Stocking holders

Using U Create's November Project for inspiration, Erin and I (and her dad) made her stocking holders for her new home.

We got a 2 x 6 scrap board, cut each four pieces 5-1/4" each. Mike used his router and made a groove for the frames..  The frames are 4 x 6 frames from Hobby Lobby (50% off) and with the routed groove, Erin can change what is in the frame.  A little bit of paint on all the wooden surfaces, she has mostly turquoise and red ornaments for her tree.

The frames have scrapbooking paper background and initials cut out with my Silhouette.  She bought hooks in our small town but they were the wrong color, so she painted them her trim paint color.

Stocking found at Hobby Lobby and yes one for their dog.  I am going to embroidery their names on felt and then stitch it onto the stockings.

 Aren't they cute?  And very inexpensive to make.  I might need new ones, I really like Shanty 2 Chic's holders with the clothespin.  I am thinking a cute picture of the girls when they were little, dressed in their Christmas finest.


  1. They are definiteloy cute. I would use them year around by getting large wooden initials, painting them, and tying them onto the stocking holders with ribbons.

  2. Cute project! I've added this website to my Google Reader :-)

  3. What a brilliant idea! With this inspiration, perhaps I'll actually get my UFO stockings finished and hung.

  4. What a great idea and these are so cute!

  5. Beautiful Stocking Holders. Maybe you could design one for firefighters and I could put them on my website. I sell Firefighter Christmas Stockings. They are wonderful firefighter gifts. Visit

  6. Very cute! Glad to see the pooch wasn't left out :)
