No Fireplace Mantel for Stockings? No Problem!

Posted December 18th, 2013 by Jenn

We don’t have a mantel, and it was frustrating when it came time to hang the stockings by the chimney with care. I looked around on the internet, but it turned out there was very little to choose from when it came to hanging things on brick! I ended up fashioning something out of what we had here at home, and I was pretty pleased with how it came out!

All I had to do to achieve this was secure one 3M hanger (with the adhesive backs) on either side of the brick face. I let that sit overnight, and then I strung some heavy Christmas-themed ribbon across and tied the ends around the hooks. I then used some leftover wire ornament hangers for the ‘hangers’, and voila! The stockings hung beautifully!

One word of caution: This is not ideal for stockings that are filled. I’d suggest leaving Santa a note and telling him to remove the stockings, fill them, and then place them somewhere else, like on a table or couch.
