Vintage Stocking Stretcher DIY

You know the old saying..

"when life gives you lemons"..?

Yeah, that one.


I have been up to my eyeballs painting signs and with all that ...

I get a lot of scraps.

Enter Country Living...

Oh the pure sweetness in this photo!

So I drew out a few on paper and hung them up just to see...

I hit my scrap pile up and found some perfect pieces.

I used a jigsaw to cut these out.

At the top of each stocking, I drilled a hole in each one.

Using some wire my husband had around, I hung them from my mantel.

How sweet!

The concern did fill my kids faces.

How's Santa gonna fill our stockings?

Keep in mind my babies are 23, 21 and 13.

I just smiled a Grinch kinda smile...mwaahaahaa

No worries kids...

I have back up stockings ;)

  1. Love, love, love this! We never hang our stockings over the fireplace because of the heat, but I love the look of stockings on the mantle... so this is brilliant. I actually made some wood stocking stretchers last year for a giveaway, but never thought to do this with them. Thank you!

    My kids are 24, 22 and 13...and they still want
