Unique Handmade Christmas Stockings
No mantel? No sewing skills? No problem! These unique handmade Christmas stockings will inspire you to think outside the sock.
Sack It to Me
Instead of a traditional Christmas stocking, try making these fun, vintage grain sack inspired "stocking sacks" from Marian Parsons. With draw strings and custom painting, these sacks are cute and functional. Use them in lieu of stockings, as a stand-in for wrapping paper or as a personalized hostess or teacher gift.
Pails by Comparison
Give your holiday decorations a playful twist by swapping out traditional Christmas stockings for metal pails painted with fun, bright colors. Who said stockings had to be made of fabric anyway?
Wood You Try This?
These handmade plywood stockings from blogger Erin Loechner reflect a Scandinavian aesthetic and the wood subtly warms up the white mantel. Best of all? They're magnetic, so they can be removed and filled with ease.
Give It the Boot
HGTV fan QuincyRN had the clever idea to repurpose cowboy boots as stockings for a dose of Southwestern charm.
Hide & Chic
Give your holiday mantel a high-fashion makeover with custom leather Christmas stockings. Wouldn't these tanned beauties be so appropriate for a rustic industrial holiday?
A Better Sweater
Don't toss that old sweater. Instead, repurpose it as custom stockings for the entire family. This project requires no sewing machine or knitting needles and can easily be completed in an afternoon. (That's our Christmas gift to you!)
Burlap of Luxury
These burlap coffee sack stockings have an effortless, vintage vibe. Sprigs of greenery peeking out of the top feel fresh and also hide the treasures inside from prying eyes. Design by Holly Mathis; sewing by Michelle Fritz
