It’s Christmas time and beautiful décor, lights, and magical displays are everywhere! When it comes to decorating your home it might be important to you to incorporate decorations that both you and your children will adore. But in order to accomplish this there should be a good mix of kid-friendly décor and adult Christmas accessories that you love as well. Finding eco-friendly products might also be on your mind and here are a few ideas for you to glam up your home through Christmas and the New Year to come!
It’s fun and enjoyable to add glittery branches to a vase, winter wonderland setting, or whatever else you can think of in your home. Lamplust offers fabulous holiday décor items that will work perfectly for the holidays. These glamorous elements will also bring you through the New Year and beyond too. Find lighted branches and more that will work seamlessly into your interior and as your kids glance at the twinkled branches, they’ll be delighted too.
Create Strings of Popcorn and Paper Chains
If you feel like being creative with your kids, show them how to make strings of popcorn or paper chains. Cranberries also work to string along with the popcorn or separately depending on the string pattern you’d like to create. Then have them incorporate the chains on the branches of their own tree or even your family tree! They also can draw and color on the paper that attaches to each chain or add glitter to make it extra glamorous as well. This is also a very eco-friendly alternative to tinsel because you’ll be reusing materials that may otherwise be thrown out.
Purchase Recycled Ornaments on Etsy
Have you thought about making your own ornaments with your kids or purchasing them on a handmade site such as Etsy? Find ornaments made with organic materials on a seller’s site such as Recyledparts by Jennifer or gain inspiration on how to make your own. Fill your tree with green ornaments that save the earth and add something special to your holiday décor. With the lights and sparkly elements, eco-friendly ornaments on your tree will be the perfect touch!
There are countless of ways to bring some extra holiday cheer this Christmas. Having your children participate in decorating your home with sparkly elements will make them happy and you extra joyous as you observe their cheer. Now grab a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy this special time of year and all of the celebrations and twinkled lights that come with it.
