DIY Christmas Stocking Holders Ideas

DIY Christmas Stocking Holders are a great Christmas Craft to make during the festive season. After all, Christmas is not complete until all the stockings have been lovingly hung. Traditionally we string them from the mantle – although we can get much more creative than that. For example ladders, branches, rails, and even pallets can be used too.
