DIY Dinkum Festive Stockings and Fireplace
Print out the Stocking Template and cut around the outlines, then use a pencil to trace around the stocking onto the scrap piece of cardboard. Carefully cut around the outline with a box cutter making sure to protect your work surface with a cutting mat or scrap cardboard.
Paint your stockings to suit your Dinkum or Dinkum Dog’s personality!
Use a white paint pen to write your special friend’s on their stocking
04Add your sparkle
Add Bio Glitter from The Glitter Tribe to your stockings for some guilt-free sparkle! Use an old paintbrush to apply the PVA glue, sprinkle over glitter and then shake off the excess.
05Trace your fireplace
Take the large box and tape up down any loose flaps. On the front of the box, draw an arched fire place with a pencil and steel ruler. We used a dinner plate to create the arc at the top.
06Cut it out
Carefully cut out the fireplace using a box cutter and a steel ruler as a guide for the straight edges.
07Paint the front
Use a white paint pen to add some brick details to the front of the fireplace, if you don’t have a paint pen, you can always use white paint for this step.
08Don't forget the mantle piece!
Tape or glue the Honeycomb Packaging to the top of the box to create a mantle piece.
09Place your stockings on the fire place
Attach the Stockings to the top of the fireplace with double-sided tape. To give them a nice shadowline, we also added some small squares of thick cardboard to back of the stockings first.
10Time to toast some marshmallows!
Add your special Dinkum Friends, ready for some festive fun!
