Ho ho ho! Hard to imagine, but we’re already in December— and it’s time for some jolly Christmas cheer! Wondering how to make your decorations stand out? Here’s how you can deck the halls and ring in Christmas this year!
Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly!
Christmas décor should always start right at the front door! This DIY Christmas wreath uses leftover cane wire that has been spray-painted in gold. It doesn’t have to be a perfect circle; the imperfections add to the charm. Decorate your homemade loop with paper leaves, gold and silver balls and Christmas poinsettias.
Christmas Lights, Keep Shining On!
Candlelight is synonymous with Christmas celebrations. Dress up your candles with cinnamon stick swirls, to create the prettiest, most aromatic candles around! For the best effect, you will need to get cinnamon sticks that are roughly the same size and shape. Get creative and conjure up a festive ambience with nutmeg, star anise, paper lace and pine cones.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Here’s a lovely craft idea for those who love to do-it-yourself! Conchiglie pasta shells are glued using hot glue onto a cardboard cone to create this delightful pasta tree. Use some acrylic paint and gold spray for the decorations. These tiny trees can be used as charming centrepieces on your table, on shelves, and on countertops to usher in a whiff of Christmas magic!
We Wish You A Merry Christmas!
Not enough space to put up a tree? Get into the spirit with a make-believe tree that’s fashioned out of ferns and tinsel right on your living room wall. Add some shiny baubles and pile up the presents right below. Don’t forget to top your tree with a star!
Joy To The World; The Lord Is Come!
No festival celebration is ever complete without creative lighting. We love the way this festoon of warm light bulbs has been teased into the shape of a tree on the wall. Drop-down bulbs that are strung up at varying heights complete this pretty-as-a-picture look!
