Chinoiserie Christmas Stockings DIY


One Kings Lane has on sale fantastic Christmas stockings in some of our favorite Chinoiserie fabrics and other favorite designer fabrics that go beautifully with Chinoiserie. These include Quadrille Java Java, Schumacher Nanjing, Schumacher Imperial Trellis, Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches, ikat, Cowtan & Tout Ocelot, and GP & J Baker Heron Lotus Flower. These would be a great DIY project if you have any remnants left over from another project. Sellers on eBay and Etsy are often selling samples and remnants.

Stockings can be used other places besides the fireplace mantel. They are wonderful adornment over the holidays draped over a chair back, an ottoman, a bench, or a bed or going up a staircase.

I am currently on the hunt for stocking hangers for my mantel that would go with my own growing collection of Chinoiserie Christmas stockings like Greek key, elephants, or foo dogs. No luck yet but I'll let you know if I find any.
