How to Hang Christmas Stockings


How to Hang Christmas Stockings. Legend has it that Saint Nicholas once dropped a few coins down the chimney of the home of three poor sisters. The coins would have been lost in the ashes if they hadn't landed neatly in the stockings left to dry by the hearth. Hoping for similar fortune, we leave our stockings there too. Here are some ideas for hanging your stockings with care.

Things You'll Need

  • Bows
  • Stocking Hangers
  • Christmas Garlands
  • Christmas Stockings
  • Clothespins
  • Wire Twists
  • Staples
  • Thumbtacks
  • Hammers
  • Small Common Nails
  • Staple Guns
  • Find some pretty brass or ceramic stocking hangers that sit on the mantel for the easiest and quickest way to hang stockings. Hook the loop on the stocking over the hanger.

  • String a garland across the mantel and secure the ends well with thumbtacks or staples. Then clothespin your stockings to the garland. (Be aware that the garland probably won't bear much weight and the stockings should be empty while hanging.)

  • Hammer small nails gently into the mantel and hang your stockings directly onto the nails. Hide the nails with garland or sprigs of mistletoe.

  • Use small wire twists or pretty bows to tie your stockings to a rail or banister if you don't have a fireplace.
