Leaf Wreath

asdadsasThis wreath is so easy to make. Use a dry cleaners coat hanger and bend into a circle leaving the top part that goes over the rod as is. Untwist the area of neck. Push undried leaves through and fill the circle. Twist back together and you can now use the the part that goes over the rod as a hanger. It is suggested that a few light coats of polyurethane be added – this will keep the leaves from crumbling. To change up the look – cover with a thick coat of spray paint.

Festive Holiday Decorating Ideas And Deck The Halls In Five Minutes Or Less

There is no better season of the year than the holiday one. It is when we feel more enthusiastic than ever and ready to find some peace in our hearts and minds. We usually choose to spend the holidays with family and friends and want to be surrounded by joy and festive entertainment. With this intended purpose, today we have considered useful to analyze some of the most interesting festive holiday decorating ideas that could help you all establish the perfect atmosphere for your gathering with friends during this season. Let’s find out more about these below.


Decorate the house to give it a festive mood

During the holiday season, everyone wants to spend more time at home with people close to their hearts. We feel the need to see and feel more joy in the world and we are eager to transform our home into a perfectly developed festive environment in which our family and friends might feel like part of a fairytale. This is a good feeling and a nice way of relieving stress and bringing joy into our life.

Purchasing the Christmas tree and decorating it together with family members and friends is a special way of spending quality time and feeling what the holiday spirit is all about. Even making purchases is more pleasant during this time of the year because we buy items that help us decorate the house in a fun way and this gives us joy.

Not only the Christmas tree can be perfectly decorated for the holiday season but also the entire house to transform it into the perfect environment for the holidays. Purchase attractive decoration items or choose to do some yourself and give your home a festive look for the big parties you have planned for this season.


Find inspiration online and in magazines

If you want something really special in terms of decorations this year and do not know how to proceed or have too many ideas and you do not know how to organize these, it is always a great idea to find inspiration online or in gorgeous magazines that create special pictures for us to admire.

Sometimes just simple adorning touches can bring a powerful change of atmosphere and make your home feelmore festive and really bright. This will make it the perfect place where everyone will like to gather and spend a great time together telling funny stories, waiting for Santa or finding new ways of having fun. You can decorate the entire house in a customized manner from the front door to the mantel and bring the magical spirit of the holidays in your neighborhood.

All you need is to find unique ways in which to use even the simplest elements or items you have purchased to give your home a festive look. How about transforming the simplest holiday greetings into art just by displaying these in a unique manner? You can use a magnetic bulletin board for example in which to display your favorite seasonal cards and create a great environment for new magical memories. Just let your creative side free and start having fun rotating these in, around and out.


Have your fair share of fun with your own creativity

Decorating the house in a festive manner should be fun every single time. It is not something you do out of necessity but something that allows you to set your creativity free and create wonderful designs based on your own good taste and requirements. How about creating your own tabletop tradition this year by wrapping small, interesting gift boxes and numbering them before displaying these on a cake stand? Do not forget to include surprises into each of these boxes and just wait to see the joy on your friends’ faces when they discover their gifts.

The holiday season is all about magic, joy and creativity in everything you do. It is your time to shine this year by coming up with innovative decoration ideas and decking the halls in five minutes or less using only an effective oilcloth. Get the house ready for your guests and you will have a party worth remembering your whole life. Do not forget to turn your camera on!

Snowman Table Setting

snowman settingWith a salad plate and a dinner plate add snowflakes, M&M’s (for eyes, mouth and buttons) and a napkin folded for the bow tie.  Add a carrot for the nose and (not pictured) add a paper cutout of a top hat. I love the table runner of large snowflakes.

Antler Christmas Tree

Although I am not fond of the rest of the homes decorations I do love this tree. Since it can be made from antlers that have dropped and collected this is really neat. I imagine these have been bleached and cleaned really well to give a clean white appearance. I would make it taller and add some ornaments made of natural materials. What re your thoughts?
