For most of us, no Christmas is complete without the tradition of hanging stockings on the mantel. We've put together some outstanding stocking styles to inspire you.
A nostalgic red wagon makes a portable presentation of animated jester stockings. Make the simple stockings from felt and embellish each one with felt shapes that fit each family member's personality. For a bit of whimsy, top each toe with a yarn pom-pom.
Felt gives you the option of creating nearly any shape of decoration. These flowers sport two-tone petals, and the stockings have a small floral "bow" decoration on the top corner.
Garnish the table edge with store-bought stockings of green and blue to which you add sparkling buttons and colored tinsel designs.
Unique designs give these felt stockings contemporary style.
These intricately patterned stockings will be the talk of the party.
