Stylish Christmas Stockings You Can Make

These adorable DIY stockings are easier than you'd think, and they're easy on the wallet.

If you’re anything like me and you’ve been to the stores shopping for basic holiday gear, you’ve probably noticed that holiday pricing doesn’t exactly put you in the Christmas spirit. By the time you’ve bought enough stockings for the whole family, there’s no more money left for the stocking stuffers. Lucky for you, you’ve got a passion for creating. And we’re here to help you make Christmas stockings that are just as (I think more!) stylish as store-bought stockings with a price tag anyone can handle.
