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 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?

YES! To make this stocking stand even more special, I made stocking name tags (tutorial here).

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.
