If you have an artificial Christmas tree you really need a storage bag with wheels to keep it until next year.Carrying a full box is quite heavy, especially if you need to keep it in the basement or attic for the year. Those stairs are killers. By using a rolling unit you can more easily move from one room or floor to another.
This Ceramic Christmas Tree is not only a great Do-It-Yourself decorating project, it also makes a great gift. I made one when I was young and this year my kids made one – with a bit of supervision of course! I know they will enjoy looking at at during the holidays. In fact now they both want one to use as a night light in their bedrooms after we take down the decorations.
It takes a little more time to find special Christmas Tree Ornaments rather than just balls or teardrops, but these Bright Blue ones should fill the bill. I love to use birds and found a couple of them. One of them has a clip on it and could be placed on several branches. And I love love the biplane model. How cute to see it flying around in the branches with the birds.
Nutcrackers started becoming a Traditional Christmas decoration in the 1800s after two books by Dumas and Hoffman and were published on the subject. Later Tchaikovsky adapted a ballet from the stories. The ballet became very popular in the mid 1900s and was performed during the holiday season. This led to the rise of the popularity of suing nutcrackers as a Christmas decoration.
Have you every thought of having a Christmas Tree decorated in in just two colors of Ornaments, like Pink and Purple? I have often wondered how that would look – quite elegant and glamorous I would think. And then how about on a white background – especially if you still have one of those old fashioned flocked ones.
Burgundy and Gold Ornaments add a bit of flair to your Christmas Tree. Whether each one contains both colors or you use each color in a separate bauble, the effect is stunning. Try to use a variety of shapes, sizes and patterns. You can do your entire holiday decor completely in this color scheme, or add any of these these to your existing one.
One of the quickest ways to update your Christmas Decor is by covering throw pillows you already have with Festive Pillow Covers. This is quick, easy and economical. This method also saves on storage space as you only need to store the outer casing and not the whole thing. You can do this with any holiday or decorating scheme where you want a large impact with little time or money.
