Decking My Back Deck for Christmas

I’m decking my back deck with festive outdoor Christmas decorations so something festive greets my family every time we sashay through the back door.

Why should my front porch have all the holiday fun?

Remember my JOY Christmas mantel?

Well, I liked that marquee sign so much that I had to hop on my sleigh and grab the NOEL sign too.

I must have been living under a rock because I had no idea that Command made outdoor hooks!

So when I finally saw the light, I braved the icy temperatures and headed outside to deck out my deck.

I just wiped down the front of the railing with a wet paper towel, let it dry, added the sticky backing to the  Command™ Brand Outdoor Light Clips, stuck them to the deck railing, waited one hour and then hung the sign.

Do you see that Command™ Brand Outdoor Window Hook holding my wreath?

No, of course you don’t – because it’s clear so you notice the wreath and my Vixen reindeer silhouette – not the hook.

Here’s to decking the halls …

and the decks of the world.

Because why should front porches have all the fun?

  1. I wish someone would share with me the secret to getting those Command things to stick. I’ve tried them repeatedly and have no success.

    1. Debra – I had no problem – the directions say to clean the area first and let it dry (don’t use household cleaners – water or rubbing alcohol). Then stick it on and wait at least one hour before hanging anything. There is also a weight limit for each hook. Hope that helps!

  2. Wow! Those Command hooks are pretty strong! glad I grabbed a bunch from Sam’s the other day! LOVE that NOEL sign of yours! Have a wonderful Christmas Kelly!

  3. Hi Kelly! Love the marquee sign. Was this handmade or bought? If bought, do you mind saying where from? Happy Holidays!!

  4. Hi Kelly,
    My mom’s maiden name is Noel so, I am desperatelly in search of a Noel sign for the holidays.
    Where did you get the Noel sign you put on your porch? I want it for my terrace.
    Merry Christmas!
