What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word Christmas? Christmas frequently reminds us of snow. Why not create a winter wonderland by crafting snowflakes from white paper and attaching them to the insides of your windows? Spray-on snow washes up easily when it is sprayed on the bottoms of windows and looks like freshly fallen snow. Why not add white batting on the floor to give the appearance of even more snow. Decorate your trees with old fashioned packaged icicles or use a retro, white tree to continue the snow effect
Homemade ornaments add a special touch to your Christmas windows. Many crafts stores have ornament kits that help you create your own ornaments. Attach ornament hooks to small toys and memorabilia and hang them from any of your stylish curtain rods from Continental Window Fashions. Holly and mistletoe on tables and other surfaces serve as lovely centerpieces, and candles in the center of the table are lovely as well. But you should never leave a lit candle unattended. Fill you’re the corners of your living room with poinsettias and other red flowers and greenery. Of course, there’s always the ubiquitous Elf on the Shelf. Tuck him in between some greenery on your curtain rod to dress up your draperies.
In other words, let’s not overdo it with the preparations. A careful, thoughtful look at our home will suffice. A few touches here and there will save the day, and your sanity.
