How to decorate:

  1. Lets start off by wiping down the mantle to remove any unwanted dirt.  Allow area to dry. 
  2. Place your 7ct Command™ Clear Medium Hooks from left to right in equal intervals along the mantle front.
  3. Hang pine garland starting from left to right.  Play with it to give it the right about of draping.  You don’t want it too tight!
  4. Now lets hang  the ornaments!  I like to start with what I consider my pop color and distribute it evenly throughout my garland.  Then hang your neutral colors.  I added blue snowflakes at the end for an extra POP!
  5.  Next use the Command™ Clear Mini Hooks to hang the stockings.  We have five lovely people living in this house so I used all 5 hooks.  Space them out evenly and hang under the mantle.  Hang your stockings!
  6. For the wreath, I highly recommend using the Command™ Medium Designer Hook.  It’s strong and can handle the weight.  Decorate your wreath as you see fit- I used a silver garland and two glittered flowers. 
  7. Give your mantle a little extra romance with some mercury glass candle holders, and you are done!  Light that fire, get some hot cocoa, and enjoy your hard work.

I have always used Command™ Brand hooks in my holiday decorating.  They’re easy-to-use, come off clean, and can handle any decorating task I put them up to.  I often change my mind in the middle of decorating, and the ability to remove hooks without a scratch or hassle really make these my favorite decor item each holiday season.  Make sure you stock up on Command™ Brand hooks at Walmart for all you decorating needs!

    Your mantle is beautiful and I love the blue and silver color scheme! It’s so wintery and pretty! And don’t get me started on that little cutie pie in her matching dress!

    I am super impressed that you removed your TV. That takes a lot of work. I love the wreath, too. I love command hooks and we use them every year. We use the ones that hold up to 25 lbs. Our stockings are heavy!

    We don’t have a mantel but we make a make-shift one to be able to hang the stockings on. I think that this could totally work for that.

    Your mantle is absolutely gorgeous! It’s been years since I’ve had a mantle to decorate but this year we built in a fireplace so I have a mantle…and this definitely gets me inspired!
