Get out your fairy lights and decorative wreaths: Christmas is coming and it’s time to fill your home with twinkly cheer. Command decorating clips and hooks are the holiday helpers you need – they’re almost invisible, hold firmly and are easy to apply. They’re also simple to take down when the festive fun is over and they won’t leave a wall full of hooks and nails behind. Here’s how to create wow-inspiring displays with a little help from Command.
From Noël to New Year’s, Command’s decorating clips and hooks will see you through the party season. There’s nothing more festive than a room full of Christmas lights, and it’s even more magical if you can’t see how they’re held in place. Use Command decorating clips to securely cradle the cords, so your twinkly lights won’t go anywhere.
Here’s another fun idea: hang a string of lights in the shape of a tree. Use the clips to secure the wires in place and create the perfect shape. Even better, as the clips are clear, it will look as though the lights are clinging to the wall all by themselves.
Securing string decorations is also a breeze. Liven up a plain corner by hanging strings of bunting, fairy lights or baubles using Command’s clear hooks. Dig out some tinsel or get the kids to make bunting or paper chains to hang. When Christmas is over, you can even reuse the hooks by hanging your New Year’s decorations in the same spot.
If you don’t have a mantelpiece to hang your stockings on, try stringing some fairy lights or Christmas twine across a corner of a room and secure with Command mini hooks on each wall. Hang trinkets, garlands or your stockings.
Tip: Add a few Command decorating clips if you want the string to hang straight and not sag under the weight of the stockings. Tie your stockings on with festive ribbon or try threading the lights or twine through the stocking tabs.
A wreath on your front door is a joyful way to celebrate the festive season; it also provides a holiday greeting every time you come home. Suspend yours almost invisibly with a clear Command hook. A medium hook will hold up to 900g, which is more than enough to handle a bauble-laden wreath.
If your most treasured decorations are getting lost on an over-full tree, it’s time to branch out. By attaching Command mini hooks to a doorframe or the front of a piece of furniture, you can dangle your decorations – from the kids’ painted macaroni masterpieces or prized porcelain heirlooms – where you can see them.
No space for a tree? Use Command mini hooks to deck the walls instead. Decorating clips allow you to add festive flair and fairy lights to the kids’ rooms, too.
