Vintage Stocking Stretcher DIY




You know the old saying..

"when life gives you lemons"..?

Yeah, that one.

Well, 

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!

  6. Now THAT is clever and so, so adorable (and resourceful). Good job! I'm sure Santa can find a spot to leave goodies - even bigger ones that wouldn't fit in a stocking!
