Deeeeck the hall with lots of air plants, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-laaaaa! Did you know that it’s actually Deck the Hall, and not Halls, in the original version? Just a little bit of Christmas carol trivia for you there, from my music nerd past. Anyway, speaking of decking the hall, I put together these fun additions to our holiday decor this year and these geometric wreaths are hanging in our entry, being totally festive. I love the modern geometric touch, especially hanging on those pretty moveable hooks from Command™. Perfect for hanging wreaths or any other holiday goodies! Here’s how you can make some too.
- Command Oil Rubbed Bronze Metal Hooks
- small wood rectangles
- spray paint
- glue gun
- cardboard or scratch paper
- air plants
Make Time: 30 Minutes per Wreath (Plus Drying Time)
Step 1: Lay out your wood rectangles on a piece of cardboard and spray paint in your favorite holiday colors. Leave some unpainted as well. Allow them to dry thoroughly.
Step 2: On your cardboard or scratch paper, draw the outline of the shape you’d like your wreath. We sketched out an equilateral triangle, with each side 12″ long.
Step 3: Start glueing pieces together, using the shape you’ve drawn as a template. Use the glue gun to glue pieces together one by one. I recommend mixing unpainted pieces with painted pieces for a random look. Place some pieces over and some pieces under their neighbors so that the wreath doesn’t warp.
Step 4: Continue tracing the outline you drew until your pieces form an entire wreath.
Step 5: Remove the red side from your Command adhesive strip and press it onto the back of the hook. Clean the wall area where you’ll be mounting your hook.
Step 6: Remove the black side from the adhesive strip and press the hook firmly onto the wall, holding for 10 seconds.
Step 7: Slide the hook up and off, and press the base for 30 seconds. Slide the hook back on and wait for about an hour for the adhesive to full stick before hanging any heavy items on your hook.
Step 8: Grab some air plants and nestle them in among the geometric tiles on your wreaths. You shouldn’t need to glue or affix them in any way — just let the tendrils of the air plants curl around the tiles and they should hold well.
Henry loves seeing these things when we come and go from the house! He calls the air plants “tiny trees.” So this one’s a win-win for grownups and kids! Now go deck that hall! xoxo
