Wrapping Paper Stockings

This is something my sister and I used to do as kids.


  • Christmas wrapping paper
  • scissors
  • glue, tape, or staples (which ever you prefer)
  • Ad
  • batting or cotton balls
  • small lightweight gifts for inside


It's really quite simple to make.

Cut out a stocking pattern from the wrapping paper, so that you have both sides. Glue, staple or tape JUST the edges of the stocking but leaving the top open (you'll need to be able to put gifts in there, remember?) If gluing, be sure to let the glue dry before going on to the next step. Next, glue the cotton balls or batting around the top, stockings have to have that fluffy top! After it's all dried and completed, fill it gently with little gifts (pencils, pens, book marks, erasers, candy, ornaments - depending on the size of the stocking). Get creative but be sure that the stocking won't rip.

Since the stocking won't be hung up anywhere and you can just hand it to the person your giving it too you won't have to worry too much about weight, just be sure that what ever you place in there won't rip the paper before you give your gift.
