1.Draw a stocking on a piece of watercolor paper. Cut it out. Trace the same shape onto another piece of watercolor paper and cut out. Cut a strip of paper for the hanger.

2.Draw designs on the stocking with a white crayon.
TIP: The harder you press your crayon into the watercolor paper the more noticeable the resist will be when watercolor is added.

3.Paint the stocking with watercolor. Watch the white crayon show through; then let it dry.

4.Now, add your name and some pom-poms for a personal touch.

5.Fold the strip of paper and glue it to the stocking as a hanger.

6.Glue the two stockings together, but leave the top edge open, to make the pouch.
TIP: ADULT: Use hot glue when attaching the stockings together for the strongest hold.
