A Christmas Craft

Yes, I know it's a little early for Christmas stuff, but I just finished a project we did for our craft club this month. I'm not sure who to give credit to for this idea. I know one of the ladies had one that we used as the example, but I don't know if she made it or bought it. 

Anyway, we made a stocking 'board' for lack of a better word. Most of us here in sunny Las Vegas don't have fireplaces in our homes and in the two years I've been married we've spent them either moving (yep, we moved on Christmas Eve) or travelling, I haven't hung stockings, in fact, I don't think we even have stockings...maybe I should work on that next. For me this was quite perfect.

We had a woman in our ward cut the vinyl for us that made the lettering really easy. The specific dimensions are 9"X30", which we had cut from a sheet of nice quality plywood. Then next step was a little sanding, painting, and weeding out the vinyl lettering. Once the paint dried and the vinyl was on, we drilled holes for the hooks and put sawtooth picture hangers on the back. 

It was super easy and I love how it turned out. One of the other women was painting hers red and white because she decorates with a peppermint theme, I can't wait to see how hers turned out!


  1. It turned out cute!!! I'm actually working on stocking right now.(Well I got the material yesterday, but I haven't done anything yet)

  2. That is such a cute idea! I guess there are places in the world that don't have fireplaces...haha.

  3. Fun! My friend did the same thing, she added lots of fun snowflakes and ribbons on her pegs, too. Great minds think alike!

  4. I have one very similar! Helps out when you lack a fireplace! Following you!
