diy: stocking holders.

jenn pan

we bought personalized velvet stockings (don't you just love the little elf sock one for sanford?!), and needed some way of putting them on the mantle place. so with a piece of spare firewood, some hooks and spray paint, we made our own! though, there is certainly still some work to do on them - anything heavier than the stocking itself would yank them right off at the moment.

james was super stoked to be able to finally use the miter saw we bought over the summer. it had been purchased with plans to build a fancy planter box, but unforeseen circumstances put those plans on hold.

after drilling pilot holes into the little cut logs, we screwed in some screw hooks we'd picked up.

before spray painting, i taped around the screw-in point and then wrapped with more paper and tape, just to be safe!

the rust-oleum in champagne mist was so pretty that i also busted out about half the pinecones we'd bought to decorate with and gave them a gentle spritzing too!

since we can't put anything in the stockings yet, we'll need to do some more work to them so that they can be weighted down from behind the holder itself.

the star and garland-ing was from michaels, and the stockings were from pottery barn.
