For video and more details please read through our very similar Farmhouse Coffee Table tutorial. Most of the steps are the same, just different cut lengths.
Here’s a quick, easy handmade gift for under $10!
Are you searching for the perfect hostess gift? What if a wine caddy could be useful for more than just transporting the wine?
Using up scrap wood, I built this wood wine holder that does it all! It stacks, it stores, it even serves! We love it as a easy wood gift project.
Wood Wine Holder Features
- Works as a wine crate for easy transporting
- Great handmade gift for the wine lover
- Flips over to become a wine rack with useable space on top
- Can be stacked to add more wine storage
How to Build the Wood Wine Holder – Video Tutorial
This project is so quick and easy to build! We go through all the steps in the project plan video here-
No Jigsawing Version (Even Quicker and Easier!)
If cutting the curves out with a jigsaw intimidates you, don’t worry! You can skip it all together and just use 1x2s instead of the 1x3s.
It also still stacks just like the 1×3 version (see unfinished in photos)
I do prefer the 1×3 version with the wine cutouts because it looks more custom and the wine is more secure in the project, but for a quick gift, the 1×2 version is just fine.

One of my friends wanted to hang stockings for Christmas, but doesn’t have a fireplace. She didn’t want to build an entire mantle, and didn’t want to drill holes in her wall to hang a stocking shelf.
So I built her a stocking stand!
Stocking Stand Features
- Quick and easy DIY project
- Only cost about $20 to build
- Just cut 2x4s and screw together
- Sturdy and stable – doesn’t feel flimsy or cheap
- Beautiful farmhouse style wood tones will add texture to your home
- Can lengthen easily or add more hooks for more stockings
- Customize the stain color to match your home’s style
Stocking Stand Video Tutorial
To help you build your own stocking stand, I also put together a video tutorial of the build process, so you can watch and use it to help you make your own stocking stand.
Is there a tutorial for the stocking name tags?
The name tags were very easy to make and really took the project to the next level! So much cheaper than buying personalized Christmas stockings, and so easy to change out.
Where are the stockings from?
I purchased the stockings at Joann’s for $10 a stocking (on sale 50% off). The stockings are nice and thick, fully lined and keep their shape. You will love them! Here’s the link.
