Simple Scandinavian Stocking Hanger | Hello Lidy for Curbly

It's officially December, which means it's time to deck the halls and transform our homes into those festive retreats! But wait, no fireplace? No problem! This simple Scandinavian stocking hanger is stylish, easy-to-make and ready to hang wherever and whenever!     

Materials

  • Wood Dowel (I went with 1.5" diameter) 
  • Paint (I chose Maxx Gloss Patent Leather)
  • Paintbrush
  • Black Jelly Cord (cut to whatever length you prefer)
  • Pony Beads 
  • Optional: wood bead garland

Take your dowel and paint either ends. I opted for an unfinished look to create something a bit more edgy. You can easily tape the ends if you prefer cleaner lines. Allow to dry completely.

Step

While your dowel is drying, begin placing the pony beads in any pattern or randomly on your jelly cord. Be sure to secure the end with a knot and loop. This will be for hanging your dowel, but to also help prevent the beads from falling off.

Optional: At any time, you can simply change out your cord with another color, material or beads of any kind. You can even use a fun garland if you prefer. There are a lot of options to play with!

What I love about this project is how fast and straight forward it is. I love the traingular pattern it creates on our wall and how easy it is to transport from one room to another or storing it away for next year. You can also leave this on your wall year round and use for hanging throws, magazines or anything else you can think of. Just remember to replace cord with something thicker for heavier items. Happy crafting!

It's still saying "Invalid parameters. Could not fetch image." I've tried to pin different images from this page to see if maybe one would work, but none did. :/

Hi Audrey,
Thanks for reporting that; I think we have it fixed. Can you let me know if it works for you now?


bruno on Dec 21, 2015:

Thanks for catching that Audrey! I think we have it fixed. Can you take a look and make sure you can pin now?


Aubrey on Dec 20, 2015:

I don't know why, but I can never pin any of your projects on Pinterest! is there something you can do to make that possible??
