Festive Stocking Door Hanger/ Wreath Alternative

2 Materials
30 Minutes

Hi there Hometalk, Friends! I love decorating with fresh wreaths for Christmas, but if you live in a warm climate like I do, options may be limited. Today, I’ll show you a simple wreath alternative using a festive stocking…

The holidays are upon us, but there is still time to craft this last minute project. You can hang these indoors or on entry doors depending on the stocking you choose. If you plan to hang your stocking outside, just make sure to choose one that can withstand the outdoor elements. Need a stocking? Look here! 

If your door is metal, start by gluing a few magnets on the back of the stocking to keep it in place when the door opens and shuts. If the stocking looks too flat, you can add plastic bags or tissue to the stocking toe and heel to plump it up.

Next, use fishing line or thread to attach a greeting tag or sign.

Then, arrange holiday greenery in floral tubes of water to keep it fresh, and place it in the top of the stocking once you have hung it. Look here for floral tubes!

The floral tubes really keep the greenery fresh–even in 80 degree Texas weather!
