This is a wonderful example of great family styling for a photo shoot. Except for the yellow stockings of the little girl just to bright and distracting. See how the styling works so well in the images
No mantle / mantel no problem. DIY Christmas xmas stocking holder. used scrap wood for most part: 4x4 for the post, 2x4 mitered pieces as a collar at the bottom, plywood base and then a post cap for the top. The ball was threaded and bought separately, just drilled a hole and threaded in. After painting white I also sprayed a glitter spray all over to give it a snowy shimmer.
