The holiday season has begun and there’s nothing better than starting the Christmas decoration to get in the mood. The expectation for the festivities, assembling the tree, and putting up the decorations are very special moments for everyone. It’s a time of closeness, warmth and happiness, which brings families and friends together to celebrate life.
But, when it’s time to think about Christmas decorations, a feeling of worry may arise: how to make your house look remarkable, with all the magic that Christmas inspires us, without overdoing it? To avoid this dilemma, here are some practical and creative tips that will help you create the perfect Christmas decoration for your home.
Create a new Christmas Tree
The decorated tree is a great symbol of Christmas; there’s no doubt about it. But escaping from the traditional models, and creating other styles, can be the great difference of a personalised Christmas. A great idea to have a creative tree, even if you live in a small house, is to create your own Christmas tree on the living room wall.
To create this beautiful decoration, just assemble the silhouette of the pine tree using string, dry branches or whatever your imagination allows. Then, decorate it with some Christmas objects – balls, pine cones, gifts and photos of family and friends, not forgetting the fairy lights for the finishing touch.
Create Original Decorations
Besides the Christmas tree, an excellent idea to bring a magical atmosphere to your home is to create different and original decorations for all environments. Invest in details to make every corner shine, making your Christmas more beautiful and personalised.
For example, place a string of fairy lights inside a lantern, wine bottle or glass jar, to create a different and sophisticated effect in your living room. You can finish it off with a red or gold ribbon on the outside, to suit the Christmas mood.
Another suggestion is to personalise the gifts under the tree with coloured papers and ribbons, matching the wrappings to the decoration. You can also place small photos of people on the gifts, as a creative way to identify each souvenir and also intensify the bond between you, your family and your friends.
Symbolically, wreaths bring luck and wealth for the coming year. In decoration, they bring the environment a Christmas atmosphere, offering various designs for the most varied decorative styles.
You can choose a traditional wreath and hang it on the door of your house, as well as other creative designs to decorate any room. How about creating a wreath yourself, using natural ornaments or small decorative objects? You can use dried leaves and flowers, buttons, ribbons and colourful rattles to create a wreath that looks Christmassy.
