I love things that are homemade, and I have always wanted to have family stockings since having the boys, so this year I decided, why not make my own? They are always quite pricey in stores so this is a great alternative.
I made a little trip to hobby craft with my sister and picked up the bits I needed. They have ready made brown stockings for £1 each, so I picked up 4 of those. I then got 4 sheets of felt with stick back on. I got 2 sheets of green, 2 sheets of red, very festive! That’s basically all you need other than a pen and a pair of scissors. Less than £10 to make all 4.
So, here’s what I did, it’s super simple. I drew on each piece of felt the first initial of myself, My husband and my two boys, and then cut them out. I then peeled off the sticky backing and placed them onto the pre made stockings.
And that’s it, super simple but really cute family stockings. I’m going to join them together on string and hang them across our chimney breast.
Do you still have stockings? Their one of my favourite parts of Christmas, even more so since having a family.
Until next time
