With less than 100 days before Christmas, is your condo decor ready for the holidays? An important aspect of Christmas decorations is the tree. Up your holiday game by embellishing your tree with unique decors. Here are 8 personalized Christmas decorations to make your tree extra special.
1. Hand-painted letter ornaments
Like condo living, decorating your Christmas tree can be a fun family affair. What better way to decorate your tree than with hand-painted letter ornaments that you and your family have designed? The letters can spell out seasonal themes such as joy and love. The letters can also be used for your names hung around the tree. Talk about unique and personalized Christmas decor! Hand-painted ornaments are very easy to make. Prepare the materials in advance for an untroubled artistic session. Crafts materials can include paint, brushes, glitters, strings, glue, paper, and blank wood.
2. Aglow with varieties of LED lights
Lighting is a very important element of any Christmas tree. You want your tree to look bright, inviting, and sparkly. Even simple tree decorations require proper lighting to elevate the mood. Whether you want small or big lights, LED bulbs are great because they are safe, functional, and economical. LED bulbs last so much longer than ordinary bulbs. They come in a vast array of colors and are very easy to combine. Consider fairy lights if you want something dainty and chic. Mini string lights are one of the most popular varieties because they are versatile. If you’re planning on having a big tree, you can’t go wrong with net lights and tree wrap lights.
2. Gifts wrapped with love and beauty
Condo living in the Philippines come alive during the holidays. With personalized wrapping, your gifts will look nice and sweet not only for the receiver but also as a decorative element for your Christmas tree. Avoid the usual gift wrappers that you buy at the mall. A simple brown paper can look amazing as a wrapper if you add details such as leaves and natural materials. When placed under your Christmas tree, specially-wrapped gifts will add a lot of decorative charm and value.
4. Marvel-ous trinkets for the kids and kids-at-heart
Spending the holidays in a condo community is special for a lot of people. The modern facilities are great for family gatherings and party with friends. Whether you rent or own a condo, you can design your holiday decor according to your liking. For example, if you and your family are fans of Marvel characters, why not use them as trinkets for your tree? This quirky touch can look fun and lighthearted. While going traditional is alright, a modern-day Christmas decor can feel closer to the heart. These trinkets can also double up as toys that you can gift to kids and kids-at-heart. While trinkets are cute, remember that safety is a must. Avoid trinkets that break or detach too easily as these can be a choking hazard for young children.
5. Holiday mirth with sensational scents
Smell is a powerful sense that is evocative and inspiring. A lot of people associate Christmas with the smell in the air. Did you know that you can heighten the holiday mirth by making your Christmas tree smell amazing? You can bring Christmas closer to home by filling your condo with your favorite holiday scents. Adding cinnamon sticks and pine to your tree can fill your condo with a relaxing smell. Tie cinnamon and pine in a bow or attach them to other ornaments for an uplifting aroma. For tropical countries like the Philippines, natural Christmas trees are difficult, if not impossible, to grow. Using cinnamon and pine as decorative elements can make your artificial tree smell like the real thing.
6. Go vintage for a traditional yet special look
Christmas is a festival that commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, who was born in a manger. This traditional detail can serve as inspiration for your holiday decor. Going vintage with your tree is like a nod to the roots of Christmas. There are plenty of stunning vintage Christmas decor to make your condo feel special. Nostalgic metal trinkets and decals will add the charm of an old-fashioned Christmas. You can also use materials like straw and wood. By using your imagination, you can create something contemporary yet traditional with vintage decor.
7. A tree that’s so good, you can eat it!
Sweeten your Christmas tree by decorating it with candies. It’s a fun and delicious way for the family to enjoy the holidays. Caroling takes places in a lot of DMCI Homes properties, and instead of giving out money, why not offer candies? Whether it’s candy cane or chocolate, Christmas candies on a tree can fill you and your guests with cheer. Since some candies can melt quickly, it’s important that you select those which can last longer. You can also put candies in a small bag for convenience. Candy bags are easy to give away and look amazing on a tree.
8. Christmas socks to fill with gifts and happiness
Is your condo beginning to look like Christmas? If you’re having a hard time with decor, adding Christmas socks can transform the look of your tree from bland to wow. After all, you need something where Santa can slip his gift. Baby Christmas socks look adorable, but even adults can definitely have a sock of their own! Personalize the socks by adding the names of family members. Christmas socks also make a great gift idea for neighbors and the employees of your condo.
Spending Christmas with family and friends can feel extra special with the right decor. With these 8 personalized Christmas tree decorations ideas, your holiday can truly be merry and magnificent.
