Home decor for winter holidays – Now is the time to begin to decorate your home for the winter holidays. If you thought that was enough to decorate a Christmas tree, it’s an absolute mistake! If you want to be trendy and have a style, you’ll need a bit more of an effort to do a perfect festive decorations. I’ll give you some ideas on how to take advantage of Christmas and New Year’s props and how to do to decorate your home.
1. Decorate your Christmas trees. The easiest and most affordable way to decorate your home is to make the ornaments. Regardless of whether you love sparkly gold and silver or bright colors, they can create a beautiful effect.
You can put your ornaments in jars or vases, trays, or even on ordinary plates and just put down on the table, on the window sill or above the fireplace – a striking and modern effect is guaranteed! However, if you’re in the mood for a bit of manual work, you can make wreaths out of evergreen branches and ornaments – they are so beautiful and unusual!
Here are the instructions how to do this. One thing you should remember is to make all your holiday decor in a same color palette or in one specific combination of colors. For example, if you decide to decorate in the glamorous style, then all the decorations, branches and other objects should be gold, silver and shiny – after all, you want it to be glamorous.
2. Christmas lights and snow flakes. Christmas lights can not only be used on Christmas trees but in many other ways. Using them you can form different shapes on the wall, or arrange them on the window or somewhere else – believe me, their charm only grows with time. What are these lights without snow flakes? They can be made of paper, wood, porcelain or other material. Of course, the easiest way is to make a paper version, and if you are inspired to do it yourself it’s a quite simple “do it yourself” project with very nice results. Here’s how to make a paper snowflake.
3. Christmas socks. A mandatory element of every Christmas tree! If you want gifts from Santa Claus, be sure to have a sock somewhere in your home. And while you’re at it, do it with style: a sock to be shiny, colorful and serves as an accent in your room. If you do that, we guarantee you that you have no other decorations will be needed.
4. The twigs and branches. Another very affordable way to add a festive vibe is decorating your home with various branches. It can be plain twig that you find in park or beautiful Manzanita branches (which do not fall into the category of “very affordable”), and you can use them either as a Christmas tree and decorate it accordingly, or you can decorate them with a few decorations or paper snowflakes and from that create a nice central decoration piece for your table or just a detail for your room.
Remember that whatever you decorate your home for the winter holidays, it should represent you and your style of living, but the most important is that you feel comfortable with all that you have done.
