For this quick project I used a coffee sack. I chose one with a little green and red on it, but you also could use fabric, an old tablecloth, burlap you have stenciled. I staple gunned it to the wood frame of a garage sale bulletin board (never pass on bulletin boards). I then added some garden fencing to the front, bending it around the edges to secure it.
I curled up every other wire on the bottom for a hook (and yes, this too could hold stocking).
