Now that we’ve shown you how to hang stockings without a mantel, it’s time to get creative with your very own DIY stockings. This holiday season, get inspired by non-traditional designs like cacti or comfy-cozy materials like upcycled sweaters. Just be sure your DIY stocking stuffers are on fleek too. Sound overwhelming? It doesn’t have to be! Make a night of it by whipping up some spiked hot cocoa, turning on your fave holiday movie and making your way to a festive holiday.
