Have you ever taken down your decorations after a holiday only to be left frustrated with all of the marks and holes left on your walls? Sometimes, the fear of damage to my home keeps me from decking it out as much as I’d like.

Command™ Hooks and Strips make holiday decorating easy to go up and easy to go down when the season is over. There are so many different varieties of hooks, clips, and strips, so I can always find something just right for the project I am working on.

Where to Find Command™ Products

While shopping for new Christmas decor at Walmart, I came across a huge display of Command™ Hooks and Strips right near the check-out area. They had every type of hook or strip you could need for your holiday decor.

When I stopped in a different Walmart on another day, I found them in a different area. There was a large display of Command™ Hooks and Strips located just outside of the Garden center near the Christmas decor. Plus, there was an extra display in their hardware section.

Ways to Use Command™ Products to Make Decorating Easier

There are so many ways to use Command™ Hooks and Strips. Some of them are common, such as hanging a wreath. But there are lots of other ways to use them as well.

I’m telling you, using Command™ products will make your decorating much easier. What’s great is that they don’t require tools (no more hammers and screwdrivers) and they hold strong. Just make sure to check out the labels and purchase your hooks and strips based on your weight limitations and size.

This year, I started my Christmas decorating with the front porch since it’s what makes the first impression when you enter my home.

Front Porch Holiday Decor Set Up

For my porch, I used a Command™ Medium Designer Hook for the front door to hang the wreath that I got from Walmart. I cleaned the window first and then I applied the hook to the glass. It was super easy to get it in place.

Then, I used a Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clip to hang up my Reindeer sign. The sign is made from super light material so the hook had no issue holding the weight. I messed up the first time I hung my sign (it was just too close to the porch light).

Thankfully, the Command™ hooks left my surface damage-free when I removed the old hook and I was able to easily move it over.

Next, I used the Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clip for the garland and lights around my front door. I space the hooks evenly across the top of the door frame. Then, I placed one upside down at the bottom of each side of the doorway to hook the garland into. This keeps it from blowing in the wind.

Family Room Fireplace Faux Mantel & Scroll Sign

Since moving into our house, we have yet to have the time to build our fireplace mantel. I was bummed about not getting it done in time for Christmas because I love the look of a decorated fireplace.

Command™ hooks to the rescue! The Command™ hooks and strips allowed me to create a faux mantle look – it feels just like I have a mantel up. There are even stockings hanging!

For my mantel, I used garland from Walmart that I folded in half for a thicker, more dramatic look. Both Command™ Small Wire Hooks and Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clips were used to hold up the garland.

First, I started by using Command™ Small Wire Hooks across the entire length of the mantel. I placed my garland on the hooks.

Next, I added the Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clips to help hold down some of the flyaway garland pieces. Since I doubled up my garland, it made it a little top-heavy so the Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clips really helped keep it from sagging.

Above the garland is a sign with black letters on kraft paper saying: we wish you a Merry Christmas. There is a swag of greenery and a red and white checkered bow. Next to the red lanterns on the floor are a green and red plaid reindeer, green tree, and two plaid trees. Each stocking has a name hanger in white that say: Dad, Mommy, Carl, Jack.

Above the mantel, I hung a Christmas scroll using a Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clip. Then, I added a small spray to the clip as well.

Merry Planning Wall

To complete my Merry Planning Wall, I used all four of the Command™ products I purchased.

Then, I used Command™ Large Picture Hanging Strips to hang an adorable Santa mailbox. I plan to put stickers and stickers books in the mailbox. The Command™ Large Picture Hanging Strips hold strong enough that they can easily take the weight of the sticker books.

I used Command™ Small Wire Hook to hold up a clipboard with a fun parody on the 12 Days of Christmas for craft lovers.

Next, I used another Command™ Large Picture Hanging Strip to hang a small mason jar to hold pens, markers, etc. in holiday colors. Lastly, I used Command™ Small Wire Hooks to hold my red and green washi tapes for easy access during this holiday planning season.

How to Make your Own Christmas Scroll Sign

If you’d like to make your own Christmas scroll sign using a cutting machine, it’s super easy. You can use a heat press or an iron on a low setting.

  1. Grab a roll of kraft paper (I got mine from Walmart).
  2. Roll it out to your desired size, leave a roll of paper on each end.
  3. Trim the paper.
  4. Measure the area you have for your print.
  5. Cut your design (you can download my design free at the end of this post). #shop This image shows a pink Silhouette Cameo cutting black vinyl on a cutting mat with a laptop open and a screen opened to a mirrored design saying We wish you a and two trees.
  6. Weed your design.
  7. Set your heat press to 275 degrees Fahrenheit or set your iron on the lowest setting (no steam setting).
  8. Place your vinyl on the kraft paper. #shop This image shows kraft paper with black letters in cursive that say merry ristmas (the Ch are not shown in Christmas).
  9. Press for 10-15 seconds.
  10. Make sure to press the entire area. For my project, it was so large I had to press it in chunks.#shop This image shows an open heat press set up with a teflon sheet to press kraft paper with black words.#shop This image shows a heat press pressing kraft paper with black words.
  11. Remove the transfer paper.
  12. Place a bead of hot glue under each roll on each side. #shop This image shows a bead of hot glue along kraft paper with one end rolled.
  13. Gently press the roll down on the hot glue to secure it and hold it until it cools.
  14. Use twine (I got mine from Walmart) and string through the top roll.
  15. Use a Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clip or Command™ Small Wire Hooks to hang the sign. (You can see the Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clips here )#shop This image shows twine hanging a kraft paper sign from a Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clip.#shop This image shows a brick fireplace surround.
