How to create a nice Christmas wall display without damaging your walls

3 Christmas stylings to inspire you

Since you loved so much this article on how to create a gallery wall without drilling into your walls, I have put together three Christmas stylings to decorate your home without (again!) damaging or drilling into your walls.

Christmas styling #1


For this one made in our home in France, I used Command Brand clear hooks (see below) which are great to hang paper balls, garlands or fairy lights.

However, should you wish to hang a Christmas lights curtain like the one I’ve hanged in our lounge here, I suggest you use Command Brand clear medium hooks which will be stronger and more suitable to bear the weight of the lights.

You can get these cool gold letter party balloons from Urban OutfittersNOTHS or from Etsy (I’m loving this Happy New Year balloon) .

I then added a few more plastic hooks on my wall and hung some lovely paper decorations found on Notonthehighstreet.com and in a local shop called Zoé Confetti…. et voilà Christmas styling #1How to create a nice Christmas wall display without damaging your walls

Christmas styling #2


For the second styling, I used pretty much the same set up but went for a more natural look…

I used wooden accessories like the beautiful decorative necklace my mum made for me hanging on the Bertoia chair (I’m selling one here), a knitted shawl and large cardboard letters which I fixed on the wall using Command Brand picture hanging strips.How to create a nice Christmas wall display without damaging your walls

Christmas styling #3


Last but not least, the third one is one I made when I attended Command Brand styling workshop in Berkshire last May and joined a crew of fun & talented UK Bloggers to be a Command Brand Ambassador .

To hang the paper decorations from the ceiling, I used Command Brand ceiling hooks.

I have to admit, this was another major lightbulb moment when I discovered these hooks! I can’t tell you how many times I struggled while styling a shoot at home, to have something dropping from the ceiling into the shot.

I think these decorations hanging from the ceiling really add to the shot and I’m convinced the picture would have had less impact without them, don’t you think!?

  1. I love the last one. Great idea, especially since we’re away over Christmas and can’t have a tree. But this brings Christmas to our home.

  2. Hi there!

    I saw your post on Facebook and thought I’d come check out the post. Lovely ideas and a very helpful tip about the command strips!

    I think I’ll be getting some.

    Xo,

    J’ai une étoile faite de branches semblable à la tienne, avec le même genre de petites lumières. J’ai un genre de petit commutateur avec des piles pour allumer les lumières. Je me demandais si tu en avais un aussi et où tu le caches haha! On ne le voit pas. Ou si tu as des lumières magiques.

    J’aime beaucoup l’idée de suspendre au plafond, j’y ai souvent pensé mais je ne savais pas comment m’y prendre. J’ai deux grosses étoiles en carton que je pensais pendre ainsi, alors bon truc, merci. Et ils sont beaux les gros flocons.

    • Ma guirlande aussi a un fil mais je l’ai photoshoppé pour la photo :-) Avant j’utilisais du scotch pour accrocher des trucs au plafond mais la plupart du temps cela ne tenait pas

        ah ok haha! Je ne peux pas photoshopper dans la vraie vie :) Je le cache derrière des trucs quand elle est sur le plancher ou une tablette mais je ne pourrais pas la mettre sur le mur comme toi alors… Merci!

        • oui mais bon ce n’est pas très grave. J’ai accroché récemment un rideau de lumière et malheureusement il y a une prise moche avec mais une fois allumée on ne fait plus très attention au fil

  4. Thoes command strips and hooks are a game changer! If only there was way to stop the “enthusiastic” toddler from damaging my walls 🙈

  5. Merci beaucoup pour l’idée des petits crochets invisibles … comment ai-je pu vivre sans toutes ces années!

  6. Love all of these tips, both festive and tasteful, a rare combo! Also, loving your hair by the way. x

  7. Ha, yes sorry, of topic I know! I was thinking of getting a chop and you might just have inspired me to take the leap.
