Today, I’m sharing a large family tip of my own involving…
Years ago, we hung our then-small family’s stockings from a brass NOEL sign I had purchased through Home Interiors. When the load of stockings began to pull down the sign, I decided to move the stockings to the wooden (also Home Interiors) quilt rack/shelf that held our Willow Tree figurines. However, in our new home, we had no wall space for the shelf and I wondered what I might be able to do with our stockings this year.
It’s a stocking tree! However, this particular stocking tree is $169 and only holds 6 stockings. NOT going to work.
Well, my bright idea was to hit up my welder-father-in-law and beg one of these custom made. Great idea, except for the fact that he retired from teaching welding last year and no longer has access to any welding equipment. But, me putting the bug in his ear about what I was wanting sent him dumpster diving and he brought me back this instead…
I love it! It’s just a simple coat rack/hall tree that he found sitting on the side of the road. He repaired it and we are using it to hang all the stockings. It’s such a fun conversational piece and there are plenty of hooks to grow on! ;)
Now, it’s your turn! Your link doesn’t have to be about stockings! And you don’t even need to have a large family!
