Red Christmas Stockings
Christmas Stockings with Red Base Color
Traditional red Christmas stockings never go out of style, and even the most plain ones still work great; both as a stocking for stuffing little goodies and delights in, as well as using as part of your Christmas décor.
The other part of red Christmas stockings that always work are the white snow cap or trim around the opening, which gives you the sense of fresh fallen snow on the top.
What's great about red as one of the traditional Christmas colors is how you can use it as a base to add to or create all sorts of Christmas designs signifying all aspects of the the holiday season.
Another aspect of red Christmas stockings is the material used to make them. Each one, like velvet or felt looks much different than each other, and offers a look that could fit in well with a variety of Christmas decorations in your home.
I've included several photos of red Christmas stockings below just to stir up a few ideas and possibly generate a few thoughts on what may work for you.

The following two red Christmas stockings show how different the fabric they are made of makes the stockings look. The first one below is a knit stocking, and looks fantastic.
