DIY Christmas Stocking Holder Village Inspired


It’s last week of November and finally we already put up our Christmas tree this weekend. I’m sharing today our first decoration that  I did for Christmas. It’s a DIY Christmas stocking holder village inspired. It’s made of scrap woods that my husband and I found in a construction site. I’m not a pro in woodworking by the way so I believe that you guys can do this project too! 🙂

I always wanted to get  some house decorative figurines or village Christmas set for house decors but we’re too frugal to buy 😉 But I think they are so pretty to use as decoration for Christmas. Some village sets are made in metals, ceramic etc. and it can be expensive and some are simple and less expensive like what I found here . These decorative houses or villages inspired me to create this wooden Christmas stocking holder; it’s easy and cheap too!


We have some scrap woods in our garage so I used some of the woods and cut into different height using circular saw + cut some wooden blocks for the base.  After that, I sanded them all and start to screw the bottom part. I use hook for each house, I used this one. To finalize the design, I searched online for house decorative style windows and doors to give me some ideas on how the houses will look like. I keep the design simple, I used white paint to create the windows and door.

This is our last year’s set up. My friend’s husband made us a wooden ladder with hooks for the stockings.

I knew that this year, I’d like to place our Christmas tree close to our tall kitchen counter that is next to our living room so I can hang up our stockings. We don’t fireplace or mantle in our house so I thought the tall kitchen island counter can be a good place for stockings.


I hope you enjoy this simple and easy Christmas decoration project.  You can view video process here on my Instagram.
