The stockings have been hung with care by the fireplace…well, the faux fireplace, because it is Florida.
I love the idea of personalizing each family member’s stocking, without having to actually embroider the stocking. My taste in holiday decor seems to change from year to year, so I wasn’t quite ready to have a long term commitment with our stockings.
In a matter of minutes and one over indulgent trip to Michael’s, I was able to assemble these adorable wooden initial stocking tags. If you’re DIY challenged, I assure you these are 100% manageable.
DIY Wooden Initial Stocking Tags
wooden coasters/wood slices
twine/festive holiday ribbon
drill + 1/4″ drill bit
Step 1: Hot glue your letter to the wood slice. (Optional: once dry, use sand paper to rough up the edges of the letters for a more rustic look.)
Step 2: Drill a hole at the top of the slice to string your ribbon or twine through and create a knot.
Step 3: Hang your tag with your stocking!
I’m not even sure this DIY required a step by step tutorial, but nevertheless, you got one.
If you’re good with hand lettering, you could even forgo the wooden initial letters and write family members’ names on the wooden slices.
