Christmas tree, light garlands, tangerines and candles are the main attributes for a fabulous Christmas night. But what if you try something new? Here are some ideas that we really liked.
Try to decorate the Christmas tree differently, not as usually you do from year to year. For example, such unusual materials like ribbon, fresh flowers, knit booties and socks. Try to make new Christmas toys, thus you will spend a wonderful time with your family. You can also refer to the origins and decorate the Christmas tree with sweets and bagels, as was done in the distant past. The tree can be visualized on a wall or board with light garlands or sprigs of spruce. This is a great way if you want a big tree but not enough place.
Spruce branches look very pretty in glass jars and bottles with water. You can also decorate them and fragrances will lighten your mood and immunity.
Wreaths are not only for doors and walls. You can hang a wreath over the table and even add candles and get a Christmas chandelier. Wreaths can decorate windows or become the main decoration of the Christmas table. Also it will be an excellent decoration for the chairs. Try to make a wreath in a new way from unexpected materials.
