inside of the stocking as well as bond it all together for cutting. Repeat for second piece of woven fabric.
4Cut stocking shape with non-stick scissors. Be mindful of front/back of stocking when cutting.
5To attach front and back of stocking, tear strips of white tape 6 inch long. Tear or cut down the middle. Wrap thin pieces of tape to attach the stocking pieces together. Tear smaller strips to go around rounded edges. Make sure you do not seal top of stocking closed!
6To create a stocking hanger, tear or cut 6 inch lengths of Winking White tape. Repeat folding directions in Step 1. Fold strip into loop and tape to the inside, back of the stocking with additional Winking White tape.
