Just found this. I've been hanging ours (six including the cats and even seven one year) on the piano as above. I do play the piano and like to practice every day. It's simple enough to move the few that hang down to the keys and in front of my music and then hang them back up when I am done. They look really pretty there. I'd like to find another place to hang them but this has been working for several years.

We just moved into a new townhouse with no fireplace and I've been freaking out a bit (13 days until Christmas) regarding Stockings. Midway through reading this I jumped up off of the couch and hung our four stockings on our four window locks right next to the tree. Looks great!!! Thanks for the perfect idea!

I always put mine in the kid's bedrooms. Sometimes I hung them on the bed, sometimes from a knob on a dresser, sometimes I just propped them up. The rule was that they could open the things in their stockings whenever they woke up. But they couldn't open the things under the tree until I was up too. :)

The people with the piano must not play very often . . . just sayin'. I once hung mine above the piano, though, spaced evenly on the wall. I can't remember if I hung anything else up there with them, but I think it looked festive. Not magazine-perfect, but I wanted to throw it out there.
