Christmas stockings can actually cost a lot of money especially when it comes to buying them from a store. However, if you are looking for Christmas stockings, why don’t you make them? You can make some amazing DIY Christmas stockings from home and you are not going to have to spend a great deal of money or time either!
So, how can you make DIY Christmas stockings? Well, you don’t need to do a lot and you don’t need a lot of skills either. You don’t need to know how to sew and even if it’s faster to use a sewing machine, you don’t need to if you don’t want.
The first thing you want to do is to choose the right material for your stocking. You need to think about whether you want to go for a classic design or a gothic, pirate themed. Though, there are a lot of different options to consider so just think about what you’re looking to choose.
You can easily take an old cushion cover to make your DIY Christmas stockings – though just make sure the covers aren’t too thin that it will rip when your put presents in. If you’re looking for a classic red design then choose fabric that is red and felt.
Next, you will need to cut out your stocking shape. This is very easy to do and you should actually draw out the shape so that you can cut your stocking very easily. Be careful though when you’re cutting out the stocking shape. If you’re using a thicker material such as a cushion or bed cover then you won’t need to do any sewing.
You can however also choose some lining for your DIY Christmas stockings. You can easily pick out some lovely felt lining for the stocking in order to reinforce it so that it doesn’t easily rip. You will want to glue the fabric into place or sew it; probably gluing it with a glue gun is much better.
When it comes to decorating it you can easily add velvet ribbons as a nice trim, or fake fur, some lovely felt stickers or even sew little patch works on there. Sticking the stocking up is easy after that.
What is more, once you’ve made your own DIY Christmas Stockings, you will then be able to fill the stockings with presents. You can make them as large or as small as you want and you can fill them with beautiful and special presents for your family. You can really have so much fun when it comes to making your own DIY Christmas stockings so enjoy and love Christmas day!
