I have very fond memories of hanging up stockings when I was little. It was always my job to do it, and our grandmother had given us knitted stockings with all of our names on them (so they were very special). Given that I had four younger brothers and thought that the way to get more stuff in your stocking was to have the biggest one, I got creative each year. I spent a lot of time stretching my knitted stocking. If you look at old pictures, you can see each year that the toe got a little longer . . . and longer . . and dangled down below the others. Hilarious!
Now that I’m older, it’s time to make my own stockings. I put together a collection of 20 DIY Christmas stockings that inspired me. You can bet that mine will be the biggest one of any that I make . . . I haven’t given up on the idea that you get more if your stocking is bigger. Take a peek at the slideshow to see the projects I found!
