You don’t need a lot to add a dash of Christmas spirit to your home. Children love the hype, and if we’re honest, it make us a little excited too. Here’s a few tips to give that Christmas touch to your home.
A simple wreath on the front door is always welcoming both for guests and when you come home. It just adds a touch of Christmas spirit. If you don’t have a front door or are worried of losing the wreath hang it in a window on red ribbon for example.
Decorations around the house
A few simple decorations spread around the house can add a lovely touch. For example a small wooden tree on your mantel or a nutcracker, or be a bit novel and add a small Christmas tree to an ornament such as this car, snow globes are also quite magical whether they are homemade or not!
Christmas scented oil made of cloves and cinnamon. Dab it on your light bulbs, the warmth will release the scent. Alternatively one of the wonderful cinnamon and sandalwood candles available.
Christmas Tea Towels or Aprons
A Christmas apron or tea towels hanging in the kitchen always brings Christmas cheer to a Kitchen
Purchase a Poinsettias plant for your hall console, dining table or coffee table. Its red blooms are often associated with Christmas.
Christmas Tree Branches
For those with no space for a Christmas tree, use Christmas tree branches from your local shop selling trees, and use these to decorate your home or place them in a vase. The smell is just incredible!
Other alternatives to a Christmas tree branch are branches from your garden placed in a jug and hang decorations from ribbons, one of the small trees you can purchase in store, or sticks stack against the wall in a tree shape.
Place your Christmas tree near a window facing the street to add Christmas cheer to the street frontage. If you don’t have a tree, then invest in some simple fairy lights to string across the windows instead or one of these fun light up Christmas trees.
A bowl of nuts and traditional nutcracker is a wonderful nod to a European Christmas.
