Yup, I have become one of those people who does a themed Christmas each year. I am still not sure if this is a sign of greatness of madness! While I admit to having accumulated many boxes of decorations, I do try to reuse items that can be adapted to each year’s theme. At the bottom of the post, you will see links to all the past lives of my plain white stockings. This year, they are dressed up in Anthropologie-inspired bohemian pom-pom trim! I pulled this off in a morning with my good friend, Ariana from Revolving Decor.
What you’ll need:
- White felt stockings. I got mine a while back from West Elm, and they seem to carry them every year. If it’s off season, or they are sold out, I also saw white felt stockings online
- Pom-pom trim in a variety of pastel colors. I found mine on Etsy
- Felt sheets and Heat ‘n Bond to make the ornaments
- Safety pins
What to do:
- Wrap five to six strands of trim around the stocking. I used safety pins in the back to attach the trim – easy to remove for next year’s theme!
- I cut the felt ornaments out of different colors
- For the initials, I fused Heat ‘n Bond to the white felt, sketched initials in reverse on the back, and then fused them to the ornaments.
- Ariana had the idea to just tape the ornaments onto the center of the stocking!
This is an easy project, though like everything else that looks perfectly “random and casual,” it took a little longer than I thought. A good way to pass a morning with a friend and get into the spirit of the season!
I got the idea for these pom-pom trim stockings from Anthropologie, but they are no longer available there:
- Mod Metallic Kate Spade-inspired Stockings
- Retro Monogram Stockings
- Neutral (Almost) All-white Christmas Stockings
Stay tuned for more Retro Christmas fun to come!
