DIY Personalized Stocking Tags + Printable Labels

Remember that one time about 4 weeks ago when I told you all about our new addition? Stella, our once little 8 pounds of fluff, has tripled in size, has gotten to the point of drinking out of toilets, and is coming dangerously close to reaching food on our countertops. Life is glamorous at our house right now.

She’s still clumsy as ever, like her legs are too long for her body, and her favorite pastime is whipping her head around to catch one of her own floppy ears to make it a chew toy. This pup is a goofy nut case, and we already love her so much. And even though Stella is big enough to win every wrestling match now, itty bitty Lola is still the boss. 😉

So since we’re now a family of 5 (furbabies are family, you know), our old set of 4 stockings wasn’t going to work anymore… and a couple of them busted at the seams last year anyway since we go overboard with stocking stuffer excitement.

I wasn’t about to go and spend $200 on a set of stockings though. Have you seen how much personalized stockings are?!!

So I improvised…

I’ve used these leather luggage tags before for organizing our pantry cabinet, and while I was doing that whole process, I had a thought that they would be great for personalizing our plain stockings this year.

So I just cut out the clear plastic window of the tag with the knife blade, looped some twine through, and safety pinned them to the inside top of the stocking.

I used the same labels from our pantry too since I love how simple yet charming they look.

You can snag a blank stocking label set by clicking here to subscribe to get access to my full printable library. (If you’re already a subscriber, the printable should already be in your email inbox.)

I used Picmonkey to type my text onto my label using the font Parisienne.

If you’re a Picmonkey user, here are the steps to add your own names to your labels after you have downloaded the printable file to your computer:

  • Start on the Picmonkey.com home page.
  • Click the “Edit a Photo” button.
  • Click “Open New” -> “Computer” -> choose the printable file you downloaded from me.
  • Click the “Tt” button on the left side toolbar.
  • Click “Add Text” and choose your preferred font.
  • Type your name and size the text box as you wish.
  • Move the text box on top of a blank label into position.
  • Repeat for any other names.
  • To save, click “export”.
  • Print onto white cardstock, and you have antique style labels for your stockings.

If you prefer to work in Google Docs, you can use this video to help you add names to the labels.

Or if you have pretty handwriting, just wing it with a Sharpie and know that I’m very jealous of your skills. 😉

These babies are looking pretty fancy considering they cost $130 less than the personalized designer stockings, and they’re every bit as cute. Even just the stocking tags cost somewhere around $10 each usually, but ours that were 80 cents are hard to beat.

I’ve already been going overboard with scoping out fun stocking stuffers to put in them. I think I have more fun with the itty bitty treats in stockings than I do buying the big presents.

Last week, I shared some of my favorite stuffers because my Amazon cart is about to burst over here with all kinds of goodies I’m planning for Robert and Olivia to find on Christmas morning. And if Stella stops drinking out of the toilet, maybe Santa will put her back on the nice list. 😉

  1. I love these stockings! I have been looking for something new since my puffy paint is starting to crack and falling off mine. Trust me, this will be a very classy replacement! You are so talented!

  2. I love this entire idea. I do have a question though – why did you cut the plastic out of the luggage tag instead if just slipping the name tag in? I’m sure there is a very good reason.

    1. I felt like the plastic made them look less vintage and kind of cheap looking. Once I cut them out, they just looked more authentic and upscale. 😉

  3. Lauren,

    A big thank you for taking the time to create a whole post on the stockings and tags. I sure appreciate the sharing of your creativity. Merry Christmas!

  4. Love these so much! I had purchased these stockings about a month ago. After Thanksgiving I hung them with some little evergreen bits but it still seemed like they needed something, so when I saw your post I said, yes, that’s it! You dear Lauren are a decorating genius! Thank you so much for all the inspiration you provide, I truly enjoy opening your emails for your creative, timely and timeless ideas.

  5. Always love your tips and tricks! This one is pure genius. One of my absolute favs of the season. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas from Susie at The Chelsea Project
