Do you have a fireplace with a mantel where you hang your Christmas stockings? If you answered yes, I’m a little jealous. I do not. So I’ve had to get a little creative in this house for Christmas stocking hanging. In the past I have used a shelf, my staircase bannister, and even an old ladder.
Here is what I’m doing this year. I made a DIY stocking holder and I absolutely love it! Maybe not quite as much as I would love to have a fireplace and mantel but it’s a close second!
In years past I have hung the stockings on the staircase bannister, on an old ladder, and from a shelf. This DIY Christmas stocking holder has those beat. Take a look:
And it was so so simple to make. I promise. No woodworking skills required. Please head over to the HomeRight site to see all the details and find out how you can make one too!
I am not a fan of painting so when it comes to painting my surfaces to use with Chalk Couture, I do them in batches and always use my HomeRight Super Finish Max paint sprayer . I take all of my boards outside on a nice day and lay them on a tarp. I then fill my paint sprayer 2 paint containers with two different paint colors and paint my boards in no time at all. Clean-up is so easy – I just fill the container with soapy water and spray. So much easier than cleaning expensive brushes and rollers. If I can get out of using a paint brush or roller, I am happy!
I can’t recommend using the HomeRight Super Finish Max paint sprayer enough. Every DIYer needs one in her workshop.
You can decorate your board however you like! Of course I chose to add snowflakes using the Chalk Couture Snowflakes transfer and white Chalkology pastes. But you could use vinyl stickers or paint on the snowflakes by hand. I don’t have that kind of time or talent so I’ll stick with Chalk Couture products.

My favorite part of this board is the glass knobs.
I also love the aged, distressed look. Do you?
It looks like I need to make a bigger board!!! How many stockings will you fill this year?
