Personalize your Christmas Stocking with Joy

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)

Directions:

  • 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.

You can find Joy® iron-on, embroidered letters and number sheets in a variety of sizes, colors, and fonts at your local craft stores.
