Do you hang Christmas stockings? Whether you have a mantel and you add them for that old-fashioned Christmas feel or you just use hangers to hold those Christmas socks to fill with candy and toys, buying stockings every year can get expensive. I know people who use the same stockings over and over every year and if they’re good quality then that’s great. But what happens when you lose one or you have one that wears out. Or in my case (and many other cases I assume) what about when you need to add new stockings every year for new babies or new in-laws that you add to your family? Those things can get expensive if you have to buy them every year.A better way is to just make your own stockings. And, homemade stockings are so much more appealing than anything you can buy in the store, right? Homemade everything is always a great alternative to store-bought. I do as many DIY things as I can throughout the holidays because let’s face it, I’m not made of money. I love to save money and still give my family a wonderful old-fashioned Christmas experience.
