DIY Christmas Decorations with Hooks and Hook Racks

Decorative Hooks

It’s that time of year again - holiday decorations get pulled out of storage, new eggnog recipes are tested, Christmas carols are sung and family and friends come to visit.  You’ve probably already started working on turning your home into the perfect festive setting for your holiday get-togethers.  Well, we have collected some Christmas past, present and future ideas that will add more cheer to your holiday décor and impress even your surly uncle Ebenezer.

 Christmas Past Idea

This decorative stocking holder DIY project from a Christmas past was a fun and easy way to create a stunning mantelpiece holiday display.  With a little bit of paint and some decorative Ruavista hooks in a vintage bronze with copper highlights finish, a simple cedar planter box was transformed into an innovative and versatile holiday centerpiece for the family or living room.  Holiday stockings could now be hung in style from the hooks on the box while fragrant potpourri in the box perfumed the air.  A couple of additional hooks installed to the underside of the mantle provided a great way to display some gorgeous lanterns for a more complete look.

Christmas Present Ideas

If you don’t have any hooks or hook racks in home, then there’s no time like Christmas present to add some to your décor.  Hooks and hook racks are a great tool for adding holiday warmth and charm throughout your home.  We love some of the following holiday décor looks that can be created using hooks or hook racks.

A few holiday decorations hung by the door add instant cheer.

Christmas Future Ideas

What we like most about using hooks and hook racks with our holiday décor is that once holiday decorations have been packed away again we still have beautiful and functional storage for tomorrow.  The DIY stocking holder from our Christmas past can continue to be used throughout the year by simply changing the box contents and items on the hooks to create a different look, while the hooks and hook racks you install in your home this Christmas will provide stylish storage to hang your hats, coats or bags well into the future.
