This Christmas, show your concern to the environment by being more mindful of your décor. Clueless about how to make this possible? Keep on reading and we will share some tips on how to be eco-friendly with your holiday décor.
- A Living Christmas Tree
For most homes, the season is not complete without a tree. Luckily, you do not need to buy one that is made of plastic. If you want to be eco-friendly, go for a real tree. It has a festive smell that will make the Christmas ambiance more evident in the house. You can also use almost any tree, such as those in pots. The good thing is that you can plant it in the garden once Christmas is over.
- Edible Displays
This is especially true if you have kids at home. You can hang candy canes and chocolates in the Christmas tree. Other good ideas include stained glass biscuits, gingerbread house, sugar cookies, cranberry popcorn garlands, crispy rice balls, meringue wreaths, and peppermint snowflakes. These decors can double as the perfect gifts and prizes for party games. Speaking of the latter, be sure to come up with fun Christmas games, making sure that your guests will enjoy your Christmas party game ideas.
- Paint Pinecones
If you live in an area where pinecones are common, start collecting them. Once you have them on hand, paint these pinecones with red, green, and gold, which are holiday colors. Use these pinecones as decors for your tree or wreath. Better yet, you can also use it as a creative table centerpiece for your Christmas dinner.
- Use Paper
Ever heard of origami? This refers to the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. It might sound intimidating, but it is actually easy. You can use old newspapers or magazines. Use Christmas origami crafts as décor, such as Santa, tree cards, fox box, and stars, among others.
- Recycled Décor
It will also be a good idea to recycle the décor that you have already used last year. A few touch-ups will make them look as good as new. For an eco-friendly Christmas, you can use old toys as ornaments in a Christmas tree, as well as old accessories or jewelry. You can also use scrap ribbons or old Christmas cards. Be creative when it comes to how to give life to old things to make it a beautiful décor for Christmas.
This is not just the season to be jolly but to be eco-friendly as well. With the tips that have been mentioned above, you can decorate your house for the holidays while demonstrating your concern to the environment at the same time.
