3 simple steps to creating your own personalized Christmas stockings

If you want matching stockings but still want to know who’s stocking is who’s, adding a hanging letter does the trick. They’re quick and easy to make, and you can easily make new or swap them around depending on who comes to visit at Christmas.

You’ll need:

  • MDF or wooden letters
  • Spray paint (I bought gold and a gold sparkle)
  • String or twine
  • A drill

I bought the spray paint and MDF letters from Michaels, but you can buy these from any good craft store.

Step 1: Spray the MDF letters with gold spray paint and gold sparkle spray paint if you want extra sparkle. You can spray them any color you like; red, white or silver would also look great.

Step 2: Next you need to drill the holes. Drill them all in the top left corner so they all hang the same way.

Step 3: Add the string. I chose to use a natural jute string to tie in with my rustic theme. But you could use any ribbon or string you like.

Then all you need to do is tie a knot in the string and hang them on top of each stocking.
