Christmas is coming soon. It’s time to think about Christmas decoration! Obviously, hypermarkets and shopping centres tempt us with pre-made decorations. However, don’t you think it would be much better to prepare the Christmas decoration by yourself? You really don’t need much skill and personally made decoration will surely surprise your guests! Today we’ve prepared a few simple inspirations, that can be easily made at home. Check how easy it is!

CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATION

Who said that Christmas balls have to be traditional and bought in a shop? In the above photo we suggest you how to easily make extraordinary and fragrant Christmas tree decoration. Cut some apples, lemons or oranges in slices and dry them. Then, add a decorative thread or ribbon and enjoy your self-made decoration!


Another idea is to make self-made, decorated gingerbreads. Gingerbreads may be decorated with traditional white sugar (the effect will be amazing!), but remember that in Christmas season, hypermarkets are full of confectionery decorations. Find them out by yourself and create unique decorations. After Christmas you’ll enjoy their taste! :)

Wooden pendants are also a good idea! Made via painting a piece of wood as you like, it will look amazing. Additionally, you may add some spruce twigs, so they look like ears! You just need to drill small holes and put twigs inside!

DOOR DECORATION

Hanging a wreath on the front door of the house during Christmas season is a quite common tradition. Obviously, pre-made wreaths can be purchased in a shop, but we suggest going the creative way and make them by yourself!

Wreaths can be more or less traditional. To make a wreath that looks like the one above, we only need a few pine twigs, cones, a few gold-painted twigs, baubles and a piece of wire, to put it all together. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? And it truly is easy!
For people, who are looking for even more creative and extraordinary solutions, we suggest making a wreath from pieces of wood and cones. To make this wreath, we need a small frame, that can be bought in florist shop. We also need a few twigs, cones, Christmas baubles, hot glue and… willingness! Just look at the final effect. Don’t you think it look amazing? ?

CHRISTMAS TREE – PLASTIC OR ALIVE ?

Such a custom Christmas tree can be made also with pasta! Same as in the case of twine Christmas tree, at first you need to make a frame from cardboard. Then, with the usage of hot glue, you should attach penne pasta. The whole tree may be decorated with glitter for a better effect. ? Christmas trees lovers are divided between these who prefer artificial or true trees. It’s worth remembering, that there are also other solutions this eternal dilemma – you can create a Christmas tree by yourself, for example from… jute twine! It’s enough to wrap a piece of cardboard with food foil, then wrap it all with the twine, giving it a shape of a Christmas tree. After this, paint it all with wallpaper glue and leave it for next 24 hours. Then, you may proceed to decorated your beautiful Christmas tree!
