Let’s make an upcycled denim stocking!

Every year it seems like we add another stocking to the mix.  Whether it’s a new pet, a boyfriend, a visiting relative or a friend; everyone gets a stocking to be filled in our home.  This upcycled denim stocking is so fun to make because it uses jeans that in most cases have been greatly loved to the point of worn out.  This post is sponsored by Beacon Adhesives but the ideas and opinions are my own.

Upcycled Denim Stocking DIY for Beginning Crafters

What Will You Need?

To make the stocking you will need the following supplies and materials:

  • Beacon Fabri-Tac
  • Beacon Gem-Tac
  • Denim Jeans
  • Ribbon
  • Kunin Felt
  • Gems
  • Scissors
  • Large Paper to Draw Pattern
  • Marker or Pen

Directions to Make an Upcycled Denim Stocking

Start by drawing a pattern that will fit the leg of the pair of jeans being used.  Cut out a front and a back.  It is fun to get the pocket from the jeans if if it works.

Add a thick line of Fabri-Tac around the edge of the stocking, leaving the top without any glue.  Put the two pieces together and let dry.

Fold a piece of ribbon to create a loop and glue it inside the stocking opening.

Cut designs from felt and glue them to the stocking.  Do the same for pieces of ribbon.


Add gems with Gem-Tac to embellish the upcycled denim stocking a bit more.

Once the entire stocking has dry pieces, hang it up and fill it.  Until Christmas Eve, it is fun to fill with greenery!

While you have your supplies out and ready, go ahead and make this darling project too!  I shared it last year and my friends are asking if we can get together and make it again!  It uses the sames supply list so go for it!
