OK, crafty peeps, I figured this was a better place to put this topic than over in the Winter Holidays thread.

We've moved to a new place that has no fireplace, hence no hearth, hence no ready place to hang Christmas stockings.  Do you have suggestions?  (I cannot afford to go out and buy a free-standing mantelpiece just for the look of it, and I do not have woodworking tools or know-how to make my own.)

Thanks.

really boring, but I'd suggest just getting some of those 3-M hook things.  easily removeable and should hold a stocking fine.

Do you have one of those multi-pane windows with the wood strips? You can hang from wood strips.  You could also hang stockings from a window sill, or from the top of a doorway-- if you have a door/opening/arch into your room (room with tree?) you could hang them from there. Back in the old days (or Old Country-- maybe a Befana thing?), kids used to hang stockings by their bed-posts, from dresser drawer handles...

I used to have the same problem.  I'm very happy to now have a mantel from which to hang stockings (not sure how you'd hang them on the hearth, though  Wink )  In my old house, with no mantel, I used a sort of Christmas-themed coatrack.  It's one of the kind that goes flat against the wall and has four or five hooks (still got one to hang keys on).  I'd hang that on the wall above the fireplace and then hang stockings on that.  You could even get a non-Christmas one and leave it up year-round, and just hang regular decorations on it the rest of the year.

Santa can't come down my chimney, either!  I put stockings on my curtain rods.  Growing up, I always  put mine on my bedroom door handle, that way, it was the first thing I got to on Christmas day!

Hmmmm, nifty ideas.

I have also been looking at the wrought-iron chandelier in the dining room as a possible location for stocking hangage.  We will lead Santa a merry chase, just trying to find our sox.

i know its late...but while you are out shopping the sales, you may look into the stocking holders that they make to go on shelves.  you can set them on entertainment centers, book shelves, etc. and they have a little hook on them for stockings. thats what i used Smiley
