It’s getting to that time of year again; Christmas is creeping closer and closer every day. There’s a lot to think and worry about during this season, from presents to coordinating Christmas functions and much more. But it’s important to remember the lovely parts of Christmas. Putting up the Christmas tree at the start of December is a ritual for many families, and there are so many ways that you can decorate the tree to make it one to remember!
Pick the perfect tree
Of course, the actual Christmas tree is the most important part – it’s your foundation, a blank canvas waiting for your creativity to be unleashed upon it. There are several different styles and sizes out there, so choose one that will suit your home.
Light up my life
The tree lights are the second most important factor, as they will be what draws the eye to the tree. Go for multi-coloured for a bit of whimsy, or a simple blue or white to mimic delicate icicles hanging off the branches of the tree.
Going to Tinseltown
Opt for the minimalist look without tinsel, or go with the glitzy option by decorating with tinsel. There is no shortage of colours and styles to choose from, so feel free to go a bit nuts with this one!
Starlight, star bright
The star on top of the tree is the pièce de résistance, the jewel in the crown. You want to find something that is elegant and beautiful, but also unique. If you’re feeling extra creative, you can create your star out of wire, felt, paper-mâché or any other materials you feel would make something spectacular. You don’t even have to be limited to having a star crown on your tree; you could have an angel, an ornamental dog, or anything else!
The finishing touches
You want your Christmas tree ornaments to reflect your family, household and personality. Choose little stockings that you can hang on the tree to fill with lollies or chocolate, or have a crafternoon and make them yourself! Make pom-poms, attach a string to family photos to hang them up, or use some recycled items from around the home like bottlecaps and paint them in festive colours – fun for all the family!
