How thrifty is this? Using old sweaters and flannel shirts to make stockings. When I originally saw this image on Pinterest, I was instantly sold on the recycled, hand made holiday aesthetic. But being the purger that I am, I didn’t have any old sweaters or flannel shirts sitting around in storage. Several trips to Goodwill later, I was able to successfully stock up on a pile of cable knit. The problem? It’s still in a pile. I never got around to the project. Sigh.
But thanks to my friendly neighborhood Target, I got off the hook. So much for the “recycled” aspect. But it still looks “homemade holiday”, especially mixed with our unfinished staircase. ;)
The stockings were around $12 a piece. The monograms add a personal touch, and each letter is on sale for $2.50 in the ornament section… thrifty!
I simply tied the pompom strings around the ornament string.
If you ever get around to the recycled stocking project, I have some old sweaters you can use. :)
