Need a new stocking for Christmas? Our DIY woodland stocking combines beautiful felt designs with heat transfer vinyl and embroidery details. As a fun afterthought, Meagan also added a pom-pom to the top of the stocking with some macrame cord.
Because of the intricate cuts and iron-on additions, we recommend using your cutting machine with our SVG file for this project. However, we have also included a PDF template if you want to cut your pieces by hand.
We’re Fawning Over This Adorable DIY
Our DIY woodland stocking features so many pretty details, including a felt doe, squirrel, and bird, two different types of flowers, and leaf sprigs. You can copy our same design or add the pieces wherever you’d like on your stocking. Meagan also chose neutral colors for a natural, woodsy look, but you can always choose to make your stocking in any color.
