If you’ve been on Etsy, Pinterest or TikTok then you’ve seen all of the fun and beautiful stocking tags. And even though my stockings have initials on them I decided to make tags for my stockings!
I’ll be honest, for awhile now I’ve been thinking of changing out our stockings.
We’ve had them for a long time so they’ve got a little wear and tear on them.
Plus, the red color is darker than most reds that are popular now.
I’ve been looking for some new ones, I just haven’t found anything I love.
So until then adding a little something to them might help!
First things first.
I had The Hubs cut out the tags for me.
Each tag is 3.5″ wide and 5.5″ long.
After a good sanding, I gave each tag, 2 coats of red paint on the front and the back.
Add the names!
Using white vinyl, I cut out the names on my Silhouette.
Then added them to my tags.
Now, if you don’t have a cutting machine, then just use stickers.
Or if you could always stencil or paint them on.
Paint 4 wooden beads red and 4 beads green.
Add embellishments to the jute for hanging.
Now that the tags are finished, I needed to make something to hang the tags from.
I threaded my extra large needle with a 15″ length of Jute.
Push the needle through the middle of the pom, then add both wooden beads.
Now, push the needle back through the beads and pom leaving a 2 – 3 ” loop at the top.
You will have two tails at the bottom.
Remove the needle.
Tie a knot in the top loop close to the the wooden beads and tie a know at the bottom of the pom.
Once you’ve tied the knots, then using the tails, tie the tails to the tag.
Use a double knot to ensure that the knot won’t come undone.
Cut off the remaining tails next to the knot.
Now for the fun part – just hang your tag onto your stockings!
These stocking tags were so easy and fun to make.
The best part?
If I do decided to change out mystockings, then these tags will still be a fun addition.
Until next time…
