Step 1: Download and Print the Free Stocking Template
Download the Free Stocking Template. You will be stapling the printed PDF to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Paper Stocking Shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need. You can choose to make a large paper stocking or smaller ones.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know that you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
Step 3: How to Assemble this Kids Christmas Craft
I recommend having a finished stocking so the children can see what the final version will look like.
- Glue the toe onto the paper stocking. It’s the larger piece – Make sure you put the glue on the correct side.
- Glue the heel onto the paper stocking. It’s the smaller piece – Make sure you put the glue on the correct side.
- Glue the top onto the Christmas stocking. You can even add cotton balls if you like.
- Finally, decorate your stocking with hearts, stars, and dots. Draw your name and add stickers if you like.
- Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
