Stocking Holders

Well as the snow has fallen today I feel it only fitting to start posting some Christmas crafts and to check another project off of my to-do list.

Although I don't have a fireplace mantel to hang my stockings on I do have a few other places in the house that this will work.  I have searched in the past for stocking holders and every year I think $20.00  for each one and five family members is just to outrageous.  

So what is a girl to do?

This is what I came up with


So easy to make right?



I decided to finish them with a simple look using just white because the stockings I made are so colorful.  I had an extra 2x4 in the garage so I cut it up to the size I needed and found these cute cardboard trees at a craft store for $1.50 each.  I gave each of them a coat of gold and added the gold hook to match. 



I can't wait to get the stockings done so I can show you those as well.

How cute! I love the look--these definitely look like something you'd buy in a store. (And yes, that's supposed to be a compliment. ;)
