Make one-of-a-kind stockings for your loved ones with this handmade holiday craft.


  • Stocking Template
  • Felt
  • Sewing machine
  • Scalloped scissors
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Rickrack
  • Hot glue


  1. Step 1

    Download and print Stocking Template. Trace onto 2 pieces of felt.

  2. Step 2

    Machine stitch pieces together, then cut around sewn pattern with scalloped scissors.

  3. Step 3

    Add hanging loop by hand-sewing felt strip inside top of stocking edge.

  4. Step 4

    Cut rickrack to length of 13 bumps, making sure ends point in same direction. Glue ends so they don't fray.

  5. Step 5

    Using a knotted thread, start at pointed tip and sew one stitch through each bump. Pull thread so rickrack folds in on itself. Push out tops to make floret shape.

  6. Step 6

    Whip-stitch glued ends of rickrack together in the back.

  7. Step 7

    Add pips to florets by cutting off ends of pips to about 1/4-inch length. Using tweezers, hot-glue pre-cut pips to center of florets.

  8. Step 8

    Hot glue florets onto stockings.
