Here are the wood pieces you'll need to create one:

You'll also need craft glue, acrylic paints (red, white, black, flesh, gold)
and Plaid® Extreme Glitter™ in Gold and Red.
A multi-purpose sealer, a black permanent marker,
pink powder blush and a cotton swab,
and ribbon or cord for hanging.

Use a drill bit (1/4") or Crop-o-Dile punch to make a hole
in the top of the circle for hanging.
Base coat the front, back, and sides of the 3" circle Red.
Brush on 2 coats of Extreme Glitter™.

Paint the stocking with 2 coats of white paint.
Seal with a multi-purpose sealer.
Add details with permanent black pen.

Paint the 3/4" button plugs flesh. 
Swirl on pink powder blush with a cotton swab.
Dot the eyes black.
Seal with multi-purpose sealer.

Paint the 3/4" circles gold.
Brush on two coats of Gold Extreme Glitter™. 

Glue stocking onto ornament.
Center halo above stocking and glue in place.
Glue head to halo.
Outline details with black permanent marker.

Thread ribbon or cord through hole and knot ends.
Hang on your tree or use as a
package tie-on or gift tag!

So sweet!!!

What a lovely ornament!! I have been searching for ideas online and this one is my favorite. I will try to adapt this idea to fomis or felt, so each student of my homeroom can make one for the classroom tree. Then, they can take it home for the Christmas season! Thank you again!!

Thank you so much! I'm pleased you like this. Bea ... I think it would look great in felt! If it would help, I could send you a pattern. :)
