Have you finished decorating for Christmas? It’s always a work in progress at our house. I’m always adding things I find and moving items around. One of my favorite Christmas decorations is our mantle full of stockings. It’s just so pretty and classic looking. I have looked for ages for the perfect stocking hangers until this year I just decided to DIY! Our stocking holders are super simple. I grabbed some basic hangers from Target and I hot glued little nutcrackers on them. They turned out really cute.
Even if you don’t have a chimney, there’s no reason you can’t still have a beautiful stocking display. And you don’t have to spend a fortune on beautiful stocking hangers. So today I have a little inspiration for you. These DIY Christmas Stocking Hangers are the perfect way to create exactly what you need. I love the ideas that don’t require a mantle.
The first project is one of my favorites…Classic Christmas books turned into Christmas Stocking Hangers. Put these on your bookshelf with your stockings dangling down and you have a beautiful display without even needing a mantle! Our course, there are lots of mantle-friendly options below too!
