4 Tips For Decorating Your Home For The Holidays

0

As the holiday season is just around the corner, many of us are starting to get prepared. From making lists of ideas of what to buy our loved ones for gifts, to considering what kinds of stocking stuffers we should gift this year, it’s that time of the year to start dusting off our box of Christmas decor.  Because a decorated home is 1 that is even more festive and inviting than one that isn’t decorated. Your home feels cozier, and welcoming, making the holidays that much more enjoyable. So, if you’re in the holiday spirit and ready to start decorating, here are some tips for this season.

Choose a Theme

What fun is decorating if you don’t switch it up every year? Choose a theme that you’ve never tried before this year. Perhaps you go for a Harry Potter theme, or just plain traditional. Whatever theme you choose, make sure that it’s cohesive throughout the home. From your ornaments to your lights, to your displayed handmade creations, make sure they all go with your theme to create a harmonious look and feel.

Lights

What would Christmas be without lights? Make sure you have plenty of lights not only on your tree but also interspersed throughout your halls and walls. From fairy lights to big blinking bulbs, there’s no such thing as too much when it comes to holiday cheer.

Try out different colors and styles, and have fun with it. If you really want to get into the holiday spirit, consider adding lights on the outside of your home as well. If your energy bill is a concern, consider setting timers so that your lights are only on during certain hours of the day. That way, you can rest assured that if you forget to turn them off, you won’t be senselessly wasting electricity.

Choose a Statement Tree

There is a Christmas tree, and then there’s a Christmas tree. Why not make your Christmas tree something extraordinary this year? Go ahead and make your tree the centerpiece of your decoration theme. Whether you have an artificial tree or a real one, you can still have fun choosing something truly outstanding.

The trick for a fabulous Christmas tree is to always start with the ornaments, then move on to tinsel and lights, and balance it off with a topper. Doing things out of order can lead to an imbalanced tree with tangles and lumps.

DIY

If you have children, making decorations yourself can be an extra fun Christmas activity. You can craft ornaments, or even make your own garland. While you’re at it, teach your children how to cut up paper snowflakes.  Don’t forget gingerbread houses and cotton snowmen! Display them in the window, and when the holidays are over, store them away ready to pull out for the next year.
