Stockings Hung From Everywhere But The Mantel With Care

Stockings Hung From Everywhere But The Mantel With Care

It may still be a little early to think about completely decking the halls, but nevertheless, we've rounded up a few favorite ideas for one of our favorite Christmas traditions. In our first home we found ourselves mantel-less, and began amassing inspirations for festive alternatives to the beloved Christmas hearth.

Don't fret all you mantel-less friends, there are a plethora of alternatives. You could hang them from....
the piano with weighted stocking hangers
hooks on a homemade winter tree or other wintry-themed cutout/decal
the stairs or railing
the end of the bed
a shelf or shelving unit
the window sill
a cabinet or door knob

Where else are all you hearthless people hanging your stockings this year?
