How to make a Monogram Christmas Stocking for under $15

Its beginning to look alot like Christmas in my home. I have pretty much done everything I wanted to do except for a few decor items which I will tackle later on. But for now the major things have been completed. My mantle being one of them, when we moved into this house last year one of the first things we did after painting the walls; was paint the Fireplace. We had decided to paint it white with the mantle remaining the wood stained colour it was. Mainly to give it more character, each season I decorate my mantle I use the wood as my focal point to decorate.

This year putting together my Christmas decor was a little difficult because I normally shop for decorations for my theme at the end of the season of the previous year. Now although its a great to do that because everything is discounted I often forget what decorations I had purchased. Until I am mid way through decorating and I realize that I need to get more. My theme for this year is quite neutral compared to other years. I went with Gold, White, and Silver with accents of earthy tones like Pine and Wood.

I have been obsessed with Antlers, Deer heads and Glitter. As I am sure every woman out there decorating her tree is too. I decided that this year I wanted to make my stockings extra special by customizing them with Monogram letters for each family member. I picked up some in expensive Decorative Monogram Letters from Walmart from their Holiday Time line for just under $3 each. Of course they are completely filled with glitter so I had to pick them up.wayfair-snowflake-stocking

Since I changed my color scheme for this year I needed to pick up new stockings. Thank fully I had gift cards for Wayfair Canada  and I purchase 4 stockings at $18.99 for a pack of 2. I think that is amazing since stockings are so darn expensive these days.

 

 

It was really easy to customize my stocking and I wanted to share it with you all as an idea for this year. You can use whatever stockings you have to help cut down the costs of purchasing new ones or you can purchase new ones. Its completely up to you, I am all about re purposing old to make new which I actually did with one stocking. Anyway You can make these at home as well with only a few items needed. So get crafting!

What is your decor theme for the holidays this year? Let me know in the comments below.

Materials needed:

  • Stockings
  • Monogram letters
  • Glue Gun/ sticks
  • Flat surface

Directions:

  • Heat Glue gun, while gun is getting hot arrange stocking and letters
  • apply a generous amount of glue on the back sides of the letters
  • apply to the top centre of the stocking and apply pressure to adhere
  • hang and enjoy

    Okay, I was just telling my husband the other day that I wish our stockings had initials on them, but I didn’t have time to take them to get embroidered…well, you gave me the perfect solution! I love how simple, but classic and elegant these are!

    This is so cute!! I’ve never been big on DIY projects. I’m so horrible at them and I honestly just don’t have the patience for it haha but this looks super quick and easy to make so maybe I’ll try it out this year. Hopefully it doesn’t end up as one of those Pinterest fails lol
