While Robert took the kiddos for an overnight visit with their grandparents the other day, I got the house all to myself to just sip coffee and deck out their playroom for Christmas as a surprise. (Peace and quiet and decorating and caffeine? How’d I hit this lottery?)

6. Make a wall Christmas tree with garland and string lights using Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clips.

It’s a whimsical, inexpensive alternative if you live in a small apartment or want to add something fun in kids’ rooms. DIY wall Christmas tree with just Command hooks, garland, fairy lights, and shatterproof ornaments
To make a wall Christmas tree:

  • Use a pencil to mark the top of the tree on the wall.
  • Place your Command™ Indoor/Outdoor Light Clips on the wall in the shape of a triangle.
  • Start at the top of your triangle shape and place the end of your garland into the clip.
  • Weave your garland down the triangle into each clip.
  • Repeat the same process as the garland with battery operated fairy lights or plug-in string lights (if you’re near an outlet).
  • Place a star shape of your choice on top of the tree using a Command™ Large Picture Hanging Strip.
  • Hang shatterproof ornaments from your garland.

Done! So stinkin’ cute I could die!

No tools needed, super quick, stays in place, and it’ll all come down without any damage once Christmas is over. You can get more decorating ideas from Command® Products at Walmart here.

I probably don’t want to know how much we spend on hooks and hanging strips because we seriously use them year-round. This room is definitely not minimalist, but what’s the fun in that, anyway?

Olivia absolutely flipped when I surprised her with her glitzy playroom. Regan mainly wanted to eat the fake snow. Life with a toddler. 😉

Do you decorate your kids’ bedrooms or playrooms? Since having these sweet babies, Christmas is always extra magical, so it seems only fitting to add extra magic in their spaces for them to enjoy.

    1. Thanks, Toni! I got it at Michael’s last year. I’m not sure if they still carry it this year though. It’s tinsel garland.

    1. Thank you! It’s actually from Wayfair and I linked it in our playroom post. Just search the blog for ‘playroom reveal’! Hope this helps!

  1. So cute and festive!! I was wondering how you hung your wreath on the mirror in your foyer? It’s in the second photo in your Holiday Housewalk post. I absolutely love the look of it.

  2. I just love, love, love all the color you used! I am so sick of the white out look everyone is using (and I still do my Christmas tree all white!). Color just seems to liven everything up.

    1. Thank you! It’s from Target. It was something like $5 for a pack of 3. Sooo cheap! They have it in the birthday party aisle.

  3. That has to be the sweetest playroom I’ve ever seen! You did such a beautiful job and this is the stuff your girls will remember years from now 🙂 Merry Christmas!
