"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Christmas Tree Stocking

By: Inspired at Home

With a few pieces of felt and scrap holiday fabric, you can create a Christmas tree shaped stocking for your fireplace mantel, banister or anywhere else you would like to hang a pretty Christmas tree. Follow this project from Heidi Borchers of Inspired at Home.

Christmas Tree Stocking




  • Felt – 2 (16” x 20”) pieces green, 1 (4” x 6”) piece brown, 1 (6”) square off-white
  • Scissors
  • Pinking shears
  • Green thread
  • Iron-on fusible web
  • Iron
  • Fabric scraps – assorted holiday prints
  • Aleene’s® Jewel-It™ Glue
  • 33” length ¾” wide off-white lace trim
  • Buttons – assorted
  • 5 (8”) lengths 1/8” wide red satin ribbon
  • Dimensional paint - red
  • Patterns



To cut 1 large tree from each piece of green felt draw triangle 19” tall x 14-1/2” wide at base on 1 piece of felt. Referring to diagram, draw 1 trunk at base of tree. With edges aligned and pattern side up, stack green felt pieces. With pinking shears, cut 2 trees, cutting just inside marked line through both felt layers. With edges aligned and beginning and ending 9” from top of tree, machine-stitch trees together around sides and bottom, using 3/8” seam allowance.

Transfer patterns to felt and cut 1 pot from brown and 1 star from off-white. Fuse web onto wrong side of 1 print fabric scrap. Transfer pattern to fused scrap and cut 1 star, cutting ¼” inside marked line. Center and fuse print star onto off-white felt star. Cut 1 (3/4” long) vertical slit in star to create buttonhole for button. Cut 1 small triangle from remaining green felt and glue to top back of tree for stability. Let dry. Stitching through all layers and placing button 1-1/4” from tree tip, stitch 1 button at top of tree. Slip star over button and glue star to tree. Let dry.

To decorate tree, glue lace trim onto tree for garland effect. (See photo). Let dry. With inking shears, cut several small squares and rectangles from assorted print fabric scraps. Tie each ribbon length into bow. Glue fabric pieces, buttons, and bows to tree as desired. Let dry. With pinking shears, cut 1 (1-1/2” x 14”) strip and 1 (1-1/2” x 10”) strip from 1 print fabric scrap. Tie 14” strip in bow. Glue bow to top of pot. Let dry. For hanger, fold 10” strip in half to form loop. Glue ends to top back of tree. Let dry. Write message and name on lace trim with dimensional paint. Let dry.

What a cute idea, to have a Christmas tree instead of a stocking to hang from a mantel or any ledge. Nice to have the simple pattern offered in the instructions. Might be interesting to alternate a Christmas tree with a Christmas stocking instead of just all stockings to hang from the mantel.
