Sometimes, things that happen by accident turn out to be some of my favorite projects.  My holiday gallery wall is one of those things and I can’t wait to share with you how it turned out and give you some tips and ideas for creating your own!


As you might know, I created a collected gallery wall around my TV in the family room using a mix of photos, signs, pictures, and objects.

TIDBITS & TWINE Collected Gallery Wall


When I was unpacking the Christmas decorations, I came across a holiday print that I had picked up last year at a post-Christmas sale.  I decided to hang it on my gallery wall, removing one of the frames that was already there.  And then a plan was born and my holiday gallery wall came to life!



I didn’t change out the location of any nails so that when Christmas is over, I can easily put the original decor back on the wall.  Instead, I simply removed some items and replaced them with themed images, or in other cases, just updated the existing items!  I bought this cute mirror but decided it was just a bit too small for the space.  To give it a larger presence, I added a big gingham bow to the top for extra visual impact.  {Bow tutorial here.}



Some of the frames I left in place but just updated the image.  A polka-dot gift bag made the perfect accent in this frame!



Gift box lids work well, too!  You can also use holiday scrapbooking paper, tissue paper, Christmas cards, children’s’ artwork, and more!



Two frames were just too cumbersome to change out the photos, so I added a bit of velvet ribbon to better help them tie in with the rest of the newly updated wall.




I added a few other items to the wall, including a string of ornaments along with two silver animal heads.  I owned the reindeer and moose but didn’t have them on the wall, as I only bring them out seasonally.  Once up, I just couldn’t resist adding a little red pom-pom to this Rudolph!



I also added a small cedar garland on top of the TV stand for a little color and fun, accented with a few red glass ornaments.



And I finally put my vintage blocks to good use in the game vignette that sits atop the TV stand…



…with a few added to a mercury glass cloche to give it a festive “Merry” look!



My family room is finally starting to come together, don’t you think?!





I still have lots of decorating to do, though.  Up next is the dining room, followed by the living room, Christmas tree, and my bedroom mantel.  Photos coming soon!
