1. Hang a Wreath on the Front Door
A wreath is usually hanged on the front door but the outside. Well, a wreath is the first thing that welcomes your visitors as well as gives a holiday mood. But, did you know you could do the same, but this time hang it on the inside?
The good thing is, it doesn’t have to be bulky as the one you’d place outside. Make a circle with wire and attach a curved wire with which you’ll hang the wreath. Get eucalyptus branches and curve them around the circular object. Add some cotton stalks, and there you have it, a wreath you can hang on the door.
Another way of having a wreath is by getting some twigs and a rope and make a shape of a wreath.
2. A Christmas Tree
Although you’re looking for new ideas, a Christmas tree is a traditional but a grand idea you shouldn’t leave out. But, to make it elegant, you can change from symmetrical kind of tree to asymmetrical. Set up a tree and decorate it. Maintain your colour scheme but try and match everything else in your house. If you’ve painted greyish or blue, put those colours on the tree. If your room is small to fit a tree, consider painting a 3-D tree.
Another alternative is to make a dowel Christmas tree. Ideally, you can turn the handbag or sweater stand near your door into a dowel tree. Hook small ball of various colours on the dowel and strategically place it where people can see it as they come to your house.
It’s essential to have multiple alternative so, another way of having a tree is getting several branches of different sizes and attaching then on a wall with the smallest on the top. Place the branches horizontally and make a tree-shaped illusion only that it will look like a Christmas tree.
