Use Good Quality Christmas Stockings
Don’t skimp on quality. Sure, if you find some good quality stockings at the dollar tree, purchase them. Just make sure they are well sewn: strong seams and nicely cut. No lopsided stockings.
These I purchased from Hobby Lobby during a half-priced event. They are excellent quality quilted plush velvet. Unfortunately, I don’t believe H.L. carries this exact one any longer. But I found one that looks exactly like it:
You could certainly use these unadorned, right! They are beautiful in the traditional red and green colors. But…..
I don’t use traditional colors in my home, so I decorate for holidays with the same bright color palette I have in my home year round.

Choose Coordinating Trims for your Christmas Stocking Update
This particular year, the family room was decked out in Christmas green and teal. So I chose to add teal trims to the stockings.
However, no red velvet was harmed in this DIY. I simply folded it down inside the stocking. After all, you never know when red and green will be my color theme of choice!
FYI: I believe I purchased the pom pom fringe from H.L. and the tassel trim from JoAnns.
Here are some great trims I’ve sources:
Glue or Sew The Trim on the Christmas Stockings
Sewing is not my love! I know it is better than gluing. The finish is much more professional, and if I were making these for someone else, I’d most definitely drag out the sewing supplies.
For me: the glue gun is perfect. Especially when I have 10,000 more projects to get completed. I always get darling ladies who comment that I could whip stitch trim right into place, and they are exactly right! I could. It’s not that difficult.
