Get in the festive spirit with Scotch Restickable Tabs


23 November 2011

Christmas is just around the corner and it’s the perfect time to get family and friends together to create some unique home-made decorations for your house or office.

The best thing about home-made decorations is that they are budget friendly and with the new Scotch Restickables Tabs they are now easier than ever to create. 

The double-sided adhesive tabs are easy to use and ideal for sticking up your festive decorations to any surface.

Scotch Restickable Tabs remove cleanly, ensuring you won’t have any marks or mess left on your walls once the festive season is over. And, because the tabs are clear, you can be sure that even the most scrutinising members of your friends and family won’t see them, even on windows and mirrors.

Best of all, when you’ve finished with them you can simply wash them with some soapy water and they’ll be sticky again and as good as new, ready to use in the New Year on your next creative project!

Christmas decorations can prove costly but making your own is a lot cheaper and the whole family can join in making it the perfect activity for some festive family fun!

This Christmas, why not try making the following home-made decorations:

  • Christmas cards

Another budget friendly Christmas decoration that you can use is Christmas cards. Why not create the ultimate personalised Christmas decoration by using all the lovely cards you have received from family and friends?

Using your Scotch Restickable Tabs, stick your beautiful cards in vertical rows on your walls, internal doors or mirrors - safe in the knowledge that they will remove cleanly and easily, without a trace, once you have seen in the New Year.   

Tip: Why not get even more creative by cuttings out Christmas scenes and shapes from the cards and creating a festive arch over focal points such as lights and pictures in the main reception rooms of your home?

  • Christmas window scenes

Turn everyday ordinary plain white paper into beautiful Christmas window scenes. Using a pencil, draw out simple snowflake and snowmen shapes. Then take a pair of scissors and cut them out, being careful not to leave any pencil marks on show.

Using your Scotch Restickable Tabs, stick your festive creations onto the bottom of your window panes. These easy to use tabs are clear so will appear invisible, leaving passers by free to admire your fantastic home-made creations!

Tip: Why not spray some fake snow onto the corners of the window frames to add to the festive feel?  

  • Paper chains

Choose some different festive coloured paper (red and gold works well) and cut the sheets into even strips about 2cm wide. Stick the ends of one of the strips together to create a closed loop.

Take the next strip and put one end through the hole of the first loop and stick the two ends of the second strip together to create your second loop. Continue until you have the size of chain you are happy with.

Then, attach your Scotch Restickable Tabs, to the end of each chain and stick your beautiful home-made decorations around the house. 

Tip: Why not try sticking them across door lintels, picture frames, mirrors and fireplaces to create a fantastically festive feeling?
