Silverware StockingThese silverware stockings make great party favors. Personalize each guest's stocking with their initial. Silverware Stocking

Approximate Time: About 1 hour


  • red felt
  • Christmas fabric
  • gold cording
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • glue


Cut two stocking shapes from the felt, then cut the cuff and toe shapes from the Christmas fabric.

The cuff is a long rectangle with the two long edges folded under and ironed for a clean look. Silverware Stocking

Glue the two stocking shapes together at the edges, leaving the top of the stocking open.

Fold a 1-inch by 6-inch length of felt in half and glue the ends just inside the stocking's top.

Glue the cuff and toe in place.

Use cording to form your letter. Draw your letter onto the stocking with glue, then press the cording onto it. Allow to dry completely before adding silverware.

I had some old buffalo check curtains that I had not used for a few years, could not sell them at garage sales and could not part with them. I wanted to use them for something else, but until Christmas I did not know what.

Stocking for holding silverware.
