Christmas is 6 weeks away. Yes you read that correctly.
ONLY 6 WEEKS AWAY!
Okay, everyone calm down. Breathe in. Breathe out.
I’m not organised when it comes to Christmas. I do try, but usually am still rushing around until the last minute.
This year, will be different. All of our Christmas decorations, our big beautiful Christmas tree, fairy lights, outdoor light displays, everything Christmas related… is packed away in storage.
While we are living in our small temporary house, we have to keep belongings to a minimum. There is only so much floor space, so we are keeping our Christmas decorating… ahem… small.
This is where 3M comes in. We were sent a huge selection of 3M hooks to help decorate our house and make it feel more… Christmassy.
3M Command Clear Hooks are clean, sleek and unobtrusive in appearance – ensuring the decorations remain the centre of attention
We started with the kids artwork. Their Christmas canvases are now finished and looking super cute. They really did a great job and are very proud of themselves.
We had a lot of hooks to choose from, and decided to use the small hooks which hold 450grams.
Attaching the hooks is very simple. Just remove the blue backing paper and attach the sticky side to the hook. Then remove the black backing paper and attach the hook onto the wall. Hold firmly in place for a few seconds and presto!
Here are the Christmas paintings hanging proudly on the wall above the arm chair. They each measure approximately 30cm x 30cm.
Sam painted the top one and Amelia the bottom one. They wrote their names and the year, so that we can look back in years to come and see how reminisce about painting them, sitting at the kitchen table, with a layer of newspaper over the carpet underneath.
Our wreath for the door is massive, so we bought this little one from the dollar shop. It’s designed to hang on the door knob, but I can just imagine how annoying it would be after a while… jangling and banging every time we turned the door handle.
So, we improvised…
I used the same 450 gram hook and hung it on the door.
It looks so pretty against the white door. A bigger wreath would be lovely, but would get caught up in the screen door, so this is the 2012 version. The 2013 wreath will be huge, on our new door, in our lovely new house.
Now what is Christmas decorating if we don’t include Christmas lights?
I bought these lights from Aldi. They’re battery operated so they’re not limited to being hung near a power point.
The kids and I auditioned them around the house and decided that the railing, up the stairs, was the perfect spot.
We used the new 3M Decorating Clips for these. These clips are absolutely perfect for hanging Christmas lights.
No nails, no blu-tack, no thumb tacks, no pins, no staples, no sticky tape. Discreet with no damage to the walls or surfaces.
3M Command Clear Hooks are the perfect solution for decorating this Christmas.
Available in a range of sizes suitable for different weights – including the Mini, Small and Medium hooks as well as the Utensil and Decorating Clips priced from $6.99 (RRP). The range can be purchased at all leading supermarkets and retail
