With the holidays fast approaching and out of town guests stopping by for celebrations with family and friends, you may be looking to make some quick DIY updates to your home! Author and HGTV host, Kelly Edwards joined me recently to dish on the must haves we all need to get our homes ready for company this holiday season!
Candace Rose: How do we get our homes ready for company this holiday season?
Kelly Edwards: “Well, I first want to talk about obviously decorating because that is my all time favorite thing to do, especially around the holidays. I tell everybody that’s into decorating that you certainly need to be equipped with the right tools, and the right things that you need to actually make your life easier.
One of those things that I tell everyone that they need to have on hand when doing holiday decorations is the Command Clear Mini Hooks. These are definitely essential, and I love them because they really can transform your walls and other spaces. For instance, behind me (please see video for details) I made a wreath – super easy – I used eight hooks and I wrapped some boxes. It’s an easy project that anyone can do at home. You hang it with clear hooks and you don’t even see them.
You can hang ornaments, you can hang other festive holiday decorations, you can hang the wreath on the front door, you can do the lights on the outside of the house. What’s perfect is that this actually has a unique stretch release technology. What that means is that it holds things strongly, but it removes them cleanly. Basically, at the end of the season, when you take everything down…it won’t leave behind any damage on your walls or any residue…which is perfect. We all know that when we take down the holiday decorations, it’s the holes that we have to patch. When you use this, you don’t have to do that.”
