Making Merry with Holiday Decor!

5 Fun Holiday Decorating Ideas!

Do you love to decorate for the holidays as much as we do? When your home is all decked out in it’s festive finery, it has such a welcoming and happy feel! It is so much fun putting out your favorite holiday keepsakes, and adding a few new ones to the tradition each year. Here is a list of our top 5 holiday decorating ideas for 2012!

1. Set the mood for festive with twinkling lights! Like the photo above, where strings of mini lights are draped over a curtain rod behind a sheer curtain, sparkling lights add a magical touch! Nothing changes the mood of a room quicker than the lighting. Check out our chandeliers for another mesmerizing lighting accessory with shimmer shine! Choose from Posh or Icicles, both add a glitzy focal point with tiers of glimmery silver metallics. These spellbinding chandeliers will reflect light and can be equipped with their own bulb and cord set in any color you wish!

2. DIY Advent Calendars for hands-on fun! Advent calendars are a meaningful way to count the days leading up to the holidays, marking each special day of a holiday season with a symbolic activity. Kids especially love these calendars because the excitement builds each day! There are so many variations on this tradition, why not make your own? A Menorah where you add a flame to a new candle each day of Hanukkah, or a Christmas tree where you add an ornament for each day of December with the star at the top marking Christmas eve are 2 of our favorite ideas! WallPops unique peel and stick material is perfect for making your own advent calendar or Menorah this year! Check out our creation below! We used the Ice blox to cut out the shape, so it shines with a mirror silver finish.

3. Go all out in holiday colors with removable wall art! For a dramatic splash of color in instants, WallPops dots, blox, and stripes can totally transform a room with holiday theme colors.Blue and white, red and green, silver nixon and blue with shimmering mylar accents are a few of our favorites for festive wall decor! Make a guest room feel extra special by adding a gleeful detail to the walls, or polish up an entry way, bathroom or hall with jolly wall art for the season!

4. Display your Holiday Greeting Cards with Splendor! We love these ideas from Apartment Therapy on creative ways to display your holiday cards! One of the most exciting things about the holidays is coming home to find greeting cards from family and friends in the mail! Knowing how much time and love you put into picking out the cards to be sent to your list, isn’t it wonderful to open each one that you receive? Why not make your seasons greetings into part of your decor? To reduce clutter and put your cards on display, use doors, mirrors, windows, or wall space to display your special cards! We especially like the ideas below, one of which uses a ribbon tacked to a door, the other which uses WallPops as a DIY holly wreath to hold cards.

  

5. Make your list and check it twice! Santa’s List day is Sunday December 4th. While this is a silly holiday, it is also a cute reminder of nostalgic childhood hopes. Just like Ralph in A Christmas Story, we all have something that we are keeping our fingers crossed to discover under the wrapping paper this year. Making a wish list for the holidays, or having your kids make one, is fun! Even if you are way beyond a wish list of gifts, the holidays tend to find us making all kinds of lists, like shopping lists for holiday parties and presents, dinner menus, to-do’s and errands, important dates for all of those celebrations, the list of lists goes on and on! A dry-erase message board in a prominent location, like the kitchen, can provide the perfect visual reference for you this holiday season. Not only can they tie in with festive holiday decor, they also make perfect gifts for anybody on your list! Pictured below are our picks for this year! Let the holiday count down begin!

Paint a Filing Cabinet Fabulous & Finish it With WallPops!

Do you have a frumpy old filing cabinet at home? Most of us need our filing cabinets for extra storage and to keep our documents organized. However, they do not always make for an appealing room accent. Have you thought about painting a filing cabinet, or, better yet, using wall decals to spruce it up? We have!

However, there is no reason to settle for the industrial-blah look of a typical file cabinet! Paint a cabinet and sass it up with WallPops! This DIY finling cabinet project was simple and came out gorgeous! We used the WallPops by Jonathan Adler Carnaby Stripes and a nautical blue spray paint.

Create a salon wall with WallPops frame wall decals by Jonathan Adler

This is your life! Surrounding yourself with photos of your favorite imagery, family and friends, including pets, and of course photos of you giving your best face, is virtually guaranteed to make you happy. Life is beautiful! Sadly, one of the tragic, unintended consequences of technology today is that too many of our precious pictures live only on our iphones, computer screens, and on Facebook. In these virtual realms, our lives are buried in files, folders, and timelines, nestled among our desktop icons and targeted ads. It’s time to flaunt it! Let it all hang out. Smile like you mean it. You are beautiful, your kids are adorable and you are a pretty amazing amateur photographer. That photo you took on your last vacation? You know the one, it’s all artistic and the light is just right? And the one of your Mom from forever ago, looking so young and skinny and fashionable, the one that is probably wallowing in a desk drawer somewhere? Put them on the wall for everyone to see! Not only do your pictures make great decor impact, they also lift  your spirits!

WallPops has a very vogue solution to this modern mire. Peel and stick wall frame decals are the perfect way to showcase your sketches, portraits, and snapshots. Cover your whole wall with pictures and never lift a hammer! For a classic black and white photo frame gallery, check out these frames by Jonathan Adler, enhanced with a silver mylar shimmer. For an absolutely adorable idea for a photo gallery in a child’s room or nursery, It’s a Jungle in Here and Forget me Not create darling frames on the wall. You can easily frame your kids art in these frames, too, encouraging a sense of pride and accomplishment for your child. For more of a boutique look, there are 6 different types of European Frame Kits on the site, from vintage to museum painting style frames. Or, for a curvy French couture salon wall, Jonathan Adler has a sassy set of colored enamel frames, sure to display your images with flair.

Happy Easter! Fun DIY Easter Crafts with WallPops!

DIY Easter Egg Tree with WallPops peel and stick wall decals

Easter eggs are a tradition not to be missed! From Easter egg hunts, to Easter Egg trees and chocolate Easter Eggs, there is a widespread symbolic connection between pretty eggs and Springtime fun. Even the White House has an annual Easter Egg party on their lawn! This year, we have an egg-cellent collection of Easter Egg Design ideas, all made with WallPops! Did you know that WallPops can easily be cut to any shape and size? They are perfect for DIY crafts. These Easter eggs are all peel and stick so you can arrange and re-arrange them on any smooth flat surface from walls and furniture, to appliances like the fridge! There are no messy dyes to stain your fingers and clothes, and there is no boiling required : ) Just get creative cutting out egg shapes and polka dots, stripes, flowers… whatever strikes your fancy! We used some of our favorite WallPops pastels, including Oh Pear green, Flirt Pink, and Purple Perk. We also got cutsey and cut out some simple baby chick shapes from Lello Yellow. Check out the album for a sampling of our Easter DIY crafts.

Before and After WallPops Room Makeover

Who doesn’t love a makeover video? Just think of the movies, where the dorky girl (who is always pretty the whole time) gets a music video makeover into a bombshell, a la Katy Perry in TGIF, Brittany Murphy in Clueless, and Sandy in Grease. Well, here is a fun tween makeover video where we used WallPops to totally revamp a 12 year old girls room from cluttered cute to positively posh! We kept the entire project under $100 dollars with some DIY magic!

WallPops are perfect for room makeovers! Not only do WallPops come in the most on-trend designs imaginable, they make a sassy statement for a very nice price, and they are super easy to use and then remove to make way for changing tastes!

We used the Go Wild zebra print blox to create a dramatic feature wall. Animal print has an adventurous and chic appeal that just never seems to go out of style! To compliment this impressive wall art, we painted her current bureau black and added some modern pulls. Changing her furniture from princess white with antique drawer handles to sleek black with contemporary hardware helped to transition the room from sweet little girl to stylish young woman. The black paint ($8.97 for a pint) and 8 new drawer handles (only $1.38 each!) were a low budget way to make a dazzling transformation. The finishing touch was an Icicles Chandelier for $30.99. This shimmering chandelier was the bling cherry on our delicious make over. Cascading tiers of silver hanging from the ceiling gives a glamorous, finished look to the room.

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?!
