Done! How easy is that?!  And remember, if you don’t have a fireplace, you could place these anywhere.

I’m sad to say I hadn’t yet figured out this solution for the photo below, therefore I nailed the birch pieces to the wall, and then had to repair the nail holes. 🙁 But I included the photo to show that they look great on a typical sheetrock/paint wall.

So, the possibilities are endless!  Don’t go without hanging your stockings just because you don’t have a fireplace or mantel!  I love the way this looks on our fireplace, and they would be equally beautiful on a traditional brick or wood fireplace or wherever you want to hang them!
