Who doesn’t love to be festive?! After all, the holidays are the mecca of festivities, giving the warm lively spirit to the word itself. One of the most fabulous and sure ways to make merry is decorating. Being surrounded by fun seasonal colors, shiny glitz, treasured holiday items and magical embellishments lifts spirits! Bedecking your home for the celebration of the season is a joyous journey, one on which we embark each year with renewed delight. The holidays also present a special opportunity for DIY glee! Sure you can buy a box of cookies, but isn’t it more fun to make them yourself? This time of year, we all have an extra twinkle of inspiration! Here are a few visuals of holiday ideas we tried this year!
In this photo, we traced and cut out an iconic Menorah shape that you “light” each day with peel and stick flames. It is a DIY advent Menorah! Fantastic and symbolic for kids, they will love to add a flame each night. We used the WallPops Ice Blox to give our Menorah a shimmer shine!
Here is a quick video of a WallPops craft idea that creates a beautiful space to display your holiday cards! One of our favorite things about the season is opening the mailbox to find greetings of the season from family and friends. However, where to put the jubilee of pictures and cards?! Here is a brilliant and jolly space saver that showcases your holiday hellos with splendor!
WallPops are perhaps the most versatile decorating innovation ever! There are designs perfect for everybody, and they are designed to be arranged to fit any space with unlimited possibilities.

Bows are trending right now!) Just pick a celebratory color or shape and stick it anywhere and everywhere. Pop your world holiday-chic!

Stylish Additions for a Fashionable and Festive Season
Most families have established traditions celebrated every holiday season, whether gathering together to bake cookies, taking the annual family photo for cards or cutting down the tree; such activities make the season meaningful. Why not add to those cherished moments and try something hip this year when it comes to holiday décor? With the following ideas, the upcoming holidays will be every bit as wonderful as in the past but a bit more festive and fashionable.
Merry Metallic: Use red, green, white, blue, gold and silver but make it shine by choosing metallic finishes. Whether lacquered candlesticks, plant holders or picture frames, add chic shine to this year’s decorations. Celebratory Stripes: Stripes have exploded in clothing and home fashions and now can easily be integrated into holiday décor. WallPops is available in peel-and-stick stripes in a rainbow of colors, including many perfect hues for making merry. Try lining the easy-to-apply stripes onto a wall either vertically or horizontally in “Red Hot“ red, “Lucky Clover“ green or “Shh!” navy blue alternating ”Ghost” white or using a combination of colors. For extra shimmer, experiment with the Ice Stripes, a metallic mirrored stripe perfect for winter holidays. Stripes come in a roll at 6.5-inches wide by 16-inches long for approximately $15.99 each, and they can be cut for cute candy cane striping. Integrate the wall colors around the room with other accessories and gather friends and family to hear the “oohs and aahs” resulting from this statement-making addition. Joyful Shimmer: Nothing says the holidays like twinkling lights and luckily, shimmer rarely goes out of style. Go glam with glistening ornaments in silver and gold to twinkle with lights or add sparkle-covered candleholders on mantles and tabletops. Another easy way to add bling that can be used year-round is with a chandelier. For an affordable option, try WallPops Chandeliers available in three different styles including: Posh with five-tiers of mod-shaped silver ovals hanging 33.5-inches; and Icicles with small silver reflective squares dangling 29.5-inches; Conveniently, all are available at approximately $29.99 each so you can save funds for gifts and other holiday costs. In fact, these chandeliers make amazing presents guaranteed to delight with the gift of glamour.

When seasons change, we feel more than just a change in the weather. There is an awareness and an excitement that comes with each season. Fall is a beautiful time of year, the time of harvest and the time for nature to put on a brilliant show of color. Celebrate the Fall and all of her bountiful hues by giving your decor an Autumn make-over. This fun project is a wonderful way to bring those colors into your home.
1. Gather leaves in different shapes and sizes.
2. Trace them on the back of WallPops Blox in autumn colors like Lello Yello, Blackberry, Red Hot and Totally Orange.
3. Cut out the leaf shapes, and include the stem.
4. After you have your leaf shape cut out, peel it off of the backing and stick it to the wall.
Add as many or as few leaves as you wish, in as many colors as you would like for the desired effect. This decor idea looks great from early September all of the way through Thanksgiving.
Enjoy this video for a quick demonstration on how to get this look at home.
