I’ve always been a huge fan of the Christmas holidays as I love to entertain, decorate, bake, find the perfect present, let alone it is a time of bubbly and mistletoe. Over the years I’ve collected a few huge storage bins of decorations but surprisingly the one thing I never owned was a stocking holder. So to add to my excessively large Christmas decoration collection I decided to DIY some personal monogram Christmas stocking holders to use this year so everyone could easily find their stocking on Christmas morning.
To keep this DIY nice and fast, I used pre-cut wooden letters, a small wooden plaque and a screw hook. The first two items I got at Michael’s craft store for a dollar each, while the hooks were $2.00 for 4. Instead of using the wooden plaques you could use a small block of wood, but I wanted the extra detailing on the stocking holder bases.
Next it was time to add the wooden letter so I placed a small amount of wood glue at the base of the letter so that it would stick to the wood plaque.
After the wood glue has dried I gave two coats of paint using Rust-oleum gold metallic finish spray paint to get everything the same beautiful gold color.
The end result I believe is truly spectacular, as while it only costs $2.25 to make a DIY stocking holder it looks like something I might pay $40 in stores for.
A huge thank you goes out to Rust-Oleum for providing me with the spray paint for this project, all content and opinions are that of my own. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that keep this site going! Read more about my editorial policies.
