5 Ways to Personalize your Christmas Ornaments
Looking for a good way to save money during the holidays? Why not consider making custom Christmas ornaments on your own or work with the kids in making personalized Christmas ornaments? You will not only be able to save, but you will also be able to bond. In this post, we will have a quick look at some of the customized decors that you can easily make.
- Christmas Cards
Cards will not only make thoughtful gifts but will also be excellent décor. If you are inviting friends over at home, prepare a card for each one of them. Think of short Christmas greetings to incorporate or funny Christmas card messages if you want to inject humor. Rather than keeping these cards in envelopes, use them as a décor for the tree, garland, or wreath. When your friends come over to visit, all that they have to do is to look for their name and pick the card that belongs to them.
- Christmas Balls
When it comes to ornaments that are found in a Christmas tree, balls are perhaps the most common. Give it a twist by personalizing the balls. You can use those you have from the past year. All that you need to do is to paint it to make it look as good as new. This can also be an easy art project for kids. The Christmas tree is sure to be more meaningful when you see ornaments that are hand-painted by your little ones.
In most households, Christmas décor will not be complete without hanging a wreath in the front door. You can make your own wreath from scratch using greens that you can collect outdoors. Otherwise, you can buy a wreath from a store and have it personalized. Spice up a plain wreath by adding paper cutouts, balls, candy canes, pinecones, flowers, lights, ribbons, and succulents, among other things.
Especially if you live in a house with kids, Christmas décor will not be complete without hanging stockings. After all, this is where Santa will be leaving his gift for anyone who has been nice, right? You can buy a plain stocking from a store and decorate it the way you want. A good idea is to spell out the name of the kids in each stocking so that they will know that it is theirs. If you want to be more creative, you can even use your embroidery or quilting skills!
The art of Japanese paper folding will also make a good creative idea this season. One of the easiest origami projects for your décor is a Christmas tree. A snowflake or a star will also be great. If you can things to be more complicated, you can even make a reindeer out of papers. Go online and research YouTube videos that will provide you with a comprehensive guide on how to successfully accomplish such a project.
With our suggestions above, you do not have to spend a lot to make the house look and feel like Christmas!
