The stocking-festooned mantel is an image that goes hand-in-hand with the holiday season. Many homes, however, especially newer ones, are without this traditional architectural element. If you find yourself mantel-less this holiday, have no fear! Caitlin and Manda from The Merrythought have come up with a beautiful (and crazy simple) way to get in on all of the stocking-hanging action! Check out the project below!
Branch Stocking Display
Greenery (we used eucalyptus)
Fishing line or string
Hammer & small nails
If needed, cut branch to size. Attach greenery to branch by wrapping a length of floral wire around branch and greenery stems. Once it is securely wrapped, twist both ends of the wire together and fold over on the back side of the branch. If needed, add small nails to branch for stockings to hang from. Cut two lengths of fishing line for hanging the branch and tie around branch near each end. Hammer nails into the wall. Tie tight loops at the end of each line and hang from nails. Once branch is secure, hang your stockings!
