This Christmas, join the damage-free revolution and deck your halls with style, sparkle and no hassle with Command Products from 3M. Even if you’re a non-DIYer, our range of ingenious hooks and strips will allow you to hang lights, wreaths, garlands and more at the most wonderful time of the year. With help from our team of trusty lifestyle and interior bloggers: Bodie and Fou, Poppy D and Tigerlilly Quinn, we have created a range of simple yet stylish looks to give your home that festive feel and impress your guests this Christmas.

The magical range of strips and hooks from Command brand allows you to decorate your home at Christmas with ease. Unlike suction cups, Command hooks can be used on non-glossy surfaces like painted walls and wood, as well as glass, tiles, gutters and more. The super strong adhesive will stay put all season and won’t leave holes or marks like drawing pins or tack.


Get glowing this Christmas with a fairy light tree, just like this one created by lifestyle blogger, Poppy D.

Once you’ve chosen

your favourite string of fairy lights, all you need to help you hang this alternative Christmas tree are Command Clear Hooks and Command Clear Decorating Clips from 3M.

Depending on the length of your lights, you may need a bigger hook to anchor the top of the tree. Why not try a large or medium Command Clear Hook to hold long lengths of the lights in place - and invisibly too! You can even add other decorations, ornaments or baubles. Or if you want to keep your tree traditional, why not make a light-up star instead? Either way, this light display is the perfect way to decorate a plain wall this Christmas and is bound to get your guests talking. This is also an ideal solution for smaller spaces, or where pets restrict you from having a real tree.


Bring a white Christmas indoors with some stunning simple white and gold décor to celebrate the festivities. Our interiors blogger ambassador, Karine Kong from Bodie and Fou, created this wonderfully simple wall décor.

Just pick a variety of sizes of paper snowflakes, fans, pom-poms or bells to decorate a dining area, stairway or hall. To spruce up a plain wall for the festivities, use Command Clear Hooks to hang your paper party decorations and add some sparkle with a twinkling twig light star like Bodie and Fou. You can also use large balloon letters to create a bold sign and set the party mood – try ‘Noël’, ‘Xmas’ or ‘2018’. To hold the letters in place without drilling any holes or making permanent marks, thread the balloons through a thin piece of string and use Command Clear Decorating Clips or Mini Hooks to hold the string in place at either end.

Or for a slightly different, more subtle look (or simply if you change your mind!), use white block letters to create the sign. Hang each letter individually using Command Picture Hanging Strips which pull cleanly away from the wall when the celebrations are over. To create the perfect party atmosphere, ensure the pom-poms are attached to some string or ribbon and then carefully hang from the ceiling using Command Ceiling Hooks from 3M.


For a more colourful look, try adding garlands or lights to the space and hang them all damage-free using Command Clear Decorating Clips and Command Banner Anchors from 3M.

GREETINGS CARD GALLERY We teamed up with lifestyle blogger, Poppy D, to also find a quirky solution to displaying your Christmas cards this year – a greetings card wall gallery! Save space on the window ledge and fill an empty space on the wall with this festive display. All you’ll need is a selection of cards, some small frames and Command Picture Hanging Strips from 3M. Keep it clean with white frames, or go bold and traditional with red and green. Just remember to hold your frames firmly in place on the wall after sticking the Command Picture Hanging Strips on the back, before removing and leaving to set for one hour. The beauty of the Command strips is that they allow you to easily adjust the position of the frames and when the Christmas season ends, they remove cleanly without leaving any marks on the wall. For a super simple alternative, forget the frames and just use Command Poster Strips from 3M to hang cards from your loved ones directly onto the wall for a personalised, homely display.


If you’re looking to try something a little more crafty that the whole family can get involved with then try this cute idea out for size! We teamed up with our queen of crafts blogger ambassador, Fritha Strickland, author of Tigerlilly Quinn, to create this beautiful alternative advent calendar. Just grab some card in your favourite colours and textures, washi tapes, glitter and paints and get creative designing 24 different boxes, envelopes and jewellery pouches. Choose what you want to fill your advent calendar with next – sweet treats perhaps, make up items or loving quotes and vouchers to share with your family this December. Then arrange them in the shape of a festive Christmas tree, or why not try a star or heart? Hang each box or envelope on the wall using Command Picture Clips and Command Poster Strips from 3M; and at the end of the month you can remove the whole calendar completely hassle and damage-free.

FLYING ANGELS Another of Tigerlilly Quinn’s creations: make these sweet hanging angels with the kids to decorate a window or room corner. Gather wooden pegs and place pins in the top before painting them in your chosen colours – go for pastels like this, or try metallic silver and gold for a shiny touch – and don’t forget their faces! While the pegs are drying, cut out pairs of wings from the card and prepare the clear string for hanging before attaching the wings and tying the string to the pin. To hang your angels hassle-free, using Command Ceiling Hooks, tie a knot in the top of the string and loop over the hook. Just remember to tie the strings at different lengths to complete your display of flying angels.
