Quickly upgrade your stockings with this fun tassel stocking DIY! I like the appearance of simple stockings but I wanted to bring some pizzazz to mine this year without needing to spend additional money on purchasing new stockings. Creating a few tassels and stitching them onto my stockings did just the trick! You can easily personalize your tassel stocking using different colours and styles of yarn. I went with classic Christmas colours and added a few gold yarn to the mix for a bit of glow! You could also personalize your stockings by stitching onto the tassels in various places, since you can see I sewed the tassels onto my stockings in various ways to create more unique stockings.
The best way to create this tassel mill:
1. Begin by making some tassels. To do this you will wrap your yarn around either your fingers or a novel about a couple times (note: wrap longer will create thicker tassels). Once you are delighted with the amount of yarn you have you can proceed and choose the tassel off your fingers or publication. Cut off a small bit of yarn and tie it round the top 1/4th of the tassel. Double knot it for extra security. Cut off through the base loops of tassel.
2. Produce more tassels to fill up your stocking. You can do various lengths and thicknesses to create different appearance tassels. You may also wrap a few colours at once to create tassels with more than 1 colour.
3. After all your tassels are made you can proceed and sew them onto your own stocking. I’d suggest laying down them on top of the stocking to discover good placement for each of those tassels. Once you are happy with where your tassels will hang, then proceed and thread a needle.
4. Put your threaded needle inside your stocking and then deliver it to the surface of the stocking wherever your very first tassel is.
5. Thread your needle via the tassel and bring back the needle through the interior of the stocking. Keep doing this with each one your tassels. After all your tassels are sewed set up go right ahead and tie a knot on your ribbon and cut off any excess chain.
There you have it! A quick upgrade to a plain stocking!
