    Those w/no fireplace:Where/how do you hang your stockings?

    This is my fireplace last year:


    It's now gone! Yup. We have a window where that once was (and Sat. night I put my tree in front of that window) because, well to make a long story short, handy dandy hubby & my father-in-law and a crew of men tore it out because it was smelly, DRAFTY and uninsulated!

    Anyway, now I'm at a loss as to how or where to hang my hand-knitted Christmas stockings that I worked so hard on last year.

    For those of you without a fireplace, what do you do?
    thanks!

    We just hang ours somewhere decorative because on Christmas morning they are under the tree (so they don't need to be hung anywhere sturdy!) I usually hang them along a window.

    I hang ours from a window sill, too. We live in a basement apartment, so the windows sit about 4 and a half feet off the ground. Perfect height for stockings.

    We used to hang them from the wall next to the arch to our dining room...but now that we've moved I haven't actually thought about it!

    Do you have a banister/staircase? We used to hang ours along the banister, but now I'm in a one story house so that's out, they will probably go under the tree or on the door.

    That's a good idea. I forgot about that! It might be my best bet since my windows tend to go maybe two feet from the floor so they're kind of low to hang stockings from the window sill.

    at my parents house, we hung them on the china cabinet/chiffarobe thing. my mom would stick pushpins in the wood on the sides and hang them that way. we were a four stocking household (including the dog), so it wasn't too crazy. if we didn't put them there, i can't imagine where they would go.

    I made some stocking holders and they are on our entertainment center. Right now they are off to the side (because or they would block the TV)but on Christmas Eve they hang over the front.

    We hang ours from a shelf that has hooks- it seems to work pretty well until the stockings are full.

    We hang ours from nails hammered into the top side of the wide molding over a wide doorway b/t our living room/dining room.
    But I actually ordered some nice stocking hangers from my friend's daughter's school fund raiser catalog. Can't wait to see how those work out!
