Upcycle a past-its-prime family quilt that's hidden away in a closet or trunk into charming Christmas stockings you'll be proud to display year-after-year. Get sewing with our step-by-step instructions.
Give new life to a tired quilt that's stored away in a linen closet, attic or trunk by making it into Christmas stockings for your family. These stockings will certainly become heirlooms that will be treasured for many holidays to come.
Just because you don’t have a traditional fireplace mantel to hang your stockings from doesn’t mean you can’t make them an important part of your holiday tradition. Weighted stocking hangers (like these “noel” hooks) make it easy to adapt any surface.
Make the mantel a holiday focal point of your living room by incorporating a larger accent and balancing it with smaller items of equal size. One-of-a-kind handmade stockings add a unique touch and bring a splash of color to this modern mantelscape.
No mantel, no problem! If your home doesn't have a hearth, fake it with this DIY project from Marian Parsons. Customize your homemade mantel with colorful paint and pretty knobs or hooks for stockings.
