1. DIY Snowflakes
Christmas decorations are never complete without a Do it Yourself Snowflake. Whether you put it on the top of your Christmas tree or scatter them around your house, they give an attractive look anywhere. Instead of spending money on expensive snowflakes from the market, how about you try making one yourself?
These are not only extremely easy to make, but they also hardly take 5 minutes. Instead of making just one, you can make plenty and let your imagination run wild when putting them up as decorations around your house.
2. Light it up with fairy lights
Whether you decide to put up these lights indoors or outdoors, they will bring with them a little twinkle everywhere. Driving around the neighborhood and admiring the lights on houses is all part of the Christmas fun.
Indoors, the lights suit the Christmas tree, and the window linings the most. Outdoors, you can decorate branches, large shrubs, or your fence.
3. Personalized Ornaments
Do it yourself home decorations are very pretty, and can also make you feel satisfied with your hard work and creativity. A variety of these can be the sole reason for the festive spirit that floats your home.
Get some colorful pom-poms and paint them with colors that relate to Christmas. These can be put at the top of your Christmas tree. Instead of spending money on market-bought bells and stars, you can cut them out on cardboard and then use glue to use them as decoration.
4. Scented Candles
Scented candles will not only put you in a cozy mood, but they also have the power to take you down memory lane! The aromatic candles can be best put as a middle piece on the dining table, or decorated around windows and other furniture.
Pine, cranberry, cinnamon, berries, and apple pie are some of the best scents to gel with the Christmas vibe.
5. Treats for your sweet tooth
Make sure that you are all stocked up with a variety of chocolates and sweets that you have now been craving for a while! Instead of just keeping these candy and sweet boxes in your kitchen, using your dining table or living room to scatter them and arrange them in a way that they look festive is a good idea.
Minced pies, gingerbread, Christmas cake, quiches, and egg nog are some of the Christmas special sweets you can try this season.
The best part about using garlands as decorations is that you can get as creative as you want. Apart from buying a garland, you can also use flowers, bells, lights, and bows to tweak it the way you like. Garlands can be put on your kitchen cupboards, doors, windows, mantels, and stair banisters.
We are sure that this guide will help you transform your house into nothing less than a wonderland! Even if you decide to put up a few of these decorations, we guarantee you the time of your life.
