August Make & Take {Stocking Holders}

So it’s probably about time that I share my August Make & take. I know. AUGUST! So I’m running a little behind! I had decided to do a “Christmas” craft a bit early because let’s face it, once December rolls around life gets a little crazy!!! So here’s my re-cap from my Stocking Holders Make & Take….
Check out all this cut wood for the class! All I have to say is that my husband is awesome and he has mad wood cutting skills!!!
Look at all the beautiful ladies crafting away!!!
Look at all the different looks and ideas that everyone had!!! Look at all those happy crafters!!!
You weren’t able to attend but you want to make some for yourself??? Here are the steps we did….
1) Cut some 2×4’s into two 5 1/2in pieces.
2) Paint the blocks any color that matches your holiday decor.
3) Decoupage scrapbook paper onto your blocks.
4) Attach the blocks to each other, either by gluing or you can screw them together.
5) Add a white hook to the front of the holder (I pre-drilled a small hole in the block to make it easier to add).
6) Add a letter to the front. I choose to do the first initial of each of our family members. You can use vinyl, cardstock, wood or chipboard.
I am loving my new stocking holders and I can’t wait to put them up on my Christmas mantel!!!
I think all the ladies had a great time and everyone’s stocking holders turned out so cute!
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
