Anthropologie Inspired DIY Stocking

I was browsing the Christmas section of Anthropologie online (so beautiful, you guys) and I saw this stocking. I really like stockings and I like when they are fun and different. I’m still thinking about one I saw, last year, with a sequin bow.

How cool is that? So, I DIY-ed it.

To start, I bought this turtleneck sweater from Goodwill. It felt a little wrong to cut an LL Bean sweater, but I got over it because…stocking.

I took a stocking that I already owned and laid it on top of the sweater, aligning the opening with the opening of the turtleneck. Then, I cut used it as a pattern to cut out my grey stocking.

I simply flipped it inside out and sewed the edges. Then, I made these little tassels out of embroidery thread. If you’re not sure how–so easy. Just wrap your thread around something, like a small book or a credit card, tie off one end of the loop and clip the other loop to make the fringe.

Finally, I used embroidery thread to attaches them to the inside of the stocking. In hindsight, I wish I would have had pom poms to add, as well, but I could always add those later if I wanted.

All in all, I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out! It probably took me half an hour and saved me a good chunk of money.

How’s your Christmas decorating going? I have something fun up my sleeve for my mantle!

Enjoying the Good Life,

Kendra
