Cheers To A DIY Christmas Stocking With A Wine Spout


‘Tis the season for holiday parties, gift-giving and all things merry and jolly! We pour more wine around the holidays with all the parties, dinners and let’s face it, stress. So, wine was on our minds when we crafted our next DIY Christmas gift idea.

For this DIY, we’re changing the classic line from the Twas the Night Before Christmas poem that reads, “…the stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there,” to instead say, “…the stocking were hung by the bar with care, in hopes that friends and family soon would be there.” Yes, we’re hanging our families stockings in the living room like we always do for Santa, but we’re hanging a few extra in the bar this Christmas, and giving them to friends to spread good cheer. Christmas is all about making spirits bright, right?


This DIY wine stocking makes for the perfect gift for friends, neighbors and family. Plus, it’s a really fun topic of conversation whether you’re at a party, or having a quiet night in with the girls.

Anyone and everyone can (and should) make these DIY Christmas stockings. Here’s how we made the ultimate stocking stuffer.


  • Stockings, .98 cents at Wal-Mart, or other great options at big name retailers
  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Boxed wine (we used Bota Box)
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun


Step 1: First, we upgraded the stockings with about a $3 plaid fabric investment. We didn’t use a needle and thread – just scissors and a hot glue gun. Before the plaid, there was a thick strip of white felt.


Step 2: Cut out letters for the fun quotes. We went with, Drink Up Grinches, Santa’s Helper, He Sees You When Your Drinking and Dreaming of a White Christmas. We had black letter stickers and just traced as we cut with the scissors. You can freehand the letters though, maybe even using good vinyl stickers to save yourself cutting time all together.


Step 3: With a hot glue gun, glue the letters to the stocking.


Step 4: Cut out a small hole in the front toe part of the stocking. If it’s too big, you can always hot glue the fabric tight around the wine pull tab.


Step 5: Insert the wine bag in the stocking and pull the wine tab through the hole in the toe.





Step 6: Hang and pour. Cheers!






DIY Stocking Stuffer Your Kids Will Love: Reindeer Snot


We can hardly believe we made anything that resembles or even has the word snot in it, as we dislike our kids snotty noses all winter. But, this idea was just too fun not to make. Jessica made Reindeer Snot, aka glitter slime, and shared all the details with Momtastic.

Get a tissue, wipe your nose – do whatever you have to do – just get over there to learn all about it. We used our favorite new stamp-making machine, Silhouette Mint, to make the custom stamp. We got a little stamp happy, and plan to make these holiday favors for the kids friends. Not only is the homemade slime a great DIY stocking stuffer, but also it’s a creative thing to make with the kids that they can ooh and ahh over this holiday season.
