Needlepoint Christmas Stocking Kits: Everything You Need in One Package!

You can easily make needlepoint Christmas stockings... and personalize them, too!

Needlepoint Christmas stockings can make your holidays more warm and cozy. Make your own with a stocking needlepoint kit, and hang it on a fireplace mantel, with the fire blazing cheerily and a Christmas tree twinkling in the corner.

Make one for yourself or as a special gift for a child. A little boy or girl will treasure the stocking that Grandma made just for them, especially with their name on the stocking.

People love kits because everything is included. Needlepoint stocking kits are easy to work and everything you need is included. Most kits consist of canvas, thread, felt and a needle. Many of these stocking kits have lush velvet backings and a place for you to add a name at the top of the stocking - maybe a son or daughter, or a grandson or granddaughter.

Besides needlework stocking kits, there are gorgeous counted cross stitch stocking kits, ready to work and including everything you need.

Every member of your family can have their own Christmas stocking which will be extra-special because you made the stockings just for them. Even your family pet can have their own Christmas stocking.

There are a variety of stocking kit designs:

  • Snowman
  • Penguins
  • Santa
  • Holy Family
  • Village Sleigh Ride
  • Polar Bears

Fill your needlepoint Christmas stockings with candy, small toys and special Christmas gifts for the special people and pets in your life. And don't hang your beautiful handmade Christmas stockings with tape or a nail. Hang them from Christmas stocking holders that are available in many styles from cute to elegant. You can find stocking holders for the mantel in online stores or in your local Target and such.

She shows you everything that comes in these kits and also gives you helpful tips!

Needlepoint works faster than cross-stitch because you're only using the Continental Stitch and usually in just one direction.

She shows you exactly what is in this kit. It comes with a painted canvas that you match up with a chart to use as a guide to see what colors go where. This stocking is done with floss and wool. (A lot of kits will use just wool.) Everything is sorted for you on cards.

She doesn't use a hoop, but merely holds small sections very taut, and she explains why.

I am looking for a christmas stocking that has only squares of different stitch patterns to be done in one or two shades of white, so ti will have depth with a contempory look.

@anonymous: That sounds lovely. I haven't seen anything like that, but perhaps you could get the Holiday Redwork Crewel Embroidery Stocking and use different shades of white floss instead of the red floss that is in the kit. You would then have a white-on-white stocking.

Lots of great ideas and I believe in having Christmas Stockings for kids and also stocking holders are a great idea, you can get so many nice ones. My only real complaint is that the stockings are generally only 21" I think someone needs to get cracking on making bigger ones. I know that Amazon has larger ones but they are to large. What I do for my Grand kids for Christmas is buy 5 items each costing around $20 each, so that they get a little bit of everything, I like to give it in a stocking instead of wrapping it because I think that makes it look like Santa left it but like I said most stockings are to small. Like I said these are great ideas and this year I am going to make my own so that it is the right size.

I wish I'd been more prepared and made one of these for my daughter. It'll have to wait until next year now.
