Christmas Stocking Hanger / Holder

Here's a little project I just finished, that I am Sooo happy with!!
It was simple, cheap, and fun to do...
Win * Win* Win..  :)


We don't have a great place to hang stockings in our home so, I purchased a stocking holder/hanger similar to this years ago... OK, it had a no saying and a Santa on it...but the same idea....you hang the board and then hang your stocking on it...

(By the way these are a sampling of the stockings I sell on Etsy).  :)
anyway....
Here's how I made the Stocking Hanger:
I started with a board from who knows where, that was laying around my house.  I stenciled BELIEVED and MAGIC first using cheap stencils I bought from Walmart.


I then added the "in the" and the reindeer and snowflakes.  The blue didn't show up the way I wanted on the flakes so I went around them with a sharpie.  I spray painted four wooden drawer pulls and the also stenciled them after the dried.


I drilled the srews threw the back of the sign and then screwed the drawer pulls on....


I thought I was going to have to run to the hardware store to get the thing-e-ma-bobs to hang it but then I remembered  seeing on pinterest a way to use the tabs off soda cans and being that I am a Diet Coke addict...there were plenty of tabs to be had!!!  :)


I went to my Helpful Hints Board and sure enough there was the pin!
I zipped on over to: apartment therapy followed her simple instructions and ..Va-La...no need for a trip to the store after all!  :)


I plan on making some more for my space down at Viking Village...just need to come up with some more boards!!
As usual, I will be linking up to many of the link parties on my side..do check them out!!
And Thanks for Visiting!!!
