Taking a simple stocking from plain to personality is easy with Joy embroidered letters…
I picked up a simple linen stocking at my local craft store.
It was nice enough, but it needed some personality.
I decided to embellish the stocking with Joy iron-on letters, ribbons and trim.
Here’s what I used on my stocking: (*amazon affiliate link)
- Joy Iron Embroidered Letters*
- Ribbon, Trim and Twine
- Silver Snowflake Pin*
- Beacon 3 in 1 Craft Glue*
- Pine Craft Stems*
- Jingle Bell
- Depending on the fabric and lining content of your stocking, you can either iron on the letters or glue them onto the stocking with craft glue.
- Make a simple bow by folding the ribbon over and tying the center tight with the twine.
- Add a jingle bell and a small piece of pine craft stem to the center of the bow and tie again with the twine.
- Add button to both ends of the twine and tie to the center of the bow.
- Trim the ends of the bow.
- I switched out the plain wood button on the center of the button for one that better fits my style.
- Glue trim and bow onto the front of the stocking with craft glue.
- Embellish with a Christmas pin.
- Add presents or greenery and berries to the inside of the stocking.
You could hang that stocking from the mantel or….
Doesn’t it make a great addition in the center of my Christmas Wreath.
