How To Improve Your Home Ready For Christmas

November 14, 2020

Christmas in Lockdown is likely to be a bit different from previous years. Most places have some kind of pandemic restrictions in force, meaning that Christmas markets and even family gatherings are unlikely in some places. On the upside, there is nothing to stop us pouring all our inspiration into the home this year to make it extra special. Read on to discover some nice Christmas Renovation ideas to use in your home this winter. 

Here’s Some Christmas Renovation Tips:

A Front Door Ribbon 

Turn your home into a giant Christmas gift by wrapping the door in a ribbon. This is a simple budget-friendly way to bring attention to your home in the neighbourhood and show off your Christmas spirit. It is also very easy to do; all you need is a strip of ribbon and some drawing pins. Save ribbon by measuring your front door horizontally and vertically. Secure the ribbon top and bottom, and on both sides, from the outside, it will look as though it’s wrapped completely. You could also use ribbons as a door handle decoration inside your home.

A Home-made Wreath 

The Christmas wreath has its roots in ancient European cultures that used the natural environment to make seasonal decorations. Why not continue this tradition by foraging in the local area for holly, pine cones, and twigs. It’s far more satisfying to create your own wreath from the local natural world rather than buy one plastic or pre-made from the supermarket. You can create anything from home-made wreaths to Christmas Tree baubles. 

A Christmas Room 

It’s enjoyable to decorate your home at Christmas and deck the proverbial halls with bounds of holly, but what about organising a room that’s dedicated to the season. By containing your Christmas decoration in one room, it makes things easier to organise before and after the event. You could even renovate a room using Evolution Money. Over the years you will become adept at setting up the Christmas room and taking it down making the process less of a chore. Once set up; however, your Christmas room should be a magical place, warm, colourful, and with plenty of candles. 

Seasonal Plants 

Everyone knows that Christmas is about the Tree, the Wreath, and the Holly. But you don’t have to be limited by tradition. Why not turn up the cheer factor inside and outside your home with plants and flowers fit for the season. Hanging baskets on the front door are excellent for this; they bring colour and festive cheer even in the dead of winter. Hardy plants such as Heather are good for this. Poinsettias are also in season and look very festive with their bright red leaves. 

Tasteful Decorations

You want your Christmas renovation to improve your home but not by using the same decorations as everyone else. You know the kind! Thankfully, many tasteful and original ones can be found online or at festive market stalls. Think of paper lantern stars and handmade Christmas Tree decorations. If you buy one tasteful decoration every year, you will build up a nice collection of tasteful decorations that can stay in the family for generations. 

How are you planning to decorate your home for Christmas this year?

      I love these ideas! I think one of the things people have been able to do by having more time at home is to think about the little projects they can do to make a better environment for themselves. I have a few ideas to add… you can easily do craft projects like paper chains which can be biodegradable v’s plastic decorations, make snowflakes and create home made gifts.

        Too right! Without franchises open too, it is a great time to support local businesses and become more ethical. Thank you for your contribution!

    These are helpful tips! I am a big Christmas fan and because my birthday is in early December I’ve received a lot of holiday decor as gifts. One of my greatest joys is watching Amaryllis bulbs grow and bloom in time for Christmas. I love have a little Christmas decor in each room.

      How lovely! I love that every room has a Christmas decorative item, it makes everything slightly different for a temporary period of time. Thanks for reading!

    These are some great ideas and ones that are accessible to everyone! I really like the look of a homemade wreath although I’ve never done one myself so I’m sure it wouldn’t look that good haha x
