Creating an alternative Wall Christmas tree can be a fun idea, but also a creative way to get the whole family involved. One of the beauties of this tree is, that it can be undone without damaging, drilling holes or sticking anything that leaves marks on your wall. All this thanks to Command’s ingenious products.
Command products have a very strong adhesive that can be removed with no hassle if you use it on any non-glossy surfaces including glass, tiles as well as wood and painted walls. So you can create your Christmas tree on your window, above your fireplace or wherever you feel like around your home.
A little bit more about my tree.
So, I had a really nice long walk in the park from work thinking about how I am going to create my Christmas Tree this year. Last year, I used tape and Fuji film install prints which you can read all about in my Unconventional Christmas tree post here. Also, I have previously created advent calendars like this one and another one here. I think using wood, was my favourite option because it is cheap (free even because you can pick up tree branches anywhere!) plus Command products are inexpensive, readily available and blend into your decorating. Then all you’ll need is a piece of string, decorations and Fairy lights which you will definitely have from last year so total cost of the tree will be far cheaper than any high street store typical plastic tree (which is super non-environment friendly by the way!)
Here are the step by step instructions to create this look:
1. Collect tree branches from around your house, forest or park (please don’t cut off trees!)
2. Gather Fairy lights, decorations and string.
3. Buy products like Command Small Brushed Nickel Metal Hook from 3M with a strong holding power perfect for adding a decorative touch to the top of the tree as well as Command Clear Decorating Clips and Mini Hooks from 3M. (these will hold the fairy lights.
4. Start with placing your wood branches from small on top to bigger on the bottom.
Attach the wood together with a piece of string.
5. Start hanging your decorations on your Christmas tree. Any you like, just make sure these are not too heavy.
6. Prepare your wall to attach the tree, measure the overall height of your tree and place a Metal hook in the desired position. wait an hour before hanging the tree onto the top hook to let the adhesive bond
7. Use Decorating clips now to create the shape of your tree ( these will be underneath your tree). I will advise using fairly lights with a battery operated button so you can switch on and off when needed, and hide it behind the tree rather having any cables hanging around.
8. Attach your fairy lights on your decorating clips.
9. Once you are happy with your shape, hang your previously created Christmas tree and if needed easily change the location of your clips so all of the fairy lights are located behind your tree.
10. Hide your battery behind the tree and you are done.
Creating a Christmas tree like that is fun and it will definitely bring a joy to your home. It will look trendy yet the soft lights of your fairy tree will bring the festive mood to your space.
