Yay! I finally get to share our DIY monogrammed stockings from the West Elm workshop! I made these for Mr. Lovely and myself, and I just love looking at them and knowing that they’ll be part of our holiday traditions for years to come. If you’re looking for a new stocking for a friend or family member, I have just fallen in love with the choices from West Elm. Add a little DIY monogram, and it’s just perfect.

Materials

Make Time: 1 Hour

Print out the alphabet templates on cardstock. Decide on the letters and fonts you’d like to use on your stocking. I really love the look of combining the two fonts! Cut out the letters you will use from the cardstock.

Place the letters ink side down on the felt and trace carefully around them with the ball point pen.

Cut out the letters from the felt. Be careful to cut slowly and precisely — the more precise the cut, the more clean and awesome your stocking will look!

Once the letters are cut out, arrange them on the stocking until you’re happy with the configuration. (This is the fun part!)

Spread a thin layer of E-6000 on the back of the felt letters using the cotton swab. Be careful not to use so much that it squeezes out when you lay the letter down on the stocking. Adhere the letter to the stocking. If more glue is needed, gently pull up a piece of the letter and apply more until you feel that there is a sufficient amount.

Let the letters dry thoroughly, then hang on your mantle and wait for Santa to come! Be sure to check out the workshop wrap-up post for more ideas. xoxo

  1. Oooh, these are so cute!! I saw on IG and it reminded me to check in with my local West Elm to see what events they’re doing this year! Last Christmas they had some great ones. Wish ours was doing this workshop, sounds so fun and I love the stockings!!

    1. That’s awesome! They’re really wonderful about including lots of in-store workshops in their schedule. I think it’s such a cool thing, and I love the sense of community it creates. Hope you get to a workshop soon!
