Plain cotton stockings are normally sold at craft stores. But if you want to make your own, download this handy pattern and follow the basic instructions

Step 1

Prep Stocking

Insert tin foil into the middle of your stocking. This will prevent the glue from bleeding through to the other side of the stocking.  

Step 2

Gather Materials

Open up a bag of pompoms and get your fabric glue ready.

Step 3

Work in Sections

Apply a generous amount of fabric glue to one small area of the stocking. Start placing the pompoms on the glue, covering up the entire surface. 

Step 4

Cover the Whole Thing

Continue placing pompoms until you have all of the glue covered. Repeat this process until you have covered the entire front of the stocking.

Step 5

Let Glue Dry

Allow the stocking to fully dry. Due to the amount of glue used, you will probably need at least 24 hours. 

Step 6


An alternative to filling up the whole stocking is creating a monogram or single intial. Simply apply the glue in the shape of your initial and place pompoms accordingly.
