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.

Materials:

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

Instructions:

  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!

At this age you've just hit puberty and sure some of you might be more mentally matured, but you're thirteen, you're now being exposed to those kinds of things and your hormones might start kicking in and you'll maybe feel different ways to different genders and people but i really do think that thirteen is a much too young age to decide, and to "come out". I respectfully disagree. this is how I think of it. Being gay happens it's not like you wake up one day and you want to be gay. It justs happens, some people come out when there younger like around 13 ish others come out sometime later. It is a confusing subject and because it's only relitvaly new concept. I think personally people should just accept the fact because for many people it's hard for people to come out because of how people look at them. People should leave an open mind because with that at least you can help and give support to those who are struggling to figure this out. Not to take this personally everyone is entitled to their own opinions this is just an explication to hopefully make it somewhat clearer. I am not gay myself but i have many friends who are so I opinion will be different than yours which is perfectly acceptable.

It has nothing to do with their age or how mature they are.3. If its what they feel on the inside, thats never going to change with a age.4. dont use character quotes. rlly bothers me. Use ur OWN quotes or a pic or something, not a dead character from Harry Potter k?  it has everything to do witwit maturity and age. That is what we know as scients With*Science*Anyways. To the main question. Coming out is a deep decision. I'm not saying you aren't bisexual, but I'm not saying that this isn't too young. Being 13, I think you should at least wait till you are sixteen or seventeen to put a label on yourself. Remember, if you turn out to not be bisexual in the future and then tell your parents and friends, you might be laughed at or your mom saying "I told you it was a phase!"Maybe you should take a few quizzes and answer truthfully, or wait one or two more years before deciding who you are. But it's your choice.
