Hey there, Scott here from www.sawsonskates.com. Today I'm sharing an easy-to-make project. The best part? It was made entirely with scraps laying around my workshop! Scraps of 1x2, 1x3, 1x4, a few screws and paint combine to form these West Elm Inspired Stocking Holders. These not an exact replica of the West Elm "Metal House" stocking holder, they are more of a metal look silhouette.

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
