One of the most anticipated seasons every year is Christmas. This is the one time of the year where everyone gets to go home and be with their families and friends to celebrate Christmas. It is also one of the most celebrated occasions all over the globe. What is Christmas without classic Christmas decorations? Apart from waiting for December to turn in around the corner a lot of people have already pre-planned their holiday decor. Of course, apart from the gifts and food, how you bring Christmas into your home also matters.
What are the important things that you should consider when starting your Christmas decorations? There are a lot of things when you think about it, but it is important that you focus first on what is important and what should be done earlier than the others. Being prepared is going to help you in the long run. You would want to avoid the holiday rush and end up with disastrous decorations at home.
Starting your Christmas decoration
As with beginning everything you need to pick a theme. There is the traditional Christmas theme with red and green color combinations, or you could also go for the white Christmas look. If you have already done this theme you can always go for the gold theme, natural theme, vintage theme or even a beach Christmas theme. There are even cartoon character themes that you can work on. The possibilities are endless!
Start hanging wreaths. This is possibly the most obvious Christmas decor that you will see people hanging in the first few weeks of December, or even maybe November. You can even hit two birds with one stone if you start early and hang wreaths that work for both Thanksgiving and Christmas occasions. You can simply hang them up until Christmas passes. However, if you want to go for the all natural wreath then it’s about time to gather leaves, twigs, ribbons, nits, dried flowers and faux berries. If you want the wreath to last longer go for the synthetic berries and flowers.
When you are saving or have a tight budget for your Christmas decor you can always opt to make your own candles. Pick an afternoon that you can start your craft, you can even invite several family members to help you out and turn it into a bonding session. Make your very own candles in various colors and designs that you like, you can even tie ribbons on them to make them look extra special.
The next thing you should work on is the Christmas stockings. This is a must in the Christmas holiday! You can find wonderful Christmas stockings in stores in different sizes, though you can also make your own stockings from home. Make it more personalized and create one for each family member by placing their names on the stockings.
When you’re done with the stockings it’s about time you also add Christmas elves, Santa’s or even the nativity decor in your home. Christmas trains and collectibles will also serve as great decorations around this time. Top up your mantles, rugs, curtains, doorways and so on. Make sure the color is inviting, warm and of course festive. Make you home feel alive and welcoming to the Christmas spirit.
When you are done with the interior decoration, it is about time to focus on the exterior. Recreate your lawn, add reindeer figures that you can decorate; you can even dress up a snowman. A tip would be to avoid ladders and stick to open greenery or garlands on the front of the house. A big red bow will also work just fine.
Now it’s time to hang the Christmas lights! Light up your home in wonderful and colorful Christmas lights. You can even design them in various shapes on the façade of your home. You can play around with how the lights blink and create an artistic way of positioning the timing of the lights on your home. In other cases, people spell out merry Christmas with the lights.
Last but not the least is your Christmas tree. There are plenty of Christmas trees on sale but their prices go so much higher when the season approaches. If you wish to save more, better get the artificial tree as early as you can. The other option is to get a live tree. This is the best time to look for a good tree to use. Check how many strands of light you are going to put up on the tree. You can go for the 5 or 6 foot trees depending on how much lights and decorations you intend to put on it.
Best of all, you should enjoy the preparations for Christmas with family and friends. You can do all these DIY projects together and form bonding moments which will give you good memories to last a lifetime.
