DIY Christmas Stocking Ladder

22 Dec

I have been looking for a new way to hang my stockings and came across these ladders all over Pinterest. Each one was completely different but it came down to the same thing….. rustic ladder with some hooks. I leaned on my hubby a bit for this project 🙂

Chris picked up some 1×4’s and 1×6’s at the store. We already had the dark stain at home. We determined the height and Chris played around with cutting the ends (to better lean against the wall) and he got to work!

The Kreg Jig is a great invest and way to hide all of the screws!

After the stain dried, he took some steel wool to it so distress is a bit.

All assembled

We installed some hooks (smallest I could find at the store but honestly love how they look on it!)

Also, a special thanks to Chris’ Aunt Cindy for making 3 out of the 4 stockings! Chris’ was made from his Nana. We love out homemade stockings!!

I plan on removing the garland after Christmas and using it to hang blankets pictures frames from it!

DIY Grapevine Christmas Wreath

12 Dec

Back for another week of Pinterest Christmas. This is a bit of a two parter. I created something for my stockings (that is coming next week) but I need a wreath to hang above it. After looking up a few Christmas wreathes on Pinterest, I decided I wanted to go in the grapevine direction with a big J. I hit the craft store and picked up a few items, not really knowing what direction I wanted to head in.

I stared moving all of the floral around and got it to a place that I liked. I unwrapped the gold bunch (see photo on top) and added those in throughout the wreath. The trick here is lightweight floral wire. Once I figured out where I wanted to put everything, I secured it with the wire.

Next, I took the wooden letter and started wrapping it with yarn. I always hot glue the yarn first so it doesn’t unravel on you.

And honestly….. that is about it. So incredibly simple but I love it!!!

It probably took me about a hour and really was inexpensive to make. The wreath itself is only $6 and all of the floral items I picked up were 60% off!
