This festive season, why not deck your halls with style and sparkle and, better still… do it without damage? Meet your new favourite decorating must-haves, Command Hooks and Strips from 3M. If you wouldn’t consider yourself a decorating expert, or even a DIYer, the Command Brand’s range of innovative hooks and strips from 3M will help you to hang your favourite fairy lights, wreaths and garlands, and get creative, without tools or fear of damage.
With help from our super-creative lifestyle and interior bloggers: Don’t Cramp my Style and Bodie and Fou*, this year we have created a range of stylish yet simple looks to add to our Christmas projects gallery, to give your home that added festive touch which is sure to turn the heads of your guests over Christmas period.
The ingenious range of Command hooks and strips from 3M allow you to get creative and decorate. Forget the toolkit, there’s no hammer or nails needed here – and better still, Command products from 3M can be used on non-glossy surfaces like painted walls and wood as well as glass, tiles and more. The super strong 3M adhesive will stay put all season, but come January 5 they can be removed by stretching the adhesive clean away, without leaving holes or marks like drawing pins or tack.
Christmas Wall Tree
Light up your fireplace this year with a fairy light tree, just like this one created by interior blogger Anna from Don’t Cramp My Style. Once you’ve chosen your wall space, your favourite fairy lights, and some suitable length sticks (Anna found all of these on her walk home from work!), all you need to help you to create this alternative Christmas tree are a selection of Command Clear Decorating Clips and Mini Hooks from 3M. Simply make the outline of your Christmas light design by fixing clear hooks to the wall, weave in the fairy lights and lay your branches in place… All while giving the illusion that the tree is hanging on the wall all by itself.
Depending on the size of your tree you may need a different hook to help anchor the top of the tree. Why not try a Command Small Brushed Nickel Metal Hook from 3M with a strong holding power perfect for adding a decorative touch to the top of the tree.
You can add other decorations like baubles or ornaments to your tree too! Or try your hand at making your own star to clip to the top. The sky really is the limit with this design; it’s an ideal solution for smaller spaces or where pets restrict you from having a real tree and of course, it’s also the perfect way to decorate a plain wall that’s bound to get everyone talking!
Advent Calendar Wall
Get the whole family involved with a contemporary take on an advent calendar wall.
With so many advent options available each year, our interiors blogger ambassador, Karine Kong from Bodie and Fou*, created this wonderful advent calendar – ready to be personalised for even the fussiest of recipients!
All you need to create this festive look is some red ribbon, a selection of small boxes (Karine wrapped matchboxes for this project) and Command Clear Decorating Clips from 3M. You can even mix up the colours to suit your festive scheme, ready for you to enjoy throughout the month. Just remember to tie the ribbons at different lengths to complete your display.
To add something completely different to the look, you could stick lightweight boxes straight on to the wall usingCommand Poster Strips from 3M. Once the festive season is over you can remove the whole calendar completely hassle and damage–free. Until you find another excuse to hang daily treats!
