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.

what is a christmas stocking tree?
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!
this is really random but i thought i’d introduce myself because i am a perpetual “making it lovely” stalker. so hi. your house is adorable. it reminds me a lot of some of my artwork. happy continual decorating to you! -samithesecretlifeofdaydreams.blogspot.com
Very cute! (and functional!)
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!!
oh wow–that spool looks like the paper towel dispense in my kitchen. i just chucked it in the basement and replaced it with an under-the-sink mount. maybe i’ll s..trip and repaint it white! cool-inspired!
