Use these quick and easy techniques to elevate store-bought Christmas decorations and create the Christmas mantel decor of your dreams!

red and lime christmas mantel decorationsDecorating for Christmas is one of my most favorite things to do each holiday season! I am fortunate to have two fireplaces and three different Christmas trees to decorate each year, so deciding on which decorating theme and color scheme to use in each area of our home is always a ton of fun!

christmas stocking and decorations I had originally planned on decorating my dining room in a non-traditional color scheme, but as I was out shopping at Walmart the other day, all of these awesome red and green Christmas decorations somehow ended up in my cart and came home with me! Walmart has SO many fun Christmas decorations that you can easily add your own personalized spin to! I also picked up my favorite Command™ Products to help me decorate without causing any damage to my walls or mantel surfaces.

candy cane striped ribbon being place on christmas treeThe very first thing that I always do when decorating for Christmas is to put up my Christmas tree and add cascades of colorful ribbon that help set the tone for the entire holiday decorating scheme. This year, I found this really pretty candy cane striped velvet ribbon at Walmart, and the shiny wire edging convinced me to do a sparkly red and lime green theme for my dining room decor this year.

merry christmas sign in redI also picked up this super cool metal “Merry Christmas” sign, and though I LOVE the font and lettering style, I didn’t love the distressed paint on the edges of the metal.

mod podge and glitter for signI decided to use a little bit of decoupage glue and glitter to cover over the distressing and make things super sparkly instead!

hand demonstrating command small wire hooks When it comes to hanging up holiday decorations, these Command™ Small Wire Hooks are my #1 favorite! They’re perfect for all kinds of holiday decorations (up to .5 lb) because they’re easy peasy to put up (and take down later!), and they hold strong all holiday season long!

hanging merry christmas signI discovered that my metal “Merry Christmas” sign had the tendency to hang a bit crooked and askew when using only the center ring, so I added two additional Command™ Small Wire Hooks to either end of the sign to balance things out – piece of cake!

green faux pine wreathSince the metal sign makeover went so well, I decided to add my own personal (and sparkly!) touch to this basic faux pine wreath that I purchased at Walmart as well.

stringing christmas garland using command clear hooksWhile I had the Command™ Small Wire Hooks out, I quickly realized that they were also the very best solution for hanging both my jumbo pom pom garland AND our stockings! I love that I can hang the hooks from the under-side of the mantel and tie the ends of my garland on to them for a super easy decorating hack!

(Note: we only hang our stockings when they are empty – Santa leaves the filled stockings by the tree on Christmas morning – so they stay well under the weight limit of the Command™ Small Wire Hooks.)
