Needle and thread
Small, gold beads
On thread that matches stocking fabric, create a string of beads in desired pattern that is long enough to go around stocking, plus extra for the swag. Knot thread on both ends.
Tack one end of thread to a side seam on the cuff. To tack, pass needle from the inside of the stocking to the front, through a bead, and then back inside again; knot in back.
To create a garland swag, tack the string of beads to the cuff at intervals (2 1/2 inches works well). Tack end to other side of cuff.
