DIY Holiday Décor Ideas with 3M Command Hooks

Are your halls already decked for the holidays? 

I had the privilege to share some DIY Holiday Décor Ideas as a 3M Resource Person at the Handyman Holiday Fair 2015 which was held last Saturday at the Robinsons Galleria Activity Center. Some mommies came up to me at the end of my segment and told me they really liked the ideas I shared and that they would certainly recreate them in their homes.

That's me sharing some DIY ideas at the Handyman Holiday Fair 2015
which happened at the Robinsons Galleria Activity Center. 

Here are some of those DIY Ideas: 

Holiday wrapping papers could be so pretty I just don’t want to use them but I also don’t want to tuck them away for the rest of the season. So, I tweaked an idea on how to display these pretty wrapping papers that’s only available during this time of the year.

I recommend seven to nine frames for your holiday gallery wall.

Wrapping Paper/s
Greeting Card/s
Picture Frames
Glue Stick
Command Hooks

1.  Cut a piece of the wrapping paper according to the size of the frame.
2.   Place the piece of paper you just cut inside the frame.
3. Get your greeting card and place it inside the frame.
4. Tie a ribbon at the back of the frame.
5. Plan the layout of your frames.
6. Attach Command Hooks on the wall following your layout plan.
7. Leave hooks on the wall for an entire hour.
8. After waiting for an hour, hang the frames.

*Do leave the hooks for an hour or they’re bound to fall off when you hang your frames.

Where to hang it

Trendy as they maybe, a gallery wall is a nice addition to your holiday décor. You could create one in your foyer, living room, dining room, or even along your hallway. At the end of the season, you could take it down by just removing the command hooks.

Here’s a nod to the typography trend – which I might say, I still absolutely love. There’s something about words that light up my insides, apparently. This project is rather simple really. Cardboard letters, a wreath, and Command Picture Hanging Strips are all you need. With this project, you’re only limited by your vocabulary and your budget. Remember, every letter will cost you. I got these two from Papemelrotti.

Left these letters au naturel but you could easily dress them up with wrapping paper, paint, or glitters!
I used this oil-rubbed bronze Command decorative hook for the wreath. 

For the letters, I used these Command Picture Hanging Strips to put them up on the door. 

Cardboard Letters – J and Y
Command Picture Hanging Strips

1. Attach Command Picture Hanging Strips onto the back of the letters J and Y.
2. Hang a Command Hook on your door.
3. Wait for an hour before hanging your wreath.
4. Attach the letters J and Y on each side of the wreath.

Where to hang it
Why not try the front door? This is another way to decorate it. The letters complement the your wreath as much as any greens would.

I call this the Classic 3M Christmas Tree because it is the epitome, at least to me, what you can do with Command hooks. Choose the translucent ones as to make the appear as though magically standing against the wall

Against a dark wall, the classic 3M christmas tree is a statement.

String Lights
Command Decorative Hooks

1. Plot your hooks with the use of a pencil.
2. Attach the Command Decorative Hooks on the marked spots on the wall.
3. Attach the string lights onto the hooks.

Where to hang it
You can hang it absolutely anywhere! All you need is a wall. For small spaces, this could replace – this year, at least – the big green tree in your living room to leave more space for entertaining.


Here's a  puzzle game you and your family can play while waiting for Noche Buena or during holiday parties.

Hang six of these pieces to make the game a wee bit challenging. You could also use a poster or a blown-up photo of Santa Claus or Rudolph  the red-nosed reindeer. 

A pack of Command Hooks come with six hooks, the perfect number of pieces for this puzzle game. 

Wrapping Paper
One-Hole Puncher
Glue Stick
Command Hooks

1. Glue the wrapping paper unto the cartolina.
2. Cut the cartolina into six pieces.
3. Punch a hole through the upper center part of each piece.
4. Attach a ribbon onto each piece.
5. Attach six Command Hooks to a wall or a white board.
6. After an hour, hang one piece on one hook.

Rules of the Game
1. Arrange the six pieces correctly, like how it would look if it’s one whole piece.
2. The fastest person to do it wins the game.

Number of players: 2 or more
