Sometimes hanging Christmas ornaments isn’t as easy as it looks, especially if you have something new to add your holiday décor this year. Fortunately, there are some tips and tricks that can not only help you tackle those hard-to-reach areas, but also secure your ornaments and make for an easier break-down and storage after the holiday season is done.
Curtain Rods – If you like to hang greenery above your windows or door frames, you may not have a great way to get your decorations to stay in place without creating holes in the drywall. One way to circumvent this is to use a curtain rod with a tension spring in the door or window frame and wrap the garland around the rod for an easy DIY fix. You can also easily hang ornaments and other decorations using thin wire.
A Hidden Hook – Hanging a beautiful wreath on the door shouldn’t be overshadowed by the hook it sits on. You can circumnavigate this setup by adding a hook to the opposite site of the door and using decorative ribbon to hook the wreath up and over. Then the hook stays hidden, and the wreath can do all the talking.
Repurpose the Coat Rack – Do you want to hang stockings, Christmas ornaments, or other decorative features on the wall? You can easily repurpose a wall rack to establish your holiday spirit at any entryway or in a prominent area of the living space. This DIY fix is inexpensive and effective.
Utilizing Cord Wraps – If you have a stash of cord wraps, like gear ties, that you use to keep your electronic cords neat and tidy, they can also be a great tool when you need to keep your garland on the bannister. Gear ties and other electronic cord keepers often come in different colors, so you can match them to your Christmas ornaments for subtle success.
