Ribbon Stand

I reassembled and repurposed a Christmas stocking tree for my studio. I wrap each order from my shop in tissue paper and baker’s twine, and my new ribbon stand will be very handy.

Pottery Barn has a similar (maybe better) item right now: the ribbon organizer.

    A stocking tree is for people that don’t have a mantle to hang Christmas stockings off of. I actually didn’t buy mine for that reason though…

    A few years ago, Jonathan Adler designed a whole Christmas collection for Hold Everything. After the holidays were over, eveything was deeply discounted. I bought two of the stocking trees because I figured I could use them for craft shows. They have a heavy weighted base, and the top part (which I removed) had four arms that you could hang things from.

    oh that’s a good idea. I have a bunch of those stocking trees that have lost some arms :( I may need to borrow this idea!

    Thanks for the clarification, Nicole. I couldn’t figure out what a x-mas stocking tree was either.

    And speaking of Christmas, you may be interested in my latest blog post. It’s about how I really don’t want to listen to Christmas music the day after Halloween. I was on a little bit of a rant : )

    Oh that print in the background is adorable! Did you make that? If not, would you reveal the source? Thanks!!
