When it comes down to Christmas decorations, there will always be a room to make your home both an aesthetically stunning place while having fun with it at the same time.
Christmas decorations are a welcome addition to the nice ritualistic part of the holiday season. Nothing will allow you to handle the job more easily than working on creating that perfect look. The following examples from guest blogger Ella Andrews will give you a few ideas you can use for decorations to make it all count:
Creating paper snowflakes
This is a classic solution that is really easy to make, since they require a bit of work for preparations but not too much in terms of work as well. You can easily hang them from your windows, making use of the Christmas tree and using these decorations all around the home. You can make use of this by using paper and scissors to make the snowflakes. Just take a piece of paper, fold it in half twice diagonally, then this will produce the shape you need after cutting into it. This is the step that will make the snowflake shape, so use jagged shapes for various looks once you unfold the paper. This is a simple yet elegant and very useful holiday solution that will work wonders.
Making white sock snowmen
Even though this may sound like the name of a band or something, the truth is these can be a really easy solution for your home cleaning and improvement needs. All you have to do to make it work is to get some tube socks. Get them and put some dry beans or rice as filling. When they are about ¾ full you can then tie a rubber band to create a waist for your new snowmen, then another one around the neck. Once you have this done, you will need to make some adjustments to get the shape right. In the end they will be done quite quickly, so you won’t have to worry about the details. You can fill the heads of the snowmen with cotton, then you will be able to fold it toward the outside of it to look like they have a hat on. Use a hot glue gun to put on some eyes with a set of buttons. You can also use superglue instead of making use of a hot glue gun. You can also work on sewing the buttons on, whatever works best for your needs. Use sticks for the arms and you will have an almost complete snowman each time. You can add smaller details, such as putting up clothes, a nose and a bit of something else such as an improvised scarf.
It will not take much to deal with completing such home decorations, but the end result is that you will also need to deal with house cleaning when the job is done. Begin by checking for the need for carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning. It will not require a lot to make things work in terms of house cleaning, so look into it when you have the chance.
