With the first Christmas after the pandemic looming, its time to turn the doom and gloom of the pandemic years into a fun filled space for your home using the trendiest Christmas decorating ideas. Your home will definitely benefit from the injection of color, florals, sparkles and Christmas cheer. However, not everyone has it right when it comes to getting Christmas decorations for their home. Sometimes it could be they got the wrong height of the Christmas tree, or the Christmas lights simply weren’t impressive enough. Whichever the case, this simplified guide will show you what you should focus on when decorating for this most beloved of holidays.
Play Around with Nonconventional Christmas Lights
Traditional Christmas lights have been the hallmark for what makes Christmas holidays memorable. However, you can play around with less conventional shapes and colors of Christmas lights that are bound to add more brilliance to your holiday cheer. The most popular themes are sci-fi Christmas lights, which are LED based but designed to shine a warm glow like a conventional incandescent light.
Plastic or Natural Christmas Trees?
With global warming taking center stage, there have been calls to avoid resist buying natural Christmas trees. Of course, natural trees are not as perfect as plastic ones and tend to leave dirt especially the older they are. Still, there is a work around which might actually be good for the planet. You can consider growing your own pine or fir tree wherever you live. If you live in an apartment, you probably have a balcony with plenty of sunlight and this is just enough for your pine tree to grow into a beautiful Christmas tree.
However, if your house has a yard, consider planting several pines and potting them once they reach at least 3 feet in height. This process should take about a year if the weather is favorable and you add plenty of manure. You can then hire out to your neighbors, and make some handsome returns. Make sure the pots are large enough to support the tree as it grows and once it becomes fully mature and too large for your house, you can replant it in your yard and contribute to saving the planet.
Consider Making Your Own Decorations
You can also add some character to your Christmas decorations by creating your own iconic pieces. Check a few DIY videos online to see how to turn waste bottles into light features, and the more beautiful the bottle design, the better the overall look becomes. Adding some fake Christmas gifts as decoration underneath your tree is also a good idea. You don’t have to weigh down your Christmas trees with lights and therefore these decorations can be put around the trees and would look really great with gifts neatly arranged around them.
Christmas is all about creating an atmosphere of happiness and fun, therefore the more appealing your decorations are, the better. You can collect as many decoration ideas online, which would greatly reduce your overall costs and you can spread the Christmas cheer by donating some of your extra decoration items.
