The idea to make wooden house stocking holders was with me for a while now. Originally, I planned to make a paper village, but it would require a Cricut machine. Since I don’t have one yet, I turned to my favorite material to work with - wood.
I think these DIY wooden house stocking holders turned out more than lovely and let me show you how so you could make it yourself too!

STEP BY STEP HOW TO MAKE WOODEN HOUSE STOCKING HOLDER:
- Cut your wood to the desired height. Using a miter saw, cut a “roof” at a 45-degree angle. Boom! 10 minutes and you are done.
- At this point, you can stop and have a bare looking wood (which is also very pretty). I couldn’t leave it bare since it had a greenish color in a couple of places. I also didn’t want to paint it over completely and lose the feeling of the grain. So I painted the houses with somewhat called “whitewash”, where you mix acrylic paint with water in a ratio of 2 to 1 and paint it away. Water thins the paint and it turns into this beautiful finish where you get a touch of white but still sees your wood grain.
- When the paint dries, add a hook with a nail from the package. And it’s ready!
- As an alternative, you can add a plank underneath and attach your wooden house stocking holders to it. That was my original plan, but my miter saw broke and I had to stop the project as it is. I still love the way it looks and it’s more mobile in case I want to use it for something else in the future. Or add an extra one if I need to.
That’s it! Super simple and can be done in less than an hour. You can add DIY stockings to it. Find here how to make these snowy white felt Christmas stockings. If you are more into the rustic feel of Christmas, check out these no-sew Christmas stockings from a few years back.
