“The stockings are hung by the chimney with care…” One of the things I hate “making do” with is Christmas stocking holders. Little cup hooks and 3M command hooks are great for hanging things when you can’t see them, but whatever hangs the stockings is on full display. Make this little holiday detail as important as all the rest! Remember, all eyes go to the stockings, so show them off with stocking holders that are worthy of them! So try these DIY Christmas stocking holder projects, so that when the time comes to hang those beauties, you are all prepared!
