  • Step 1. Cutting out your stocking

    The first step is cutting out your stocking shape. Using your scissors, cut out the stocking stencil provided, fold your felt sheet in half along the long side and trace your stocking shape onto the felt. Then, while your felt is still folded, cut the stocking shape out.

  • Step 2. Gluing your stocking

    Now we need to stick your stocking together. Open up your folded stocking and glue around the edges making sure not to glue across the top of the stocking. After you’ve done that, fold the stocking back over and press down so the glue sticks.

  • Step 3. Adding a star

    Using the template provided, trace the star onto another bright piece of felt and cut it out. Stick the star in the middle of your stocking.

  • Step 4. Making a cut

    While the glue is drying, fold the top of your stocking over about one cm and make a little cut on the fold. This will be used later.

  • Step 5. Decorating your stocking

    Now it’s time to decorate! Using some craft glue, put some dots around your stocking and stick down some rhinestones, pom poms or any other decorations you like. Make it nice and bright!

  • Step 6. Adding the hanger

    The final step is to attach a hanger. Using a pipe cleaner, thread one end through the hole we made earlier and then twist the two ends together to make a loop.

  • Step 7. Finished Product

    And there you go, a bright and colourful stocking to hang up at Christmas time and fill with some goodies!
