For those with out a fireplace mantel to put your stockings on, we have the perfect solution. A wooden sign with the cute saying . . . "the stockings were hung . . . " This was another project from our craft group last year. We did them in a variety of ways.
Like this one with stars above the nails. . .
Or this one with stars on the ends and a 3 foot board . . .
We had a lot of fun painting, sticking vinyl on our boards, sanding and banging those nails in. Hope they don't mind I posted some pictures of them hard at work. The boards were the same size as our Family Home Evening boards that we have made in the past and so they could hang them in the same place during December.
