My DIY Stocking Board

I made this stocking board last Christmas and never got a chance to share......

I had this drawer front that my hubby brought me from work that was destined for the trash.
I knew the size was just perfect for a stocking board.

And I liked the finish enough that I didn't have to paint it or anything- a major bonus during busy December!

The other cool thing was that there were already 4 holes drilled in it for where the drawer handles would have gone. So I didn't have to measure out where I added my hooks. Sa-weet!

I bought these 2 packs of chrome knobs. Each package of 2 was about $6.

After adding on the knobs, the mister hung it up for me. He drilled through the board and placed it where the studs in the wall were. Then I added a little plastic cover on each screw, those somewhat blend in. 

For the star in the middle, I used part of a glitter-y tree ornament that I already had. I used a few dabs of hot glue to keep in in place for the month of December.

The great thing is that I remove the star after Christmas and I keep the board up year-round.
It is in the hallway between both entrances so it is a great spot for my son to hang his school backpack & it's also where the library bag hangs.

I love how simple this project was to put together, and that the only cost was buying the knobs!

If you want to make something similar, a piece of wood that is painted or stained would be a good alternative.

We have started to "deck the halls" around here for Christmas. 
When do YOU decorate for Christmas time??


  1. Well that is really clever and easy! I don't have a mantel, so this is a great idea for me!

  2. That is clever, I have to make a stocking holder. I have some wood from a bed not being used and there are 7 of us so it should be toobig :)

  3. Cute! I would love if you would share on Fall Into the Holidays!
