Christmas decorations are becoming increasingly common, but many have come with added challenges.

“We wanted to do something that could really capture that experience.”
“It’s a big part of my holiday tradition, so I wanted to make a piece that would look a little bit like it would look in my own living room,” said Purdy.
“There’s not a lot going on, and the decorating is really minimal.”
The wall decoring supplies store opened its doors on December 19, 2017 in the small New Zealand town of Waikato, with the goal of creating something that would make people happy.
“I’ve been doing wall decoration for years, and I really enjoy it,” said owner Peter D’Angelo.
“It’s so much fun.
It’s a lot like being at a Christmas party.”
He added that when it comes to creating a custom wall decor in New Zealand, “it really comes down to a lot more than just a single piece of wood.”
Purdy said that the custom wall decoration was “not something that I really go for” when it came to purchasing custom Christmas wall decorations, but added that he has been a “realist” when buying them.””
That’s pretty much it.”
Purdy said that the custom wall decoration was “not something that I really go for” when it came to purchasing custom Christmas wall decorations, but added that he has been a “realist” when buying them.
“The way I look at it, the main thing you have to be thinking about is ‘What’s my budget going to be?'” he said, before adding that he prefers buying something that “fits the space.”
“For me, it’s a pretty basic piece of wall decor that will look good on any wall,” he explained.
“You can use whatever decorating techniques you like, and they can look great for a small home or a wedding or for an event, too.”
Pricing on The Wall Wall Art’s custom wall decorations can be as simple as $150, and include all of the traditional Christmas decor that Purdy has created over the years.
“If you go into my shop, you can see that there are a lot options,” said D’angelo.
“If you’re looking for something more elaborate or more expensive, there’s more options.”
The Wall Art Shop will also be able to provide wall decoration for a wedding, which will be a cheaper option than buying it individually, but still the most affordable option for most families, Purdy said.
He said that he does believe that “the idea that Christmas is the time to go out and buy stuff is a myth,” and that there is always a good time to purchase an extra wall decoration if the weather is nice.
“There are times where the weather gets cold, and you don’t want to spend the money,” he added.
“But for Christmas, I feel that there’s always the right time.”
