If there’s a chill in the air, that means the holidays are coming! Check out this collection of clever hints and tips that will make your holiday decorating faster, easier and more fun!
Wreath Hanging Hack
Typically, we rely on everything from metal wreath holders to staples, nails and even thumbtacks to affix holiday wreaths to our front doors.
Skip those old methods and try a less damaging tactic — removable plastic hooks. Place an upside-down Command hook on the interior side of your door, loop your wreath’s ribbon or some fishing line around the hook and drape it over the front of the door.
Easy Clip Tree Ornaments
The wire hooks that come with Christmas tree ornaments can be hard to use and may scratch the ornaments. Instead of wire hangers, use plastic-coated paper clips to hang your ornaments. The paper clips are stronger and easy to use. Best of all, they won’t scratch, so you can leave them attached when you pack the ornaments away at the end of each season.
Use A Christmas Light Tester To Check Holiday Lights
Zip ties are a simple way to string holiday lights on banisters and fences without marring the railing with nail marks. After the holidays, snip the ties off with scissors.
Easy Outdoor Light Control
The glow of outdoor holiday lights is cheerful, but going out in the cold to plug them in and unplug them is a pain. But if you use an outdoor remote control switch, you can do it from inside your home or car. Just plug the switch into any outdoor outlet and use the small transmitter to control it.
