There’s no denying that this is the most wonderful time of the year. Even if we neglect the cold, the hustle and bustle of the shopping spree, and the need to meticulously select and wrap the right present for your loved ones, we absolutely adore Christmas. Whether it’s the chill, glitter, décor, or just the tradition, decorating our home and surroundings is what we all eagerly expect. As it can be tiring or even difficult to all of those wintry things, here are some easy decorating hacks that any novel DIY individual can do.
Hang dazzling ornaments
Christmas tree ornaments aren’t just for the tree, on the contrary, the magnificent colors can embellish your chandelier fantastically. The only thing you need to do is choose a few variously shaped ornaments, preferably in different colors (but aim for golden, green, and red), take a decorative tape, and tie it around the chandelier or other lamp. The glow will be sensational as multicolor light will reflect from the bulb.
Embellish your art
If you happen to own a majestic vintage cupboard or you have found fantastic carved skulls for sale, you can transform those unique pieces of art into Christmas delight. For the old-fashioned cupboard, you only need to cover it with a red or golden table cloth and place a luscious table centerpiece. And for the hand-crafted skull that’s hanging from your wall, just simply embellish it with decorative sparkling garland or use the horns as a string light garland holder.
A shimmery candle holder
Candles and warm wintry hues truly represent this loving season, hence if you have bought plain but largely white, red, or emerald, take time to make a nice holder yourself. You would need tape, a pair of scissors, shimmery wrapping paper, and a wide ashtray or any other cup that would fit the candle. Cut the paper circularly, and wrap it around the cup, tie it with golden string, spray some extra glitter, and voila.
Upscale your Christmas lights
If you got tired from the basic black or green strings and want to have a bit different Christmas this year, here is a simple trick that will utterly transform it. Get a bucket of golden or silver paint (or spray paint will do) and give your existing Christmas lights a flabbergasting metallic glow by spraying the cords. Simple as that, but totally mind-blowing.
A stunning vase hack
Probably you have seen shops filled with glorious table centerpieces that cost an insane amount of money. That may be so, but you can easily implement these hacks and have a fantastic Christmas vase made solely on your own. Find a large vase, place a large candle in the middle or paper towel tube to hold the ornaments, and then place beautiful Christmas bulbs in various colors.
Use up some lush greeneries
Look for pine cones, pine tree branches, or any leftover greeneries that you may get, get red berries (plastic of course) and white spray paint. Get a plate, glue, and tape. Place the lush greeneries all around the plate, decorate it with cones and barries, and later glue small candles around it. In the end, you can spray the end of the branches timidly with white paint. If you don’t want to use this hack for a table centerpiece, then mind the candles, and use it as a Christmas door wreath.
A genius wrapping idea
Wrapping presents is the pivotal point of Christmas, however, not all are skilled at it. The best idea that will save you time, money, and nerves is to wrap the presents in a classical manner. Get some holly-jolly Christmas-themed paper, scissors, and tapes, and bend the paper evenly so that you cover the present thoroughly. The end-hack is the oversized plush ribbon. With a red ribbon, every present will look sensational.
Don’t overdo with the décor, as sometimes the simple but tasty Christmas decorative items can revive the spirit and make your home feel welcomed and cheerful. These above-mentioned easy hacks will save you time so that you can rather spend time with the family.
