Alright folks! Thanksgiving is over and now we can all officially start celebrating and creating for the best holiday of the year! We’ve already shared a handful of Christmas DIYs here this year but now we’re ready to jump all in with tons of festive ideas for gifts, decor and food.
This Christmas decor craft solves my most pervasive Christmas problem, “How on earth do I hang these stockings?!”
I seriously never know how to hang up stockings! How is it normally done?! My family always set our stockings out in a certain spot of the living room and all our gifts were laid out there as well so we didn’t really hang them except as decor beforehand. While I love the idea of having stockings so full and heavy that they can’t be hung :) I also love the typical hanging over the fireplace scene so I’m always on a hunt to figure out the best way to make this happen.
This year, I created these minimal and modern colorful toy stocking hangers and they were just what I was looking for!
Any array of toys can be used and any paint color as well! This DIY is not only incredibly easy but its fully customizable! Use toys or anything that suits each person! I love how colorful these are but I also think you can’t go wrong with all white for a super minimal look.
The vintage toys I used for these ones can easily be found in thrift stores or garage sales. Search those shelves! But an easier option would be plastic animals (and dinosaurs!), bottle brush trees, ornaments, hot wheels or other toy cars and trains. Look in the Christmas aisle at your local stores, search the party aisles (pinata fillings could be a great fit!) and look for stocking stuffers. But seriously, I’m not kidding you, thrift stores will be your best friend if you want some truly Christmasy hangers.
This DIY is seriously TWO STEPS! That’s all! Head over to ehow to see the steps and more pictures!
