At this house we do not have a fireplace, and I struggle every year to find a place to put our stockings. This year I saw a stocking holder that sat on the floor and was available at Ballard Designs. The price was $119! No way was I paying that price. So off I went to create my own. This project took less that 30 minutes to make and cost under $20.
First you need to make a trip to the hardware store and buy some galvanized pipe. This will be in the plumbing section. They sell it in precut sections. For the T shape, I used a 36″ long piece for the leg of the T, and two 8″ pieces for the arms of the T. You will also need two end caps, a T shaped connector and a round support for the bottom.
I choose to use 1/2″ pipe for this project. They also have 3/4″ and bigger. Whatever you choose, make sure all your pieces are the same width. You will also need a piece of wood for the bottom. I had a piece at home. Mine was 10″ by 10″ by 1″. You will need four wood screws to attache the round support base to the wood.
