Roundup: 10 Other Places to Hang Your Christmas Stockings

By: Diy maven Dec 08, 2011

Okay, so you have TONS of  Christmas stocking tutorials that you could tackle between now and Christmas, but you don't have a mantel on which to hang them. Not to worry! Santa doesn't really care where the stockings are hung. (He has an uncanny ability to find them wherever they are.) What I've heard, is that he actually LIKES to find them hanging in less prosaic places. If true, these 10 ideas will surely please him.

I love the way Jane used a branch, which she adhered to the wall with two Command cord bundlers.

Here's another branch installation from Holidash. Even though it's another branch, because of the selection of the type of branch and stockings, it has a completely different feel from the first idea.

 No scrounging around in the yard for this next one. If you have a bookcase, you're good to go.

So sweet is this peg 'o stockings.

A rustic lean-to ladder provides a perfect backdrop to handmade stockings.

If you don't happen to have a rustic ladder or you like the idea but not the 'rustic'part, here's a tutorial from HGTV for making your own lean-to.

Okay, upright pianos might be even more scarce than fireplaces, but this idea from Country Living deserved a highlight.

 christmas How To Hang Stockings Without A Mantle

Spotted this idea at Wheeler Three. Super simple; just hang them from your window locks.

This next idea will take some stealth to fill on Santa's part, but how cute for the kiddo to wake up to a stocking hung on their bedpost! Less stealthy would be to hang them on the outside bedroom door knobs.

Of course said kiddos will probably wake you up at the crack of dawn anyway, so how about hanging them from the foot of your bed?

We just moved into a new townhouse with no fireplace and I've been freaking out a bit (13 days until Christmas) regarding Stockings. Midway through reading this I jumped up off of the couch and hung our four stockings on our four window locks right next to the tree. Looks great!!! Thanks for the perfect idea!

I always put mine in the kid's bedrooms. Sometimes I hung them on the bed, sometimes from a knob on a dresser, sometimes I just propped them up. The rule was that they could open the things in their stockings whenever they woke up. But they couldn't open the things under the tree until I was up too. :)

The people with the piano must not play very often . . . just sayin'. I once hung mine above the piano, though, spaced evenly on the wall. I can't remember if I hung anything else up there with them, but I think it looked festive. Not magazine-perfect, but I wanted to throw it out there.

Thanks so much for sharing my stocking branch idea! :)
