Children love to help put up ornaments and decorate the Christmas tree! This can be a fun activity for the whole family. It is usually easy, but it can sometimes be stressful, especially if you’re decorating a new home for the first time or it is your first time decorating a home.
- Make sure you put up and decorate a Christmas tree! This is a very common fixture to Christmas decorating. If you are allergic to pine, you can always put up a fake plastic tree, but you should make sure you have some kind of tree. If you have a small apartment or small living room, you can put up a smaller tree. Make sure your Christmas tree isn’t too tall.
- Add some lights to the outside of your home and to your living room. Even simply lining the roof can make a big difference in how your home looks from the street. Your living room should have lights on the tree at least. If you want to line along the corner where wall meets ceiling, this is a good choice.
- Put out something like a nativity scene or Santa and reindeer. Having a theme for your decorations, especially for anything you put in the yard or on the roof can make a huge difference in how your Christmas decorations look.
- Put some gifts under the tree before Christmas Eve night. This simply adds to the way the Christmas tree looks in your living room and it makes your family more curious until they are allowed to open it.
- Add some decorations to the other rooms! You can put up something like candy cane nightlights in the windows of bedrooms and Christmas towels in the kitchen. These little touches will make your home much more cheerful without going over the top in your decoration schemes.
