I mean, I never in a million years would google for a new way to hang stockings. I'd do the same thing I always do and use a bunch of tiny nails. But one of my friends came across a great idea, and when she pinned it she shared it with all of us so I saw it. LOVELY!
The idea - so simple it's genius: use a curtain rod to hang stockings.
Curtain rod - less than $7 at Wallyworld. Add red duct tape for that holiday flair.
