DIY Stocking Hanger

Hi everyone!  Tonight I made an easy DIY Stocking Hanger I wanted to share with you.  So Sorry for the late post, but I spent the day helping a friend make the lovely lighted gift blocks shown on our blog for her office gift party.

DIY Stocking Hanger

The DIY stocking hanger was a quick little project.  I love the ideas of red and white injected into at least one room of my home, so the choice to do this with a simple DIY stocking hanger really spoke to me.  Our last home had a lovely fireplace, but the new home does not have a fireplace, so I had to get inventive so Santa would find those stockings.

Here’s what I did.

First, I took and old frame of black from my decorator closet and popped out the glass.  I added a piece of sheet metal I purchased from Lowe’s for about $3.99.  It was a perfect fit for the frame so I did not have to cut it.  I simple took out the glass and popped in the sheet metal to give us a beautiful background.

Then, I added my letters “JOY” purchased at Joann’s for $3.99 each.  I simply added red and white stripped ribbon purchased from Michael’s and tied into a bow.  Then I hot glued the letters to the sheet metal.

Next, I added four small clothes pins purchased from Joann’s (bag $3.49).  I Hot glued each clothes pin to the bottom of the frame.

After the clothes pins were set, I hung simple red stockings purchased at Joann’s for $2.99 each, added a beautiful wooden ornament left from my wrapping box last year, and small Christmas charms that are really wine glass tags, to each stocking.  I finished off the look by adding a red and white stripped candy cane to each stocking.

This easy DIY stocking hanger is hung behind our dining table.  It helped to balance the easy DIY candy cane center piece for the table we did a couple days ago.  I also added one of the Painted Christmas Ornaments I completed in yesterday’s post to my center piece to give it a little pop of green.  Make sure you stop by Bob Vila and see our Painted Christmas Ornaments post  featured on his site.

To me it’s the simple things you can make that brighten your Christmas decor.  These little touches of red and white remind me of my grandmother.  She always had one room that was all red and white, this small touch to our home makes me feel like a child again and think of her 🙂   Well, that’s Hello I Live Here’s post for tonight.  I hope you enjoy trying this Easy DIY stocking hanger craft project.

Thanks for stopping by to view our Christmas decor ideas.  Happy DIY crafting – see you all tomorrow!
