Christmas Stockings

Hello friends!  I'm sharing another door panel I bought at our Habitat for Humanity Restore.  We've rented a cabin for Christmas and I wanted a stocking holder for the great-grandchildren.  

I asked my husband to add a block of wood on the back so we could sit it on a shelf and then I added wood door pulls to hang the stockings from.  I painted it and then, using mat medium, adhered some Christmas wrapping paper.  All the embellishments were cut with the Cricut.  The Cricut was given to me by a dear friend, how awesome is that!?  See those tiny white bows on the tags?  So cute!  Made with a fork!  Lots of Youtube videos for those and so simple to make.  Here are the original doors.  You can see the finished smaller one here.
