In our house, we have always had the problem of where to hang our stockings. We have never had a fireplace or a mantel to speak of and using those cute stocking hangers you find at the store has always seemed a hazard with a little one about the house. I have always wanted something I could hang up, as a decoration for the holiday but out of the way of grabbing hands, when I saw these cute frames I knew they were the solution.
These cute frames come from Poppyseed Projects, a fabulous store located in Sandy, UT. You can buy them at the store or order items from them online. You can use any sort of frame for these hangers as long as the frame is not super thin.
You will need:
- Christmas pictures
- a drill
First, drill a hole in the bottom center of each frame. The hole should be slightly smaller than the the hook you want to put in them. Then paint the frames any color you like. I chose red and green in true Christmas fashion. After the paint is dry, add pictures to the frames. I have found the best place to find Christmas pictures is the cover of Christmas cards. I just taped my pictures in the frames. Santa for my husband, Mrs. Claus for me and a little elf for my daughter.
After the pictures are in the frames, screw the hooks into the bottom of the frames. Add a picture hanger to the back of each frame.
After you have added hangers, you can hang the stockings right on the wall, out of the way of little reaching hands.
