15 Fantastic DIY Christmas Stockings
When my husband and I first got married we made stockings for our first Christmas together: one for me, one for him and one for our dog Marley. Apparently we failed to consider making extras for future offspring. Ooops.

In my search for stocking inspiration I came across quite a few cute Christmas stocking tutorials and I thought I’d share my favorites here with you. Happy crafting!

Upcycled Monogram Stockings
These are similar to my own DIY stockings this year in that I used old suiting found from a thrift store for the base – much cheaper than wool fabric from the fabric store and more environmentally conscious to boot! I love the button monograms – I may have to adapt them for my own stockings.
