How-to Decorate Stockings, DIY Custom Pom-Pom Stocking
Create your own festive Anthropologie inspired DIY Custom Pom Pom Stocking in just a few easy steps!
If your holiday decor is feeling a bit drab or outdated, I have the perfect project to add a punch of color and cheer to your home! This pom-pom stocking was inspired by one I saw at Anthropologie, which also came with a pretty hefty price tag. I loved the look of the stocking and the modern twist using colors other than the traditional red and green. I was on a mission to create my own version, but for a fraction of the price! Check out the full video tutorial below to see how you can create your own DIY custom pom pom stocking using playful pom-poms and fabric glue (no sewing required!).
- Canvas Stocking
- Pom-Poms (Red, Turquoise, Light Blue, Red, Yellow, Light Pink)
- Beacon FabriTac
- White Iron On Vinyl
- Cricut Maker (or Pen and Pencil)
- Cricut EasyPress (or Iron)
Step 1: Add a line of fabric glue to the stocking. Lay the navy pom pom trim on top and press down. Let the glue dry.
Step 2: Add a line of glue ¼” above the navy pom poms and add the turquoise pop pom trim. Let the glue dry.
Step 3: Add a line of glue ¼” above the turquoise pom pom and add the light blue pom pom trim. Let the glue dry.
Step 4: Flip the stocking over. Use your scissors to cut the trim so it’s flush with the stocking.
Step 5: Use a Cricut machine to cut your monogram letter. If you don’t have a Cricut, simply trace or free hand a letter on the vinyl and cut it out.
Step 6: Place the letter on the stock with the liner on top.
Step 7: Use a Cricut EasyPress to iron on the letter. If you don’t have an EasyPress, use an iron and follow the instructions on the package.
Step 8: While the liner is still warm, lightly peel it off.
Step 9: Repeat Steps 1-8 to create a version using red, pink, and yellow pom poms.
With different stocking sizes available, you can pick your perfect size whether your looking for a mini decorative stocking, a traditional sized one, or an extra large stocking to hold more holiday goodies!
