how to make the stocking garland

STEP 1: Supplies

Sock Garland Tutorial - SuppliesTo make the sock garland, gather the supplies.  All these supplies I bought were purchased at the dollar store for $1 each.  So the entire project only cost me $7.  

I purchased 5 pairs of socks for my garland.  However, you can purchase more or fewer socks to make the garland shorter or longer.

Another option would be to make a mitten garland.  The dollar store and craft store sell mini mittens for only $1.

STEP 2: Remove Packaging

Sock Garland Tutorial - Cord It goes without really having to say, but remove the tags from the socks and the clothespins from the bag.  Be careful with removing the sock tags.  You don't want to cut the socks.

Take the wrapper off the clothesline and start to unwind it.  You will only be using part of the clothesline.  The balance can be saved for another project.

STEP 3: hanging loop

Sock Garland Tutorial - KnotTo hang the sock garland, you will need a loop.  To make the loop,  tie an overhand knot at the end of the clothesline. 

STEP 4: attach Socks

Sock Garland Tutorial - MeasureLet's begin attaching the socks.  Just take a craft or regular size clothespin and attach a sock to the clothesline.

You may want to use a ruler to measure an equal distance between the socks.

STEP 5: Pinning

Sock Garland Tutorial - PinContinue pinning socks to the line.

STEP 6: Finishing

Sock Garland Tutorial - Socks HungWhen the stocking garland is the length you want, with a scissor cut the clothesline and tie another overhand knot.

The sock or stocking garland is done.  SO QUICK!  SO EASY!

Sock Garland Tutorial - FinishedHow can you decorate with the sock garland?  String the sock garland across a hutch, along a mantle, in a window or around the door.

I am really happy how simple and quick this stocking garland was to make.  And I love the way it looks in my home.

Sock Garland Tutorial - Finished Close Up Want to make it into a Christmas stocking garland event calendar?  Simple purchase enough socks, cut out numbers from felt fabric and use fabric glue or hot glue to attach them to the front of socks.

A super quick tree trimming idea is to hang Christmas socks individually on the Christmas tree.
