It’s that wonderful time of the year again.
The time when despite the cold wintry season, everyone and everything is filled with warmth, comfort, happiness, and cheer.
Yes, you guessed it right! Christmas is almost here!
It’s the time when all in the world seems at peace and harmony. From the pristine white snowflakes that twirl and dance gracefully as they fall to the ground, to the young and elderly as they celebrate the season alike, everything all around is bursting with joy and merriment to rejoice the festivities.
At such a jolly time with Christmas day arriving soon, you must obviously be decorating your home to get into the true holiday spirit and bring the festive look indoors.
But are the holidays turning into quite a stress as you rush about searching for the perfect Christmas decorations for your home but can’t seem to find what you want? Or do the ‘good’ ornaments seem too heavy on your pocket?
If looking for the ideal Christmas ornaments is proving too hard for you, then look no further.
The best way to adorn your home with the seasonal greetings and to ensure you have a really fun time while doing so is to make your own decorations.
It’s fun, it’s enjoyable, and it can involve your whole family and provide quality time together. And what’s more, it allows you to be as creative and as imaginative as you want.
So, if you want to make your home and Christmas tree stand out in the neighborhood, here are some easy yet superb ideas to bring the festive feel to life.
DIY Christmas Wreath
Welcome guests inside your home with a big bold wreath on the door that warmly greets all entrants.
And instead of spending large amounts on a store-made wreath, make one at home using an old hula-hoop.
Wrap the ring with some pines and leaves from your backyard, secure it with ribbons, and add any other embellishments as you like. Your gorgeous homemade wreath is ready!
A modern Christmas tree
Decorate your living room, bedroom or any other plain wall in your home with a simple and elegant ‘wall-mounted’ Christmas tree.
All you need is a few wooden sticks from your garden or any tree, some strings, and other ornaments to decorate your new ‘tree.’
Tie the wooden sticks of varying lengths with a strong rope, so they form a triangular shape of a tree. Hang it anywhere you like and attach balls and stars or place candles to complete this chic tree.
Send warm wishes to friends and neighbors by crafting your own greeting cards.
Search for some inspirational or heartwarming quotes from the internet or what’s even better; write your own messages for your loved ones. Show them you truly care by sending them handmade cards or wishes written on the backside of your pictures together.
A holiday feast
Besides preparing the traditional dishes, set the holiday ambiance at the dinner table by adding some simple themed items such as Christmas-printed napkins, red, white and green ribbons around the table and even placing a few tree decorations on the dinner table as well.
Adorn your windows with simple stars cut out from a decorative paper. And if you are handing them indoor, you can even insert a few cloves to make a natural, long-lasting, holiday-special air freshener.
