DIY Mudcloth Stockings

I love indigo African mudcloth and I think it's a fantastic compliment to the boho aesthetic. It's become my favorite fabric material for table runners, pencil pouches and now stockings. I love that I've been able to find a way to work this textile into my holiday decorating. These mud cloth stockings look really cool on the fireplace!



We keep our stockings hung on the bedroom doors with wreath hangers for a first glimpse of morning surprise on Christmas morning. Stockings can get heavy and I don't trust stocking hanger hooks to hold them up once they've been filled.

So the ones I've created are purely for the look of stockings hung on a fireplace. But with a few adjustments- swapping hot glue for needle and thread and skipping the polyfill- they're perfect to stuff with gifts, too!

I like using a material like mud cloth as an unexpected alternative to what we traditionally see during holidays because I find it more interesting.

    I love them. They fit perfectly with your too good to be true styled mantle. I'm obsessed with the mirror. I'm about to try making those fringe ornaments . :)

    Thank you Jessica! The trim is probably the best part!

    If I were to try to make REAL functioning stockings, it would never happen. But I can hot glue some stuff together and fake it!
