+ This How to Create a Damage Free Holiday Decor post is brought to you by the folks at Command™ Products +
It’s no secret that I love to decorate for Christmas… Most of us do typically.
I start dreaming up my Christmas decor around September and it’s always grand with all kinds of fun elements that typically aren’t possible in nature or would require some home modification. Then I whittle my crazy ideas down a bit and come up with a more feasible plan and typically my Husband will say, “You can’t do that, it would put too many holes in the wall!”
Anyone with me on that?
What is it with men and nail holes in walls?
In years past that would mean that one of us would win… Either I would get to place nails to my hearts content to create the scene that I had envisioned OR… My husband gets his way and I pout for a few days. Neither option wasn’t great in my mind.
That is until I discovered how to have a damage-free Holiday with the Command™ Products!!
How to create DAMAGE-FREE Holiday Decor
I LOVE these little gems!! They have saved my bacon AND my Christmas dreams on countless occasions.
I use them ALL THE TIME when I’m creating fun vignettes around the house. They really come in handy around the holidays. This year, I have been wanting to create a kind of simple Scandinavian feel for Christmas. Simple colors, simple decor.
To me when I think of Scandinavian decor I think of red and white felt ball garlands and I wanted to create a fun little scene in my living room with some garlands. The problem was, the room I wanted to decorate doesn’t have a mantle or anything to hang the garlands from. I initially thought that I could place little nails on the wall and it would do the trick, BUT… I didn’t want to rock my husband’s world.
I turned to my favorite decorating tools, Command Hooks so that I could do a little damage-free holiday decorating …
I even hung our stockings right on the wall and they look great!
I love that you can get Command Hooks that are CLEAR so they don’t distract from what you are trying to create.
Now here’s the deal… I wanted to create my scene with my chalkboard wall, this wall has chalk all over it. Normally that would be an issue with any type of adhesive. All I did was clean a little spot where I wanted to place the hooks with alcohol, place the hooks, wait for an hour and then hang my display.
It’s that simple!
Here’s a little secret… I also used some Command Hooks to hide my cords from the tree and the lights.
I used a couple of hooks on the underside of my buffet to tuck those cords away out of site. LOVE IT!!
Want to know my extra special secret… I even hung my light fixture and wreath with a Command product but that’s a post for another day!
So… How are YOU going to have a damage-free holiday?
