Hanging the Stockings

We have a wooden mantle but I didn't want to put any nails in it to hang the stockings.  I purchased these 3M hangers that stick onto the wood and when you want to remove them there is a way to stretch the sticky stuff to release it.  Should not make any marks on the mantle.

I know you can purchase these heavy stocking holders but didn't want to spend that much plus I didn't want to take up the entire top of the mantle with 10 of these holders.

 Here is what it looks without the stocking hanging on it and the next photo shows my stocking hanging.  The 3M hangers are rated for holding up to 3 pounds so will need to make sure I don't get too heavy of stuff in them.

I've used these before and they work well. I find they work best if you don't hang anything on the hook for about 24 hours...

Brilliant idea. I may go mad and actually get our stocking out this year!
