There isn’t a very long list of products that are made to be extremely useful, multi-purpose items, but there is one brand that definitely comes to mind that has managed to do it while making life simpler. With over 400 owned, active patents in it’s product line, the VELCRO® Brand has created so many great solutions to help keep things organized, that are great for crafty DIY’s like Christmas wreaths and home decor & can be used anywhere from the classroom and office to the hospital or military base.
As a mom of two boys under the age of ten and former preschool teacher, I’ve always kept an eye out for simple ways to get crafty especially when I’m short on time. A lot of my inspiration comes from within magazines and while tuning into DIY/Lifestyle shows and so It comes as no surprise that with her unique sense of style, creativity and need for beautiful and simple solutions to everyday problems, that TV personality (HGTV) Sabrina Soto would be named creative advisor & ambassador for VELCRO® Brand.
To celebrate the partnership between Sabrina Soto and the VELCRO® Brand, fans, bloggers and creatives were invited to a Meet and Greet at their Holiday Hack shop in Soho where the TV star showed off some really great holiday DIY’S that had such “wow” factor but could easily be done without a bunch of fuss or mess. I couldn’t get over the fact that the pillow covers pictured above were used with dinner napkins and attached with VELCRO® Brand products (perfect for people like me who can’t sew more thanb the holes in the knees of my kids jeans) and the pendant lamp was so awesome because it seemed to be a simple take on paper mache projects we’ve seen throughout the years. Amazing right?
Throughout the week visitors were not only treated to holiday decor workshops, but they had the chance to win giveaways, received freebies, took pictures with Santa, and could enjoy complimentary festive gift-wrapping. If you couldn’t make it to the holiday shop, it’s ok because you can download the Hack the Holidays (at bottom left of page) E-book for some gift-giving and decor ideas. You can also stay in the loop by following VELCRO on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates on future events and useful ways to use their products.
