Christmas is like magic. It is a special time of year when you can feel the joy of the Holiday Season in the air. Everyone is jolly, families visit loved ones, you prepare special foods, the Christmas decorations are magical, and everything seems like a real-life Disney film.
We also understand how busy this holiday season will be for most of you. Making delicious food, decorating the house in the most beautiful way possible, and making sure everyone has a gift can be overwhelming.
You indeed have the real Christmas spirit within you. And as a tribute to this spirit of yours, here are our DIY eye-catching Christmas decoration ideas that we think will be a perfect gift from us to you.
In recent years, there’s been a sudden shift among people’s colour preferences across the globe during Christmas time. These days it seems most people prefer going with the softer-looking natural-coloured themes, rather than traditional red & green themes.
And in the world of soft natural colours, who can beat the beautiful pale pink. Nowadays, you can get all sorts of decorations, Christmas baubles, ornaments, and vases that are perfect for complementing your soft pink-coloured Christmas theme. Candles can also aid you with Christmas decorations. Try to mix in blue or purple colours to provide a beautiful contrast combo with this theme.
Nothing better than an ornaments overload
No matter what kind of decoration or wrapping paper theme you have in mind this Christmas one thing will always be certain, you can never possibly get enough ornaments for Christmas!
Santa, snowmen, nutcrackers, sparklers, angels, etc., there is a whole universe of these fantastic ornaments out there. And what’s more impressive is that these ornaments don’t only look perfect on the Christmas tree but can also be spread across the house with scented candles and decorations from Koch & Co.
Who doesn’t love gingerbread?
The spirit of Christmas is not complete until the gingerbread delicacy is present in one form or another, especially if you have kids around who love to eat and enjoy during these festive holidays. But can you convert the gingerbread into a Christmas decoration? Of course, you can! Plus, it is one of the few decorations that are edible and super tasty as well. Your creativity when it comes to gingerbread houses, gingerbread men, and gingerbread decorations are only bound by your imagination alone.
Ho Ho Ho, plants everywhere!
One of the most significant parts of Christmas decorations is the Christmas tree itself. The decorations and Christmas flowers loaded on the tree create a unique sense of festiveness and joy. And what’s even better is that you can set your complete Christmas festive theme revolving around the Christmas tree.
To add to your Christmas Tree setup and home decorations you can also add artificial plants to your doorways and porches. There are so many unique and beautiful looking artificial plants available these days that will enhance your complete Christmas theme. To decorate your plants try adding some Christmas picks to their leaves or pots. Don’t worry; these plants are budget efficient and can improve the overall appearance of the Christmas tree instead of hiding it.
Go crazy with the glitter & glam.
It’s Christmas time! Don’t worry if you are afraid that everything you’re doing will look over the top. Express your inner creativity and enjoy the celebrations just the way you like. And to do this right, you will need to glam things up a little bit.
All your vases and candles look amazing on their own, but you will always have plenty of space to show your skills with the rest of the decorations. Get some sparkling glitter and show how outstanding your DIYing skills are.
Lighting up your whole world
Of all the well-known Christmas decorations, lights are the most crucial yet underestimated decorations of all time. Most people don’t even consider doing something creative with lights besides hanging them on the Christmas tree. And this is where you are going to shine.
Along with lighting up the Christmas tree and artificial plants, try to get some extra strings of LED lights. We recommend going with soft and Christmas-appropriate light colours. Now, you can either spread the strings around the dining table or the gifts sections; it’s totally up to your imagination now. Never forget to insulate the lighting equipment and wires even if there are no kids around.
Old is always gold
Even with the latest Christmas decorations and ideas, there’s no way we can forget the centuries-old Christmas traditions and decorations. They somehow complete the whole spirit of Christmas, bringing out the sweet Christmas memories of our childhoods.
Star-shaped hangers, Santa themed ornaments, signature Christmas-colored wrapping paper, there are tons of options that one can opt for. Even better if you remember a signature Christmas decoration that your mum use to have. Call her now if you can, get the steps on how to make it, and try out your DIYing skills. You will now be able to show the same Christmas spirit you loved as a child to your family & friends.
