This is our second Christmas season in our new home. Last year when I realized we had nowhere to hang stockings, I planned to make something over the summer. Obviously I didn't get a head start on my stocking board project but I finally put it all together last week.
I went to Home Depot and purchased a 72" long piece of wood. This would be a fun project to use an old door or other scrap wood but poor planning forced me to actually go out and purchase something instead. I originally was planning on using stain to add some color to the board but decided at the last minute to use red acrylic that was sitting on a shelf in my office.
I used my Cricut to cut letters while the paint was drying. I'm embarrassed to admit this but I'll be honest...I used Avery shipping label paper for the letters. I forgot that I had used all my white vinyl and didn't want to wait until the next morning to finish the project. The label paper has a sticky back so it was very easy to apply to the board.
I carefully measured and marked where I wanted each stocking hanger on the back of the board. Then I drilled holes for the screws.
