If you’re looking for last-minute Christmas decorating ideas, New York event planner David Stark has some creative ways to spruce up your home. We talked to the designer and author of The Art of the Party at the Target Holiday House Party where he shared three DIY ideas for holiday decorating, entertaining and gifting (listed below). We were wowed by what he can do with a roll of painters tap! For more of Stark’s decorating ideas, check out our “Design File” Pinterest Board.

And, by the way, Target throws one heck of a holiday party!  See highlights from the evening here:


 

Idea 1: Bookshelf. Organize your objects or your books in the shape of a holiday tree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Idea 2: You can make all the holiday décor you need with a roll of painters tape. You can draw on the wall, write messages like “Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah,” and even draw the mantle you wish you had but don’t. And when you’re done, pull it right off and it’s not going to mess up your wall at all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Idea 3: Use materials that might have been intended for something else. For example, a blanket. Just because it’s called a blanket doesn’t mean you can’t use it as a table cloth. Blankets and sheets make great dining table cloths. Don’t sweat having to run out and find the perfect table cloth for your holiday dinner.
