Nothing quite announces the holidays than Christmas decorations and though most people simply go for what they have perennially done, it doesn’t hurt to spice things up a little bit. However, most people find it hard to move away from the traditional image of a Christmas tree with lights, and this article will serve as a simplified guide to help you stand out from the rest.
Getting the Right Approach for Christmas Lights
If you want your Christmas decoration to stand out, then you need to think a bit out of the box. Of course, some of the traditional elements will still remain, and so there’s no need to throw out the tree idea just yet. The best approach is to think of your decoration as a home aesthetic improvement rather than a simple decoration. The trick is to get Christmas lights early and ones that stand out.
You can find some good decorative lights from other parts of the store and not necessarily from the holiday decorations aisle. If you need help finding great lights then consider removing the term ‘Christmas Lights’ from your search if looking online and simply window shop to find something that stands out.
Plant Your Own Christmas Tree
Getting a quality deal is not always as easy as people think. It becomes even harder when you wait till last minute for your tree shopping. To avoid this problem in the long term, consider planting your own Christmas trees. Most pines and firs take about 3 years to get to a good height from seed stage, but you can cut this time short by simply getting already grown seedlings at about 3 feet in height and putting it in a pot. When well catered for, the plant will grow an extra foot by Christmas and you can start decorating it. However, be careful not to put too many lights while the tree is still young, because this might overwhelm it and cause it to bend.
Go for a Warmer Ambience with Incandescent Christmas Lights
The classic image of Christmas lights has always been the warm incandescent types. However, lately, LED light have begun to take over and though these give a wider variety of shapes, they still lack the warm glow that incandescent lights give off. So, if you plan early, you can find the classic incandescent lights to restore that traditional Christmas feeling and make your home glow warmer.
In conclusion, getting the right Christmas decorations shouldn’t seem like such a chore. You can always try some home décor ideas and craft something that will be unique to your home. Start with a canva and build up from there. Your wall painting can also give you an idea of just how warm or bright you need your Christmas lights to be. In the end, it is all about celebrating a happy holiday and not about showing off to your neighbors. Even if that were the case, then there would be nothing wrong with that.
