4 Creative Ways to Hang Your Christmas Stockings (No Mantle Required!)
“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…”
We all know it. Stockings are a Christmas tradition, but what if you don’t have a fireplace and chimney to hang them by? We have four creative ideas for you – no mantle required.
#1 – Staircase Railing
Hanging your stockings on your staircase railing is a great alternative to a mantle. Add some garland and other decorations and you have a festive display – one Santa will surely see when he comes on Christmas Eve!
#2 – Curtain Rod
Hanging your stocking with ribbon to a curtain rod is a unique take on the placement of your stockings. Varying the length of the ribbon will give your display a whimsical effect, while the light from the window will show them off nicely.
#3 – Rustic Ladder
Especially if your home is shabby-chic, an old wooden ladder is the perfect way to add rustic feel to your Christmas stocking display. Hang your stockings on various rungs of the ladder – no need to be exact in your placement.
#4 – Simple Coat Rack
A coat rack can easily turn into a stocking display. Use your imagination, too – it doesn’t have to be a tall and skinny coat stand. You can also add temporary hooks to your wall to hang your stockings on.
All four of these ideas are saved to our Pinterest – get inspired and finish your stocking displays before Santa comes to fill them!
