How to Make a Christmas Stocking

Dec 01, 2015

We all love presents under the tree, but sometimes the most exciting part of Christmas morning is what's in your stocking! Help Santa out by making your own Christmas stocking.

OK, this might not be everyone’s Christmas morning, but whatever your family tradition may be, stockings can make great Christmas decorations or even great gifts for others. Hang them above the fireplace, off the heater, on the wall, doesn’t matter. Fill them with goodies on Christmas morning, stuff them with Candy Canes all season long or just enjoy the fun of making them.


  • Green, Red and/or white Felt
  • Fabric Glue
  • Accessories: buttons, ribbon, glitter whatever you’d like
  • Needle and red, green or white yarn

  1. Measure and cut the felt into two mirror sides of your stocking. The size depends on you or whom the stocking is meant for.
  2. Using the fabric glue, decorate the stocking with buttons, ribbon, glitter, felt shapes. Think about using snowflakes, hearts, snowmen, candy canes… get creative! Remember, depending on how you hang the stocking you will only see one side of it.
  3. Sew the two sides of the stocking together with the needle and yarn. Use a running stitch, the traditional stitch, where the yarn goes up through both pieces of fabric and back down through both pieces of fabric. Leave the top of the stocking open so you can stuff your goodies in. (You can always use the fabric glue to put together the stocking, but the stitching will be stronger.)
  4. Don’t forget to glue or sew on a loop in the upper cuff of the stocking so you can hang it!
  5. Happy stuffing!

If I could wish Aastha a happy birthday in a paragraph, it would be awesome. But, she's such an awesome friend that, it would be a sin to just confine it to a paragraph. And I'm not writing this because I'm too lazy to type LOL. Happy Birthday Aastha. :D
