Some decking of the halls has been happening over at the TerKeurst’s home. Sometimes this is a stressful time with my friend the floral wire.
I’m not a very crafty person. But, I have been known to wield a trick or two with said wire.
While I like the floral wire for some things, hanging Christmas decor is not one of them.
Then this weekend, I found a new decorating BFF.
Hello “Garland Grabber.” I heart you very much.
This is the mantle garland grabber.
In less than ten minutes, it allowed me (ME?!?) to do this.
Well, it turns out that the mantle garland grabber has a cousin!
This is the banister garland grabber. There was no muss. No fuss. No scratching of my banister. No stress. No wondering why in the world I put myself through this.
I just snapped this plastic garland grabber to my banister and hung my greenery.
Then I stuck in some extra goodies like berries and feathers. Love me some feathers. Seriously, they just make things look so swanky and fun.
So, last weekend, guess who I met? I met the inventor of the garland grabber. I know!
He’s a young guy whose mom quipped one day, “You could make a fortune if you could help women figure out a way to hang their Christmas decorations without floral wire.”
So, he did. He went to Home Depot, bought some plexiglass, and some kind of heater-cutter thingy and invented this product.
Eventually, he got on the QVC. THE QVC!!!
And I have a suspicion, his mama was right about him making that fortune.
I love stories like that.
And no, I’m not getting a dime to post this. I didn’t even score any free product.
But I like this product so much, I decided to buy some extra banister clips and give them away during this Thanksgiving weekend.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below about your favorite Christmas tradition.
I can’t wait to read all about your special ways to celebrate!
I’ll leave this up through this weekend as I take a break to eat lots of yummies and do some thankful reflecting.
Then next week, I’ll post the winner of this give away and…
I have such a fun surprise to share with you.
Seriously, seriously fun.
But I can’t share it yet.
However, a recent commenter spilled the beans in yesterday’s post, if you are in the mood to do a little investigation.
Happy Thanksgiving y’all!
