    This is such a good Idea could you hang stockings from it?

    Could this work with foam board? I don’t own a saw. You are so creative and handy!

      It would absolutely work with foam board!

    You left out the back panels fro the “Cut” list. I am assuming
    1 Lower Back Panel 11 1/2 x 9 3/16
    1 Upper Back Panel 11 1/2 x 2 13/16

    Correct?
