You don’t have to shop till you drop, to make things merry and bright for this season. Try these easy Christmas interior hacks to make your holiday awesome, magical and memorable without breaking the bank:
1. Hang wreaths nail free in your home:
If you want to make your house look pretty and yet not undergo the hassle of putting up nails you try this simple trick. Just purchase some command hooks (you can find these easily online or at a hardware store). Place the hook upside down on your door, tie a ribbon around the wreath, lay it over the top of the door and then loop it over the door.
2. Wrap it Up:
If you have old brown paper lying around in the home, don’t let it go to waste. You can optimally utilize it by taking some brown paper and tie up the gifts under the tree. You can wrap different toys and trinkets in brown paper bags adorned with baker’s twine and alphabet monogram gift tags to offer up a rustic charm with a personalized touch.
3. Hide Spent Bulbs:
If your pre-lit tree doesn’t light up fully, use sneaky styling tricks to camouflage dark sections. Redirect branches with working lights, hang sparkly ornaments to reflect the light and go extra heavy on the garland. When shopping for lights next time, remember that you'll need about 100 lights for every foot and a half of tree height. For a super-bright look, double or triple that.
4. Fake a fancy centerpiece:
This is a very smart idea to highlight the décor of the place and yet save on spending that extra buck. You can think of purchasing a supermarket potted plant such as minimums or a Christmas cactus, and place it (pot and all) in a large bowl. Fill the space around the pot with whole nuts, mini pinecones, ornaments or fresh fruit. This will give your place a fancy and sophisticated look without having to shell out a lot of cash.
5. Jazz up the lights with spray paint:
We often find that although lights give the place a breath of fresh air and make it look brighter, the cords of the light are a huge turn off and may spoil the entire look of the place. In this case, add some life to your cords by getting creative with some spray paint. You can use metallic colors like gold, silver or bronze to make it match with your home, giving it a makeover and stunning addition to your home.
6. Whipped cream floats:
Christmas is the perfect time for you to relax with your family and spend that quality time with some delicious hot chocolate to sip on. Don’t think it can get any better than this?
All you need is to make some whipped cream floats to add that holiday cheer to your evening. Make your hot chocolates stand out with fantastic whipped cream frozen floats. They are the perfect drink for the cold weather.
7. Candy cane dust:
Christmas parties are something which truly livens up our mood and offers a getaway from the daily mundane of our busy lifestyle. If you are hosting a Christmas party and you are looking to add that holiday feel to it just sprinkle some candy cane dust over the sweet condiments.
It is a truly brilliant idea which is easy to make. Use a food processor to pulverize candy canes into beautiful dust and sprinkle it onto ice cream, cookies, hot chocolate, mousse and more.
