Christmas Decorating Ideas 2012
Make a different Christmas wreath this year with Pepperberry sticks. Pepperberry sticks are easily available in the market or else get some pepperberries, insert them to the vine forms and secure with glues to create alluring wreaths. These bright-red pepperberries make a Christmas wreath, which is different from the traditional ones. You may insert pepperberries into normal green wreaths or place them in an alternate pattern to create the magic of contrast.
Centerpieces are a significant part of Christmas decorations. Try a different Orange-fruit centerpiece this year to create innovative and appealing decorations. You need not have extreme artistic skills or carving skills for this; it is so easy that even your small kids can do the deed. Take an orange and put a simple yet catchy rubber band around it. This is the base for the artwork you are going to do. Pierce the peel along the rubber band with some pointed object and place a clove such that its bud remains outside. Do the same along both sides of the rubber band. Put another rubber band on the same orange such that it crisscrosses the first. Make 3-4 such rings on the orange and then place it in an artistic glass bowl for display.
Gifts are indispensable to Christmas celebrations. Some people even use gifts to decorate their trees. Why not try making a Christmas wreath with small presents? It would be really a different decor. You may use same gift wrap on all gifts so that you create a monochromatic wreath or else, wrap the gifts with papers of different colors so that you can get a colorful wreath. Gifts of same size are preferred. Small jewelry boxes or containers of even size can be used for this purpose. You can either take a readymade wreath and sporadically attach these gifts to create a semi-modern look, or take some wire in the shape of a wreath and decorate it lavishly using your tiny gift parcels for a full blown modernistic look.
Beautifully wrapped gifts steal your mind. They not only provide you with a visual treat but also evoke curiosity about what is inside the box. Wrap some boxes, preferably of various sizes and shapes using giftwraps of different colors and arrange them over the tables or in the corners of the room or just drop them in a 'carefully careless' manner around the room. Placing them under the Christmas tree is also a classic, yet still in vogue option.
