Stocking Hangers

I have been on the search for stocking hangers for about the last 4-5 years.  Every year I find some I like, then realize that at $15-20 a piece, with 4 kids, I could pay over $75 dollars for them – yikes!  So I figure I’ll get them on sale after the holidays – and then of course I can’t ever find them.  And so the saga continues to the next year.

Well during my blog-hopping I saw some made out of 2x4s over at Crap I’ve Made and I realized I should just make some – why didn’t I think of that before?!?

We’ve got tons of aged cedar for our playhouse project, so that’s what I used.  I liked the look of the aged wood, so I left the base plain.  I covered the tops to look like presents and hot-glued on bows.  Eventually I’ll hang a gift tag off them with each kids’ name…

Oh, are you noticing that my 2 and 4 year old don’t have stockings yet – I’m getting there!!

    I love the stocking holders!! Ingenius! Plus they are probably heavier than the ones you buy and won’t fall off as soon as the stocking is stuffed. LUVE IT!

    Wow! What a great idea! I was laughing at your explanation of not finding stocking hangers, because I am in the EXACT same boat. They are so expensive and then I wait too long. Your are darling, and you have inspired me to try to craft my own. : )
