Stockings are a staple to the Christmas décor. While the ideal place for its decoration is mantelpiece, there are plenty of other places to hang stockings as well, like tabletop trees, chairs, stairs and even walls. The style of stocking is very important. Patterned stockings look amazing! You could choose traditional red and white or go for something a little different and use multi-coloured stockings.
If you do not fancy putting just gifts in the stockings, you can make them a large decorative feature by filling them to the brim with different coloured baubles which suit you Christmas colour theme.
