Jack Frost’s Christmas stocking
The Christmas stocking is one of the most endearing symbols of Christmas.
This year I used wire, fishing line (mono-filament) and Phalaenopsis orchid roots to make a messy lace Christmas stocking.
I dressed the stocking with frost green Cymbidium orchids
and the tiniest ice pellet beads to add sparkle on the orchid roots.
Beautiful diamond cut crystal stocking stuffers spill out of the stocking.
I call this “lace” because I use pins to guide the wire sections together- almost like you do when making lace.
