Now that the weather is colder and Halloween has come and gone, we’ll fully admit that our minds have gone straight to Christmas! That’s why we’re already on the lookout for super fun Christmas crafts we can do between now and the big day, since getting creative for the season is part of how we celebrate the festivities. This year, we’ve decided that our whole family’s stockings could use replacing and, since we’d much rather make them than buy them, we’ve been scouring the Internet in search of inspiration.
Are you feeling just as interested as we are, if not more, in the idea of making your own DIY Christmas stockings? Check out these 15 fantastic ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search!
1. DIY pastel, pom poms, and late stockings
Do you adore the idea of making a Christmas stocking but you’re also the kind of person who doesn’t feel the need to stick to traditional Christmas colour schemes in your holiday decor? Well, instead of working exclusively with green and red, perhaps you’d get along a little better with this lovely pastel coloured stocking outlined step by simple step on One O!
2. Branch slice and wood bead Christmas stocking
Perhaps you’ve actually got some Christmas stockings you don’t mind using again this year but you’re still convinced you’d enjoy them a little more if you at least change some aspect of them up a little? Well, if slightly rustic and wooden details are what will suit your space best, then we think you simply must take a look at the way Our Crafty Mom made these little monogram trinket embellishments for each family member out of a branch slice and some wooden beads.
3. Lined Christmas stocking with a knit cuff and trinket with pom poms and bells
Are you totally interested in adding some kind of cute trinket to your stockings because you love how whimsical they look but you’d actually prefer to make the stocking itself from scratch as well? Then we’d be willing to bet that you might get along a little better with something like this lined DIY stocking with a knit fabric cuff and colourful yarn pom pom embellishment. Lovely Indeed has all the details you’ll need to make your own!
