3 Ways for Kids to Bling-Out Store-Bought Christmas Stockings

Christmas is coming to town! I know most of us are busy decorating our house with Christmas decors. You don’t need to buy expensive ones since you can also create DIY decors. You can save money and at the same time you will enjoy creating this together with your kids.

Looking for an easy, no-sew Christmas stocking to make with your kids? With a little bit of creativity, you can embellish standard stockings and turn them into memories and decorations that will last a lifetime.

Handmade Christmas

Handmade Christmas stockings are a tradition many families keep during the season and they beat store-bought stockings any day of the year. Just turn on that Christmas music, brew some hot cocoa and get the kids involved.

Step 1
Santa’s Boot
Cut out various shapes from the felt. To make it look like Santa’s boot, I simply cut a black belt shape. To add a little more bling and jingle, tie two bells together on each end of a piece of embroidery thread.

Remove the backing on the sticky felt, and press it firmly down directly onto the stocking. Tie the bells onto the stocking loop, and you are finished.
