Vintage Stockings: How to use stockings in your home decor.
There are many ways to decorate your home in the winter. Some people like to showcase their Christmas tree, but others prefer to display their stockings. Stockings can add a lot to your holiday decor and they don't just have to be hung up on the mantle!

- Create an accent wall with vintage stockings. Choose several different colors and patterns for your accent walls, then arrange them so they create a cohesive pattern as in this photo above.

Make a vintage stocking wreath for your door.
If you have a door, this is the perfect place to hang your wreath. This can also be used as a wall decoration. It's easy to make and very versatile for all different types of homes.
First, purchase a wire hanger from any store where they sell clothes or household items. You may need to use two hangers if you want a larger wreath or if you're making one for someone else who has wider doors than yourself! Once you have your wire hanger, spray paint it with whatever color of spray paint you like best (or find most festive). A lot of people choose red because it feels Christmassy but other colors like green and blue are also popular during Christmas time too!
Next up: decorate the stocking itself! One thing that makes old stockings look so great is when they're covered in snowflakes so go ahead and spray some glitter on top of them while they're wet with paint—this will help lock everything into place nicely! After that's done just leave them out overnight before hanging them back up again; though don't forget about those decorations inside either--they'll need plenty more attention paid towards them too!"
Use vintage stockings in your Christmas tree decor.
When it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, you'll find that vintage stockings can be used in a variety of ways.
- Hang your stocking on a branch
- Use it as an ornament instead of the traditional glass ball or star
- Use it as a tree skirt with garland wrapped around it (perfect for those who don't want to spend money on expensive ones)
- Use it as an accent piece on top of your mantle or fireplace
Vintage stockings are more versatile than you'd think!
Vintage stockings are more versatile than you'd think! Sure, they're great for hanging on the mantle or above your hearth. But they can also be used in a variety of other ways to add color and texture to your home (and keep it festive). Here are a few ideas:
- Frame them. Stockings make perfect art pieces when hung on the wall by themselves or grouped with other vintage objects (like old Christmas cards or photos).
- Use them as decorating accents. An old woolen stocking makes a great gift bag for cookies or small gifts at Christmas time—or even as part of an outdoor wreath!
- Hang them from the ceiling. You don't have to limit yourself to traditional Christmas decorations; these will add some fun interest no matter what time of year it is!
We hope these easy decorating ideas have inspired you to add vintage stockings to your home! They’re a great way to add some vintage flair, and if you don’t have any on hand, it’s easy enough to pick up a few at a local thrift store. You can use them for all sorts of things: hanging from walls or shelves as accents or decorations; framing in frames; making wreaths out of small ones; adding one large stocking per door frame (or two) as an alternative Christmas decoration… the list goes on!
