You’re leaving it late if you haven’t yet started your Christmas shopping or decorated your house for the big day, now that we’re into December. But there’s still time.
The internet is your friend for buying all those last-minute festive gifts for people, and you could have a decorating day this weekend, letting the kids get involved with helping.
Making the place look and feel all Christmassy will put everyone in a festive mood and get them excited.
So, hit the play button on your Christmas playlist and use these three tips as inspiration for your decorating duties:
Hang a Christmas tree from the ceiling
No, we haven’t been on the mulled wine! This is a genuine suggestion as lots of people are doing it this year, including Ariana Grande who posted a photo of her upside-down Christmas tree.
What Ariana, and any others doing it, probably don’t realise is that Christmas trees were often hung upside-down in the Middle Ages, so it’s certainly not a new thing.
You can get yourself one from Christmas Tree World and a number of other online retailers. Getting showing it off on your social media once it’s done.
Put a festive spin on your stairs
We put Christmas lights and lanterns in our windows, and wreaths on our front doors, but what many don’t do is decorate their stairs for Santa, and you should.
From the bottom of your bannister, right up to the top of it, you could have an all-natural garland with fairy lights, either on top of it or along its base. Mini garlands could also be twisted around the stair rails.
The placement of little Christmas boxes on each of the steps leading up to the top will also be a fine festive touch.
Wrap your front door like a Christmas present
Have a year off from hanging a wreath on your front door and gift wrap it instead.
Buy a large piece of fabric (preferably red if you have a white or light-coloured door) as well as a big bow, heavy duty magnet and some duct tape.
The door needs to be measured first so that the fabric can be cut to size, before you use it to wrap the door, sticking the bow to the heavy duty magnet once it’s done so that it remains secure.
After Christmas and New Year, you may come to the conclusion that you need a new front door. Amber Home Improvements can get that organised for you, so just ask for a FREE quote.
