Displaying Christmas stockings

This year we will have 26 people at our family Christmas celebration and we have run out of mantle and floor space for stockings. Does anyone have a large family and any unique ideas for displaying Christmas stockings? Thanks.

We have this problem every year in my house. We line the walls with them -- good old fashioned heavy thumbtacks. Sure, it looks "tacky". But it never fails to draw out conversation!

I would look at Michael's or any craft store for something. Maybe you could buy 3 pieces of wood make like something similiar to an H something like this
I-----------------I and add some decorative premade snowflakes on it, maybe a painted wood santa, angel, tree etc. You could use garland, paint the wood/holder itself too...I am sure at your local hardware store you could get some S hooks to hang these. Of course be sure to measure the wood for it's length (not sure how many you plan to hang) as well as for the heighth. Hope this idea helps. Good luck!

we usually hang ours on the tv stand but this year we won't be doing that, so this year i think we'll be hanging them by the bedroom doors.

You could also try hanging them around a doorway, from a shelf in your living room or get another tree and hang the stockings on it.

We always put our stockings on the floor outside our bedrooms.

stocking

My husband built me a shelf for all my angels I collect & I hang the stockings on that, plus we have a half wall in our living room that i have the rest of them hanging on. We have ours plus I do my mom's, my youngest sister & a little boy I babysit. I like the idea of hanging them from the curtain rods too, that is a great idea.

If you can hang them on the end of the beds, just pin them to a mattress or buy nice holders and hang them around a table/sideboard or even a piano if you've got one & it would work
