You can find Command hooks that will hold A LOT and then remove them after Christmas! These ones hold 7.5lbs: https://amzn.to/35fbLcv
I’d buy very large bolts and nuts, then hot melt glue deviations to the nuts & the bolt heads.
Thread the stocking on to the blot stem.
At our last house we didn't have a mantle or anywhere to even hang stockings, so I made what is similiar to this porch post. The only difference is I added enough hooks to it (using all 3 sides of the post) until I had enough hooks for every stocking. The best part was that I could set it wherever so it wasn't ever really in the way. Hope that helps!
Take a look here:
I made one with wood. The base is a 1x6 and the hangers are 4x4s cut into houses. The whole thing is really heavy and very sturdy. https://www.semiglossdesign.com/diy-stocking-holder
hometalk has some ideas!
Hi Tammi: You can get a board as long as you want it to be, and that's about 2" wide and maybe 1/2" thick, paint it to match whatever you are going to attach it to, drill enough holes in it to match the number of socks you have and then insert one curve of an S hook into the hole and the sock on the other end for as many socks as you have. Most home improvement stores sell everything you need:) Good luck
