Where to Hang Stockings When You Don’t Have a Mantel

Last Updated on March 3, 2022

Hey friends!  Today, I am talking about a Christmas decorating dilemma…  Here's the thing.  Lots of people have mantels from which to hang their Christmas stockings, but lots of people don't.  We have always had a mantel until we moved into our current home, which is contemporary. We have been embracing the contemporary architecture since we moved in, including totally modernizing our fireplace with a sleek concrete finish.  To get the clean look we wanted, it meant we had to sacrifice a mantel.  That left us with the question of where to hang stockings when you don't have a mantel.

Good news!  We have solved the problem of where to hang stockings when you don't have a mantel.  This solution is inexpensive and easy, a winning combination :)  This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.  Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
