Home Decorations For this Christmas
Beautify Your Home With A Poinsettia Tree
It is very simple to create this wonder tree. You just need to cut some large blooms to a length of about six inches. Scorch them a bit to stop the dripping of sap. The sap should be scorched with the help of the candle flame, so that the end of the stem turns black. Make sure the edges of leaves that were cut off from the stem are also seared. Now, take a florist tube, fill it with water, and immerse the stem into it.
Since the stems are seared, they will absorb the water, as they are hollow. Make a base with ivy topiary and place the stem in it. Follow this procedure, for all the poinsettia blooms by cutting stems to various sizes as per the arrangement you wish to do. Start from below and work towards the top. Now, the poinsettia tree is ready. You just need to keep filling the tube with water for a few days, whenever required to keep it fresh and beautiful. This gives a great look for Christmas.
Make Your Front Door Look Special With A Touch Of Color
Christmas is associated with colors like red and green. Accent the bright white door with the evergreen wreath. Make it more appealing by adding a few wide red ribbons to give a graphic punch and complete the Christmas look. To add sparkling touches for the night add some twinkling lights.
Silver is exquisite. Use a silver serving tray and show off a beautiful centerpiece with some clippings from the garden and some vintage ornaments.
You could begin with magnolia, pine and boxwood followed by ball ornaments and crocosmia pods, abelia and pinecones. Abelia whose flowers have fallen look great as they show off pink sepals. For a finishing touch, add a few sprigs, smaller ornaments and dried shelf mushrooms.
Greenery And Fruit Arrangement
Take a vase or a glass hurricane and make an arrangement, which will stay through the entire Christmas season by placing layers of lemons, red holly berries etc. You can finish it with some greenery and stems. It is a great decorative piece to welcome and enjoy the festive season.
Snow Globe Using A Mason Jar
To create this, you just need jars in different sizes, superglue that is waterproof, trinkets, glycerin and glitter. Stick the trinkets to the inner side of the jar lid using the glue and let it dry for a day.
Now, fill the entire jar with water and allow the trinket to submerge in it. Add a few drops of glycerin and glitters. Use some glue, stick the lid to the band of the jar, and allow it to dry. Now, apply some glue to the inner edge of the lid, screw on to the jar, and let it dry completely. A beautiful Mason jar snow globe is ready.
