Choose from our picks of really cool Christmas tree decoration ideas for this year
It’s that time of the year again when the air is filled with sounds of Christmas carols wafting in, delicious breads being baked and a happy sense of being. But it also is filled with unending guests, revelries and a bit of chaos if you please. Of our favourite authors, Maya Angelou once said, “I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.” So we decided to try our hand at some not-so-traditional trees but fabulous nonetheless, and quick and mess-free, needless to say. Only rule to follow: Work with the triangular/ pyramid shape. Browse through our gallery to know more…
Calling all book lovers – transform your bookshelf into a stylish Christmas tree by arranging your books into a simple triangle. Work with similar coloured spines, throw in some candles or ornaments and you are set.
Work the industrial chic vibe with a mini tree in an aluminum bucket. You can add in warmth using a rug or a dhurrie, some hurricanes with candles and a few floor cushions.
If stark is how you like it – then work the triangular frames with just a few candles. You can put a large frame with some thoughtful quote; it will help soften the look.
Another thing that we feel works really well is a cluster of pretty things. You can have your carpenter cut you a triangular shaped ply with a stand. Add some shelves, use similar shaped objects that simply hint at the formation of a tree, line your ornaments and you are well on your way to spread some cheer.
A simple but striking option is to work with a wireframe. This is best for small spaces as it does away with the need for a bulky tree. You can glue together ornaments of your choice and place it inside the wireframe.
Not only do they occupy a lot of space but are also prone to catching dust and microbes due to moisture. Here’s a list of ten things to help you keep your woollens as nice as new until the next winter
