Personalize Your Stockings
Whether you have simple taste or a flair for the chic and classy, your stocking should express your style and add a personalized finishing touch to your holiday decor. Making your own stocking is easy. All you have to add is your personality!
What you'll need
Cut Christmas shapes like bells or holly leaves from different colored/textured fabric and paste it with fabric glue or write your name with glitter glue on your holiday stocking. You can jazz it up a bit with sequins, beads, pom poms, lace or any trim that showcases your personal style.
Think about some of your favorite things and consider how your stocking could reflect something you call your own.
Make a white stocking with a red cuff, using the instructions above. Cut a blade shape from grey felt or velvet and sew it to the bottom. Stitch a shoelace in a crisscross pattern and add bells to the end of the lace.
Substitute a tan color in place of the red on the traditional stocking, and lose the cuff. Attach felt cut outs to the front of the stocking in the shape of a sandal sole and add flip flop straps. Add a beaded ankle bracelet to complete the surfer look.
Make a white stocking without a cuff. Attach a slipper shape made out of pink felt or silk to the bottom of the foot. Stitch a pink ribbon in a crisscross pattern up the length of the stocking and tie a bow on top.
Make a shoe-shaped stocking from white fabric and attach a blue sneaker shape to the foot. Add your favorite brand's stripes if you choose, plus shoelaces to the top of the foot. Go retro and add stripes along the leg for tube socks.
Make a boot-shaped stocking with tan or brown felt. Attach a heel and toe with black or gray felt. Stitch a ring of black felt around the ankle and loop a large silver buckle through it.
