So I decided to just screw it and nailed in some picture hooks. I didn't measure, I just eyeballed it, so they're not perfect, but that's okay. The kids are thrilled. It makes the corner look nice. We're good I think!
I bought these stockings a couple of years ago from Target at their after Christmas sales (75% off!). I like the plaid a lot. I decided to personalize them by using iron on velvet lettering I got at Crafters Warehouse.
When I got them that long ago, I bought 2 extra stockings for our future babies. Here is my youngest's name. I still have another stocking waiting for this next little one. I love it when a plan comes together!
I had bought a tree skirt that matched, but it was so tiny, I wanted a bigger skirt. So we made a new skirt with a faux wool type material and lining. Then we cut up the old skirt and made patches out of it
I used more of the lettering here to personalize it for us
I transferred the buttons and ties from the old one too for some pizzaz
Here is the rearranged living room. I had to move that white table away from the tree so I had room for presents! I think the stockings help finish off the room.
The tree is ready for presents! And I'm ready for Christmas
