As the Christmas season approaches and just around the corner, you can be sure you have an idea of what you want your home to look like. Decking your house to create a mood is always fun and exciting. It will also show your creativity to outsiders. If you are looking for inspiration, check out this list of the best Christmas ornaments you can decorate your home with.
Don’t settle for just plain red and green ribbons. Go to the square and make your wreaths and garlands stand out more! Choose colors that represent the season and you will see that your decorations will have a more modern feel.
If you have a fireplace, then you will most likely decorate your mantle with socks. This year, why not use small Christmas figurines? Check out some local Christmas street markets for fun, weird figurines. If you have a savings store nearby, you may be lucky enough to find one. Also check the sales in garages and someone can distribute them for free.
Use special gift wrapping
When Christmas Eve came to roll, you would present everything wrapped and placed under the Christmas tree. Give up packaging purchased from the store and make it customized instead. You can design it with your initials in an elegant font. Use wide silk ribbons and tie a bow on each of them. If you are more about DIY and save money, buy kraft paper and decorate it with your drawings. Use red and green yarn to tie a simple bow for each gift.
Stairs for sets
Yes, you heard right. Stairs can be used to display your decorations! Wrap fairy lights and string your photos with family members and friends. ‘
Christmas can be for extravagance. Layered decors on top of each other for a luxurious and rich feeling in your home.
Blankets instead of a tablecloth
Swap tables and use tartan blankets instead. Get checkered drawings or patterns that use Christmas colors. Place them on the table and see how your dining room will look very elegant.
Not everyone has a bar at home, but most people would like a glass of wine from time to time. Invest in a bar cart and buy all the necessary alcoholic beverages you think you and your guests may need this season. Decorate the stroller with garlands of olive leaves and use gold and silver ornaments to give it an extra effect.
Be creative with your Advent calendar
Using mini tins, number them from 1-12. Put a packaged treat in each (make sure they are not food! They can spoil). Hang the tin buckets in your kitchen just below the garland. This hanging Advent calendar is a fun way to celebrate the holidays and also encourages the idea of generosity and giving gifts.
Let your art show
Are you a creative person? Do you like to paint or paint? Present your work and proudly show them in the living room.
Choose another color
If you think red and green are the only colors for Christmas, think again. Get out of your comfort zone and add other rich colors such as purple, royal blue, gold and silver. Creamy or almost white is another popular choice because it combines so well with other colors.
So far, all the decorations on the list are pretty much at the top. You don’t have to go out and choose a minimalist Christmas this year instead. The downside of decorating your home with the most important care is that keeping them away after that will be easy!
