Bless grandmothers and their creativity for turning something into a new thing.
One particular grandma is winning Christmas because she made homemade stockings this year on a fantastic budget. For those of you who like to DIY a lot of things for Christmas and add a bit of Disney flair, tune in. A UK grandma got the brilliant idea of using cheap Disney totes and turning them into magical Christmas stockings for her grandchildren.
Each tote cost only £1 each from the Poundshop, and features iconic characters such as Cinderella, Ariel, Tinkerbell, and Rapunzel. She further added festive and glittery sequins to make them holiday specific.
Grandma posted her creations on social media, along with the caption, “Made these for my grandkids. Tote bags from Poundshop.”
Her post received a lot of positive feedback and comments, with many even asking grandma if she could make stockings for other people’s children too.
One mother even wrote, “You clever thing! They’re amazing! Can you make one for me?”
So, if you are looking to upcycle a tote bag of yours, why not consider turning it into a stocking for next Christmas, or turn it into a new fashionable item? The options are endless!
