DIY Framed christmas decorations

You may remember that I previously discussed the new trend for framed Christmas messages as part of festive decorations and I have finally given in and recreated this look for myself in my home. There are loads of printable artworks available via Etsy or even given away for free on blogs – just take a quick look on Pinterest and you’ll find something you like. There’s a massive variety of styles, quotes and colours available so there will be something that matches your festive theme. I love the chalkboard look so I’ve used free Christmas printables from lovely interiors blogs The Shabby Creek Cottage and The Cottage Market. I printed these images A4 size and used some old white frames I already had to hang them in.

Recently I got a new tool for precisely this job. It’s a Hardwall Takker and it allows me to hang my Christmas frames wherever I want by just winding the handle. I no longer have to get out the drill (or hubby for that matter!) when I want to hang a photo, I was impressed by how easy it was to use the Takker to hang my new festive prints exactly where I wanted them. I was drilling into the chimney breast wall, which is usually really hard to drill into, but with the Hardwall Takker I could easily manually drill into any wall surface, even exterior walls – so my next project is hanging some fairy lights outside! I’ll tell you one other thing I was impressed with – the tool collects all the dust where it is drilling, so I didn’t even have to move my sofa to avoid getting mess all over it because all the plaster dust was contained within the tool and I could tip it straight into the bin.

The Takker came with pins that are pushed into the wall, without any need for plugs or screws and I could hang my pictures straight on them, although the tool set comes with a selection of hooks and hangers. I also got the Takker because I thought it would be a fantastic way of hanging my Christmas decorations in my living room. I wanted to recreate a Buddy The Elf white decorations scene so I needed to tack up strands of decorations, garlands and paper chains, and this tool made it super-easy to do so! Here’s how my festive DIY session turned out – I’m really happy with it 🙂
