No Mantle Stocking Solution

We don't have a mantle, but of course still want to hang stockings.  So I got some wood, paint, and hooks and created this stocking hanger for our family of 6.
 I  added the fun quote with vinyl (my mom has a Cricut)  and some snowflakes.
 I just bought a pack of hooks at the hardware store and screwed them to the board.
It is attached to the wall with some Command velcro strips so there will not be permanent holes in the wall after the stockings come down.   There are currently no stockings hanging on it for good reason!  I've been wanting to make some new stockings for years, and this is finally the year!  Can't wait to finish them and show you!

    1. Hi Shawna! Sorry I took so long to get back to you-I just had to dig it out of my Christmas bin.:) My board is 3 feet by 7 1/2 inches. I hope that helps! I'm so happy you like it!

  6. Will the Velcro be strong enough to hold up the board once the stockings are filled?

    1. Hi Bridget! Yes, the 'Command hooks' velcro is not regular velcro. It is super duty! Ours held up just fine even with the full stockings. :)
