Home-Made Stockings


Looking for a fun Holiday Craft to do? We made these cute stockings from burlap and wool. It’s a very easy craft you can do at home. You could hand stitch them however, we would recommend using a sewing machine as the burlap is hard to sew by hand. We cut out two boot patterns out of the burlap and then sewed them together using the sewing machine. We glued on the wool to the top of the stocking using hot glue. For ours, we left them blank however, we gave the stockings to our Expressive Art class and they used fabric markers and paints to decorate them. It’s a great craft you can do with your kids and the sky is the limit in terms of what you can use to decorate your stockings!
