Stocking Stand

I paid $5.99 for this entire build... that was the lighted garland! All other materials I had leftover from previous projects. We have extended family for Christmas so 13 people/dogs are here each year. I made 14 'hooks' just in case any family are added, and these were old brushed nickel drawer pulls that I replaced on my kitchen cabinets. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and now I can simply store in the attic each year and not have to use command hangers all of over my walls and mantle. This turned out beautifully!

Quick note: I had to drill into the back for the drawer pulls (hooks) screws because the long screws I had in previous installs wouldn't go all the way through. I predrilled the smaller hole for the screws all the way through then countersank the hole with a bit the size of the screwhead so it would disappear into the 2x4 and come out far enough for the knob to attach.
