It's the most magical time of the year…
Before the New Year's and the most beautiful night of the year, you need to properly start decorating your home. For a whole year there were boxes with New Year's paraphernalia on the mezzanines, and now it's time to get them! Get out the toys for the Christmas tree, hang garlands, arrange Christmas installations and a variety of themed items on the shelves.figurines. If you are not using an artificial Christmas tree, take care of the cleanliness of your home and the durability of a living tree - buy and decorate a New Year's beauty a day or two before the last day of the year.
Christmas paraphernalia is incredibly important for creating a special atmosphere in your home. Until you have installed a beautiful Christmas tree in the place of honor in your apartment, start decorating your home with store-bought and homemade decorations.
Paper garlands - simple and beautiful
Agree, in order to feel the approach of the holiday, it is enough to decorate the house with winter decorations, such as garlands. Hang an electric garland around the perimeter of the room. It is best to use such devices that run on batteries, as they do not depend on the location of outlets in the rooms and save your electricity costs. If you do not have such garlands, provide your wired jewelry with access to outlets.
After you have decorated the room with purchased garlands, start creating New Year's paraphernalia with your own hands. Paper garlands will be the easiest to perform and the most cost-effective. You can create completely different decorations using only scissors, glitter and glue, sometimes adding a stapler to your assistants. From paper, you can create a wide variety of garlands - in the form of rings (as we were taught in childhood), snowflakes, Christmas trees, snowmen, as well as any other forms. In addition to the form, you can choosealso color, and the presence or absence of sparkles.
Needles in home decoration
New Year's paraphernalia is not only something made of artificial materials, but also a variety of wreaths and garlands made of coniferous twigs. It is this smell that we associate with the onset of the New Year, and products made from this material bring comfort and warmth to the house.
In order to create a fir branch decoration that will last you for several weeks, you need to tie small twigs to the base of wire, cardboard or foam using fishing line or rope. After that, add some bright ribbons, small toys, and spray-on fake snow to the ends of the branches, creating a really Christmas decoration. You can hang such a garland or wreath over a door or fireplace and on the railing of the stairs if you live in a private house.
Symbol of 2018: put it to good use
In 2018, the Yellow Earth Dog became the symbol. That is why you can choose toys and decorations for rooms in yellow, brown, orange, and also in gold to appease the patroness of the year. It will be quite an interesting solution to add a few gingerbread cookies in the form of a bone or a dog's face to the Christmas tree. Since the element of this symbol is Earth, then the decoration should be as “mundane” as possible, not spiritual. Add gold decorations to the Christmas tree, a few bills tied with a string. It will also be nice if you make New Year's paraphernalia from beads - balls, gold-colored stars - and hang them on the Christmas tree.
Notforget the windows
