Ho ho ho the time is nearly here! We love Christmas and we especially love Christmas crafting. Whether it's making our own air dry clay Christmas decorations or hooking up crochet Christmas decorations, there's nothing better than sitting down in front of an open fire and getting festive through craft. Christmas stockings are an integral part of Christmas and they can be passed down from generation to generation getting more special with age.


Although it's easy to make your own Christmas stocking sometimes it's nice to buy a Christmas stocking kit and rest easy knowing everything you need is included. Christmas stocking kits also make a great festive project for crafting circles or even as school holiday entertainment for kids (head to our Christmas crafts for kids for more easy projects).

There's a huge range of Christmas stocking kits on the market that range from complete beginner to more complex. We've gathered some of our favourite Christmas stocking kits for you to browse and pick the perfect one for you! There's everything from mini crochet Christmas stocking kits to elaborate beaded embroidery kits so no matter your craft, there's a stocking kit for you. But remember these Christmas stocking kits sell out fast and there's normally only a limited number available so we'd recommend buying yours in advance so it has time to arrive.

We're all about the Christmas trends so we will also be updating this article regularly with new Christmas stocking kits. Keep it bookmarked!
