Super Awesome Stockings For All!

Have you been thinking about how to hang your stockings with care? Stockings are one of my favorite parts of Christmas. What could be more fun than pulling presents and treats out of a giant sock? Did Santa leave anything odd in your stocking when you were a child? A can of black olives in the toe was always a given at my house growing up (a story for another time : ).

I love displaying our stockings, but it’s not always easy to find a place for them to hang. In fact, this is the first house we’ve lived in with a working fireplace! Maybe you don’t have a fireplace or a traditional mantle — or maybe you just want to keep things fresh year after year. If you’re looking for stocking ideas and fun ways to display them, I’m ready for you! Click through the gallery below to see what I found.
