Clever ideas for Christmas tree decoration
Nothing can be more personal than a homemade decoration. You will leave your touch to the most important – the Christmas tree. Get some glittering paint and draw swirls, snowflakes on your Christmas balls. Thus each one of them will have a boutique look. You can push your imagination even further and transform an old sweater into warm and festive Christmas tree decoration. Homemade cookies are a perfect tree decoration but you need to keep them from the kids. Use salt-dough which is easy to work with and is not edible. You can cut our all the different Christmas symbols – snowflakes, stars, snowman, Santa and with some ribbons you will have the cutest tree ornaments. If you wanted a really personal decor do not limit yourself to colours, themes and styles – the holiday spirit and the family – this is Christmas all about.
