DIY Stocking Hangers {A Tutorial}

I haven’t changed my Christmas theme or colors in many years so this was the year!  I made the move to aqua, lime green, white and silvers and I love it! As I work through my bins and get things decorated I continue to discover more things I need to ‘update’. Stocking hangers were one of them. I checked a few places and quickly discovered they cost way more than I want to pay.I found these beautiful bird holders at JoAnne Fabrics at a whopping $29,99 each; multiplied by 4 and we’re talking $120.oo – OUCH.

I decided I needed to make my own.

 I started with plain stocking hangers I found at Walmart for $5.98 a 2 pack.

Step #1: Prime them using Kilz Spray Primer.

Next, I needed something for the top of the hangers. I found these cute birds at Goodwill for $2.99 each, however I didn’t love the colors.

Step #2: Prime the birds with the same primer.

Step #3: Using E6000, glue the birds to the stocking hangers.

Step #4: Spray paint with Rust-Oleum Blossom White spray paint.


Step #5: Immediately after spraying  cover them in glitter.

Total cost for 4 stocking hangers: $24.00
