felt letter cut-outs, craft scissors, different coloured felt, stockings from the Reject Shop and Spotlight, photo ledge from Ikea, the finished product!
I have always wanted to hang a row of stockings in my house but never had a fireplace or mantelpiece to do so. So this year hubby got his handyman on and put up some photo shelves that we can use to display all sorts of things including our personalized Christmas stockings!
Easy DIY Personalized Christmas Stockings
You will need:
– a pair of quality craft scissors
– a pen or chalk
– double-sided tape
– plain Christmas stockings (from the Reject Shop or Spotlight)
– felt in the colour of your choice
Step 1: Draw the outline of the letters on the felt with a pen or dressmaking chalk
Step 2: Use your scissors to cut out the letters
Step 3: Stick the double sided sticky tape onto the back of your felt letters. Then peel of the other side of the tape and attach them to the ready-made stockings. (I bought 3 stockings from Spotlight and cut the pom-pom’s off them so that I could use the green space for our names. I bought the last stocking from the Reject shop for our dog’s stocking. It was very plain so I also cut paw prints out of felt – I think I made them a bit too big because they look like bear paws instead of a puppy’s paws! LOL!!).
And that’s it! Easy DIY Christmas stockings!
I wanted to personalize them even further by decorating the stockings with more shapes for example a treble clef sign on my stocking, a pair of headphones for hubby’s and a little car for baby’s! But for now our names will have to do as the days seem to get busier and busier.
They are so colourful and I like how they brighten up our lounge room!
