I love a good Christmas stocking. Every year I want to pick out a new one because there is always such beautiful stockings out there! However they can get pricey and I really don’t need new ones every year! I have loved seeing all of the new colorful options out there available with pom poms, tassels and monograms oh my! I was wandering around Five Below a couple of weeks ago for stocking stuffers and found a big display of stockings from cute plaid with faux fur trim, mermaid sequins, traditional red and faux fur. They also had a big display of Christmas ornaments for $1! Including gold, silver, and red balloon letter ornaments. Immediately the wheels started turning and I knew I could make an easy diy tassel christmas stocking for $10 or less!
The stockings were $4, the balloon letter ornament was $1 and I already had yarn at home for the tassels. If you don’t have the yarn then you can easily pick some up for around $3 at your local craft store. I like using this tassel maker to make sure they all came out the same size, but honestly you can do the same thing wrapping the yarn around a piece of cardboard, which is what I use to do.
I did one version where I went the entire length of the stocking with tassels and then with the second version I just used two in the corner.
For the addition of the balloon initial I just slide it onto the loop where you hang the stocking. This way it can always be removed and used on the tree.
Here they are without the balloon initial addition.
