When I made mine and Nolan’s stockings four years ago, we spent a lot of time picking out the perfect stocking hooks. We found a cute set of two at Target that were a good balance of both our tastes.
We knew that we’d have a bit of a dilemma when we added children to our family. So, this past weekend, we headed out to Target (our options are limited in our town) in search of the perfect hook for Jace. It seemed like they were all too shiny, too tacky, too big or too small. But then I noticed the plain hooks with nothing on top (which come two to a pack). We looked around, and I happened upon a cute decorative ball bell in oil rubbed bronze. It was a little different than what we already have, but similar enough to look good.
I used a drop of Gorilla Glue in the center of the holder, and a make-shift clamp (a pedestal and teapot salt shaker)…
…and I had the perfect stocking hook for Jace!
