Everyone wants to have a gorgeous Christmas tree for holiday the season. Often that means having to purchase the same products that are available to everyone else, but beautiful Christmas trees should also include investing some time into creative decorative concepts to make it not only special for the season, but for every member of your family.
While it may be fun to add new decorations to your current collection every year, it can also be fun to modify what is already available in storage. Pick a theme from the very beginning, and try to stick with it when selecting your tree decorations for a more uniform vision. Some really good ideas are available on blogs and interior design websites for using both new and old items to create a family tree that will excite and please everyone.
Collect unique, small picture frames and create ornaments from them that will display members of the family. Frames with crystals and bright metallic finishes are usually the best, because they catch the tree lights and add extra sparkle. Select the best photos for display and be very creative with copying, cropping and inserting them into the frames. Use either photos from Christmas events in the past or display personal favorites that hold special meanings for your family and guests.
The use of dried or silk floral can be a wonderful addition to a traditional tree, and it lends a certain elegant touch. It can also fill gaps that are sometimes present in both real and artificial trees. They’re available in a variety of colors to match many decorating styles. Small groups spread evenly around the tree will create a soft and warm transformation.
Simple items can not only make a tree look great, but they can smell wonderful as well. Using some festive thin ribbon to wrap and hang small bundles of cinnamon sticks or potpourri twigs is one way to fill the air with the smell of Christmas. These little bundles add a traditional touch to the tree and smell much better than the candy canes, although candy canes are always fun too.
To add additional ornaments, a new tradition could be allowing the family to vote on what is added each year. If planning to stay with a traditional tree, then stick with that particular type. Be sure to limit the number purchased, because they accumulate quickly! While decorating each year, everyone can reflect on the choices that they made and each one will have certain significance.
While they may not always be considered elegant, handcrafted ornaments made by children add a very special touch. They will also help to get your children excited about preparing the house for Christmas, giving them wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
This is the time of the year to celebrate family and love, and decorating the tree can be a wonderful way to come together and enjoy the holiday season. With the combination of the flowers, photos, personal ornaments and lights, it will be a tree to behold for every year.
