Hey buddies! Today I am revealing you how to make this charming Christmas stocking post. You see, I have a fireplace, however no mantel. Every year I position our stockings in our stair railing, which is adorable too. But when I saw this idea from Jen WoodhouseI needed to construct one! So, I went straight to Lowe’s to get my lumber.
I’m not rather ended up with my decorating, so this Christmas equipping post might have a couple of more decors around the legs. Let me
show you how to build it! Products Used

Do It Yourself Christmas Stocking Post
Step 1- Cut 4 × 4 Post to desired length
I cut my 4 × 4 post at 5 feet. Remember the top will include another 6 to 8 inches.
Action 2- Cut the legs Cut the
2 × 4’s at 13 1/2 inches with one end
beveled at 45 degrees. Suggestion: Cut the bevel end initially on a longer piece, then determine 13 1/2 ″ from the long point, mark and cut directly. < img alt= "Do It Yourself Christmas Stocking Post"width= "332"height= "443"src =" image/svg+xml

Now do that four times Step 3-Cut the feet Cut the 1 × 4 in 4 pieces the width of your 2x4s above. I recommend you measure and cut to width. It ought to be close to 3 1/2 ″ Take a piece of 1 × 4 and mark a line on the 4 × 4 post on all four sides. This helps mark where you will be attaching your 2x4s
later.< img alt ="diy-stocking-holder-markings"width="288"height="

I utilized my nail weapon and protected with 2 ″ brad nails. Action 5- Drill Pocket Holes Using a kreg jig, drill 1-1/2 ″
pocket holes on the 2x4s. Step 6: Attach the legs to the post Attach the legs to the 4 × 4 post using 2-1/2 ″ pocket screws. Line up the 2x4s with the markings you made in the past. And you’re done with the legs! Action 7-Connect the Table Leg to the Top post Drill a pilot hole in the middle of the post top and screw the table leg in. After it was all assembled I used wood glue to secure it to the top of the 4 × 4 post.
Step 8 -Paint and Add Hardware I chose to paint it white, so I can use it as a coat rack during the year. I found these ornamental bellsat Hobby Lobby and connected them to the top.
Here are some photos of the completed Christmas stocking post.
