The nights are coming quicker and I can feel winter slowly blowing in! You know what that means… Christmas is right around the corner!! Remember last week when I shared how to register for the DIY Christmas Stocking Pole at this month’s Home Depot DIY Workshop? Well today is the day I get to share my take on the project along with 20+ bloggers! I decided to do a miniature version of the Christmas Stocking Pole, and it’s perfect for holding gift cards.
This is a really quick project and can be customized in so many cute ways! Not only will I be sharing my tutorial, but don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom of the post and check out the other 20+ ways you can make this your own!

DIY Christmas Stocking Pole
To get started you will need to cut your wood first. I cut my 2×2 to 16″ and my 1×6 at 5 1/2″ to make a square. (because the actual width of a 1×6 is 5 1/2″)
Next find the middle of the 1×6 and the 2×2 by drawing a diagonal line from each corner. Where the two lines intersect is the middle. You can measure to confirm. Once you have located the center, predrill a hole in each piece to avoid splitting.
Once the holes are pre drilled you can attach the 1×6 to the 2×2 through the bottom of the 1×6.
Then attach the wooden knob to the top of the 2×2 using super glue. (I did not use the included screw).
Now it’s time to spray paint it. It did take a few coats. If you want to use a spray primer first that will help. Once dry attach the coat hooks. I did end up needing shorter screws for the hooks. Just make sure you are getting the right width so they fit through the holes on the hook. I placed my hooks 2″ from the top of the 2×2.
All that’s left is to hang the cute little mini stockings on your new Miniature DIY Holiday Stocking Pole! : )
