Christmas stockings are such a big part of decorating for Christmas. As you are hanging the stockings on the mantle, you have a great idea. Why not make stockings the theme for your entire Christmas decorating scheme this year?
You can start with your tree. Have fun with a white artificial tree or go with a traditional green tree. Either color will look great with the red and white colors of your stocking decorations. Strings of stocking-shaped lights are a good foundation for your tree's decorating scheme. Next, add white and red balls. Finally, you have to deal with the big challenge of deciding which of the many wonderful ornaments that have a stocking on them are going to go on
the tree. You can find stocking ornaments with pets on them, balls with stocking images on them and stockings stuffed with golf clubs.
To add festive touches around the home, look for figurines with a stocking theme. You can use a figurine holding a stocking to quickly dress up a side table, a buffet, or a book shelf. An entire group of figurines can make a big statement if you set one on each stair tread, close to the wall.
Finally, don't forget to hang velvet or felt stockings on the mantle, on doorknobs and on empty wreath hooks.
