You want a home that screams Christmas wonderland and provides an environment where you
and your loved ones can enjoy the festivities and make memories along the way. After all,
Christmas is all about having fun, celebrating the reason for the season, and spending time with
those you love the most. With a few tips and steps in the right direction, you can create your dream home for Christmas and have fun while doing so…..

Transforming your home for the Christmas Season

Find What you Already Have 
Looking through magazines, social media pages, and blogs will make you think that you need to
buy new Christmas decorations every year. It is easy to go overboard with your spending as
Christmas draws near but the best way to cut down the costs is to take account of what you
have already.
Go on a mini-treasure hunt and look around your house, for items you can use as decorations.
Search the attic, your wardrobe, kitchen, and other areas where you can find valuable items to
use for your decorations. If you have an artificial tree that is still in good shape, there is no need
to go shopping for a new one.
Once you have taken account of what you have in your home, it is time to go shopping. Arm
yourself with a list of the things you need and how much you are willing to spend on them. If you
find yourself tempted by the items on display, it is okay to indulge a bit but don’t forget why you
went shopping or how you will feel when you spend more than you expected.

Look Out for Deals
Explore online stores like Amazon and check the deals on the high street for items you are interested in to see how much you can save. This way, you can get the decorations you need and stay within budget.

Try Something Different
Green and red are the traditional colors used for Christmas, but you can go a different route with
yours. Metallic colors like silver, blue, rose gold, and more, can give you the modern Christmas
décor that you may want.
Using silver decorations and different shades of blue can give you a winter-themed Christmas.
Pair this with some clear lights and use some fake snow for your Christmas tree decorations.

Christmas Lights
Lights make your decorations come alive and can create a magical moment to share with your
family. When you have finished adding your tree decorations and turn the lights on, the right set of
lights can tie the look together and make the tree the absolute centerpiece –  the definition of Christmas spirit.
There are two types of light bulbs which are incandescent light bulbs and LED lights. The
incandescent lights are more traditional and they produce a warm color that could complement your tree. However, they consume quite a bit of power and have a warmer temperature which makes your decorations prone to burning.
LED lights are preferred by many as they are cost and energy-efficient, and a bit cheaper than
incandescent bulbs.
From these two light bulbs, you can find various designs of Christmas lights such as string lights, compact lights, icicle lights, and net lights. You should have at least two of these designs to use in different parts of your home.

The Goal
The purpose of decorating is to make your home look nice and welcoming for the season which
is why you shouldn’t aim for perfection. There is beauty even in the little imperfections and the
most important thing is that you have fun while doing it. To make the process enjoyable recruit
your friends, children, and family members to help you out.
You can create fun homemade items to include in your decorations or any antique items you
find in the store or attic. This tends to add more meaning to your decorations as it becomes
special and personal to you.
If you can, add other elements of nature in your décor apart from your Christmas tree. Have
some pinecones, mini trees, wreaths, and flowers in different places to bring nature into your
home.
