Here’s a shopper’s choice of Christmas stockings to hang on the fireplace mantel.
Whether you’re expecting a lump of coal or Italian chocolates, beautiful handmade Christmas stockings are a mantel must. This trio of embroidered stockings [top] were handcrafted in India and include an assortment of eclectic embellishments. Bells, sequins, tinsels, tassels and lace are artistically combined with metallic threads, rich colors and fine gauze fabrics for Boho-ho-ho décor.
A white felt Madeleine stocking features an embroidered tree and appliqué bird accented with jeweled sequins.
The sequins and metallic threads on this duo by Kim Seybert will add sparkle to the living room. The detail on the Ethnic stocking [left], and pattern on the Ikat, give off a global vibe.
Santa won’t overlook his letter when it is placed in the pocket of this hand-felted wool stocking. I just love this special touch and so will any child, I think. Its use of traditional Christmas colors and a simplistic design have that old fashioned holiday feel. Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, Santa will love finding beautiful Christmas stockings hanging on your mantel. And so will the family.
