One delightful way to do this is by incorporating some macrame Christmas stockings into your festive decor. These Christmas macrame stockings are not just your ordinary Christmas adornments; the mini ones are incredibly soft and have a lux feel to them and the large one has become already a a cherished keepsake in my family.

Easily customizable the choices are always endless when crafting with macrame and these beauties are no exception!

You can use your favorite strings and cords, I personally made the mini ones from 3mm 100% bamboo, a super soft string that I love using as it gives a touch of luxury plus they embody the spirit of sustainable gifting. I also added a subtle shimmer that makes them utterly irresistible.

To make the large ones I’ve used a beautiful and soft 9mm natural braided string which I love using when working with larger pieces. It gives a solid look yet super soft to the touch!
