DIY Branch Stocking Display

If you’re looking for a more creative place to hang your stockings this year – or maybe like us, you don’t even have the fireplace/mantle option – this stocking display is a fun alternative! We’ve teamed up with West Elm to share this simple, natural way to hang those pretty stockings! This branch stocking display, with some greenery, brings a touch of nature indoors while keeping things simple and festive.

DIY Branch Stocking Display @themerrythoughtDIY Branch Stocking Display @themerrythoughtIf 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 from 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!DIY Branch Stocking Display @themerrythoughtDIY Branch Stocking Display @themerrythoughtBe sure to pop on over to West Elm’s blog, Front + Main, for more details & product info!
