12 Days of Christmas Ideas--Day 5

On the fifth day of Christmas Beyond The Picket Fence showed me...a different place to hang a stocking (not the best rhyme tonight, sorry).  Oh, and before I forget, the Under $100 Linky Party will post as planned tomorrow evening, it will just also have my day 6 idea.
No fireplace?  Want somewhere different to hang a stocking?  How about a locker basket?

Hang it on a couple nails on the wall.  You could then use an S hook, a ribbon or curtain hooks like I did to hang your stockings.  You can read about the stockings here.
The possibilities from there are endless.  I added a bowl for cards and a few favorite Christmas books.  One of those is Tasha Tudor's Becky's Christmas.  The elementary school where I used to teach was discarding and the librarian knew I loved it so she gave it to me!
You could attach cards or Christmas photos with clothespins, hang Christmas ornaments or balls inside, add a candle (it is a metal basket).

 No locker basket?  Use a sturdy woven basket or a wood crate.  Get creative with it!  Find more great ideas at Funky Junk Interiors!


  1. Cute. Since we have a wood burning stove, ours hang on a canoe paddle with pegs on it. It works. :)
    Thanks for voting for our Christmas card pic. Hubby and I are still debating. :)

  2. Cute and . . . I have that same bowl. It always strikes me as fun when I see the stuff I have on other people's blogs. Yes, I'm a dork. ;)

  3. HEY Becky! Im your newest follower! I BEYOND ADORE that you put your faith out there...I do as well...Without God I would be a MESS! I LOVE your blog and would love for you to visit my 14 days of christmas trees....and a GIVEAWAY :)


  4. Ooooooo....metal coolness. I like. :) That is a very creative solution for stockings for certain!


  5. Wonderfully done! Love the stockings and the metal basket and the bowl. Very neat.

  6. Great idea, especially if you have no mantle or just want to change it up!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
