Our family of 6 moved into a small 900 square foot home about 3 years ago. We don’t have a mantel. We don’t have a fireplace. What we do have are stockings that need to be hung during the Christmas season! I needed to come up with a creative way to display our 4 kids’ stockings. Whatever I came up with needed to take up very little space and not need to be stored when Christmas was over. Our storage is quite limited too.
While enjoying our front yard one day, an idea came to me. I could hang the stockings from a spare evergreen branch. I trimmed a branch from a tree on our property. Nailed it to one of our walls. Hung the stockings from it. In just a few minutes I had created a festive and functional way to display the holiday stockings. No mantle or fireplace needed!
