Yaaay, it's party time!
As I told you in my previous post, the Home Depot is offering this free workshop to build the stocking holder in the picture below next Saturday, November 19th at all of their locations for do-it-youlselfers of all ages and experience levels.
But, this post is about the reveals, yep! Today, twenty-something bloggers are revealing their own take to the same stocking holder project.
You can visit each of the projects by clicking on the links at the end of this post.
For now, let me tell you how this project went for me...
The idea of creating a faux gas lantern stocking holder came from my daughter. I was going another route, but when she told me her idea, I thought it was brilliant!

Eight Christmas Songs can be played
The light, plus the snow blowing, plus the Christmas songs.... I was SOLD!
For the post I removed one from this rail my brother in law gave me. Can you imagine, he was going to get rid of it all. Of course I had to have it. I have something planned for it. ;)
|Ryobi Miter Saw with Laser|
The base of the lamp was traced on a piece of wood and cut out with the Jig Saw.
That wooden circle is the lamp's sitting spot.
Using a drill with a ½" drill bit a hole was done to pass a ½" round dowel. End caps were glued on both sides.
Two hooks (not shown), were attached to the post. Those, plus the dowel are the ones to hold the stockings.
I thought on giving the post a color treatment similar to the one on the lantern, but gas street lamps are usually black. I decided to go the black route, and went and spray painted the post black. Obviously, both finishes clashed. :/
So, I covered the "glass" part (the whole lamp is made out of plastic or a paste material) and painted the rest black.
I also gave the entire post and lantern a lightly spray of silver, trying to mimic a metal finish.
I love the vintage look of gas lanterns, decorated for Christmas I love them even more. I'm so happy to have my very own right here in my living room!
The best part is that my kids love it too! When they first discovered the music, they said: "Oh, cool!"
He is pushing the button to turn on the music or change the song. It has eight Christmas melodies.
Well, I think this is a project that's good for any room in your home!
I created (ha, my husband did it) this video,so you can better see it and hear it for yourself!
