martha stewart personalized christmas stockings

Surprise Santa with these delightful Personalized Christmas Stockings from Martha Stewart! Handmade holiday décor has never been so easy – just download the simple pattern, cut, sew and stencil. Martha’s video will give you all the tips and tricks you need to DIY, so take a look!
Step 1
First, click here to view and print Martha’s stocking template; then cut out the shape. 
Step 2
Fold your canvas fabric in half, with right sides together, and trace the stocking shape. Cut out both pieces with your pinking shears.
Step 3
Pin the two canvas layers together; then sew all the way around the stocking, ¼" from the fabric’s edge. Remember to leave the top of the stocking open. Fold over the top of the stocking to create the cuff.
Step 4
Next, cover your work surface with kraft paper. Place a piece of kraft paper inside your stocking, too, since this will keep paint soaking through the top layer of fabric to the back.
Step 5
Carefully place a self-adhesive stencil on your stocking; then press down firmly to make sure all of its edges are stuck to your surface.
Step 6
Remove the original cap from your paint bottle and replace it with a bottle topper. Gently squeeze the bottle and dab it onto a paper plate (or paint palette) to start the paint flowing. Carefully pounce (dab) paint over all the stencil’s open spaces.
Step 7
Once you’ve covered all the open areas within the stencil, carefully peel the stencil away from your fabric and let the paint dry.
Step 8
Don’t stop now! Repeat Steps 5-7 to add more stenciled designs to your stocking.
