Holiday Stockings Three Ways 06:39

Watch the step-by-step instructions of this project, plus two more DIY stocking projects. 


Natural fibers like burlap take glue well so the stocking will stand up well when stuffed with goodies from Santa. 

Step 1

Create Pattern and Trace

Create a pattern to get the exact shape you want. Draw a stocking shape on brown craft paper or a paper bag then cut it out. 

Fold the burlap fabric in half, pretty-side to pretty-side and place the stocking paper pattern on top. Trace the pattern onto the fabric using the fabric pen. 

Step 2

Cut Fabric

Remove the pattern and pin the fabric together. Cut out the stocking shape through both layers. 

Step 3

Glue the Two Pieces

Take the top piece of burlap off and run a bead of glue on the edge of the burlap. Place the other burlap piece on top and press down around the edge. Remember to leave the top open. Allow plenty of time for the glue to dry.  

Step 4

Turn It Right-Side Out

When it’s dry, turn the stocking right-side out and fold down the cuff. Now you can embellish it any way you want.  

Step 5


Use a piece of ribbon for the trim gluing it around the edge of the cuff. 

Step 6

Add a Loop

Create a loop to hang the stocking with a two-inch piece of ribbon. Glue it the loop onto the inside of the stocking. 

Step 7

Let Glue Cure

Allow the glue to dry and it’s ready to hang.
