We have Christmas stockings for everyone in the family. They hang on a shelf because we don't have a fireplace. With the addition of Alaina to the family, there are now 7 stockings, which makes for a lot of stocking holders.
So, when I saw an idea on Pinterest, about hanging numerous stockings using only a few holders I was interested. They said to place two stocking holders on the shelf or mantle, and then lay a small curtain rod into it. You can then slide as many stockings as needed onto the rod.
Here's a close up of the rod setting in my stocking holder.
Another idea I pinned was to label the stockings by taking a wooden letter and painting it silver or gold, and tying it to the stocking. I found letters at Hobby Lobby that were very reasonably priced, and I spray painted them silver.
Here's the finished product; 7 stockings hung and labeled with everyone's first initial.
I think these were both great Pinterest ideas!
