Winter Denim pocket

Cute and very simple winter craft idea.  I cut out a denim pocket from an old pair of jeans, and a hat and a mitten from an old flannel shirt. Used a small piece of white felt for the brim of the hat and the top of the mitten.  Whip stitched around the edges, and stuffed it full of pine, pine cones, and berries, or whatever else you may have laying around.   Hot glue a pom pom to the top of the hat.  Embellish with raffia, buttons, or ribbon.  Cut a small hole on both sides of the pocket to add the  wire hanger.  For the snowflake, I used a large snowflake stamp, dipped into white acrylic paint.

IDEAS for this project:
You could stick a wooden moose cutout and some pine, stencil a moose, or cabin on the front for a cute country cabin look, you could fill it with Cinnamon sticks, cloves, nutmeg, stencil a cute kitchen saying on the front, you could use iron on transfers and do some holiday ones using the free vintage images on the web, you could modpodge items onto the front of the pocket such as all red  buttons shaped into a heart for Valentine's Day, you could use acrylic paints and paint a primitive snowman on the front, you could stuff it full of primitive snowmen.  Lots of ideas for this simple project.  Please feel free to submit any ideas via my email, or on my comments page.

  1. What a cute idea. I am always looking for new ideas for ornaments. I try to give a homemade ornie every year to family and friends. Thanks for the inspiration.
