A Coat Rack or Stocking Holder DIY

I found these cute reindeer hooks at World Market.  They came in white or red.  I know many of you are done with Christmas, but I just couldn't get everything posted!  Plus, if you decide to make one of these racks, you might find the hooks on clearance.  I love the after Christmas sales!
 I took another board from my stash of old boards found in Charleston, SC, measured the spots to drill and added the hooks.
I haven't decided where I will use this.  I might figure out a way to attach it to my fireplace mantel and use it next year to hold my stockings.
 These hooks were a couple of bucks each.  I bought the old boards in bulk, so this one is probably less than a $1. 
 
The little felt red bird was made by my mom.  I have six.  I am sharing it, because I think these would be cute to remake...so many of you are super talented in the felt/craft area.  I think it is funny that the clothespins she used were orange!  She used to clip this to the limbs of our tree.  I love to see the little things around my house that remind me of her...she was a sweet, sweet mom.
 I perched the board on the molding in my mudroom.  I am not sure where I want to drill holes for it...maybe my shed until next year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Those hooks are darling. Love them mixed with the vintage molding piece. I would leave this out all year.

Those hooks are so cute! Love the board and the stockings too. I'll have to get out to World Market and see if any are left.
Very sweet bird :)
I just saw the pendant light you made for the tree house. ADORABLE! I have almost the same thing in my living room. EXACT same bulb...I love those vintage bulbs. Mine is on a dimmer and is so pretty when it's just barely on.

Hello friend! I'm getting all caught up after being gone last week and have so enjoyed reading your last few posts. :-) The stocking hooks are so fantastic and that deer head is incredible! Loved seeing your beautiful, serene bathroom too and it is so fun to see more of your lovely home. Thanks for your sweet comments while we were gone!

Love that! That was such a clever idea. I love World Market. I bet those hooks are part of their after Christmas sale going on right now too.

Found this post of yours while I was searching for more "stocking board" inspirations on Google. What darling hooks! Those plus the white-washed, weathered board is perfect together! I too echo the remark of leaving it out all year! The white on white makes it chic & current enough. There's nothing cliche "Christmas" about it to warrant storing it most of the year only to enjoy it for a month & a half. Hope you kept it out! Thanks for the beauty. I'm going to have to pin this for the next time I make a board. Thanks again!
