Have you noticed how pervasive Christmas on Steroids has become in the last few years? Ever glitzier high-tech decorations, over-the-top LED Christmas tree lights and gigunda outdoor Christmas displays are dominating the holiday like never before. Although Bigger-and-Better is the order of the day when it comes to Christmas tree decorations, some people are opting out and trying to re-capture the simple delights of an old-fashioned Christmas.
The first way that you can update your Christmas decorations is to purchase cute holiday rugs and towels to accent your decor. Choose rugs that complement each other for your front door, kitchen sink, bathroom and more. Also choose holiday-themed towels for your kitchen and bathroom that will carry the Christmas theme throughout your home. Towels and rugs with snowmen, snowflakes, Christmas trees, poinsettias and more make great additions to any holiday decor.
Adjust it when the holder and candle are in place on the tree to make sure the candle is perfectly vertical. For Pendulum Holders, loop the stem over a branch that is heavy enough to hold the weight and be sure there is enough room below for the counterweight at the end of the stem to freely dangle.
Set the kids up with their artwork and old cards and get them to cut their work down to a size that will fit neatly onto your card. If you are using a standard card size of 148mm x 105mm (A4 cut in half, then folded in half) a square of 90mmx90mm will fit nicely. Accuracy isnt important; it will add to the overall charm of the cards. Get a pile of these and keep the leftover pieces too - they can be used to create a collage.
Its not hard. One of the best ways to step back from the brink, slow down and restore some sanity to the holidays is to ditch the electric lights and LED Christmas lights and go green. Replace your energy-gobbling lights with Real Christmas Tree Candles. Or use fewer electric lights and add Christmas Candles. Either way, you wont regret it. The sight of your Christmas tree awash in the natural glow of real candlelight will stop your friends and family in their tracks and make them go weak in the knees. Its radiant and indescribably beautiful.
