Christmas brings a lot of celebration and decoration with it and it is understandable too. Because Christmas comes once in a year, everyone wants to do everything they can do to decorate their homes. Christmas decoration is colorless without Christmas lights and Christmas lighting means a large amount of lighting.
When your Christmas decoration provides lighting effects, it gives guests a warm welcome. When planning for your Christmas decoration, carefully choose the place where you will put your Christmas lighting to make sure that every addition makes the greatest impact. Here are some indoor Christmas lighting ideas.
Centerpiece is a great way to bring extra lighting to your dining room or your kitchen without disturbing the whole space. To make a simple centerpiece, place square pillar candles in varying heights on a flat serving dish and place evergreen branches around the candles’ bases for a fresh scent in your dining room. For natural look to your centerpiece, collect bare branches, wind white Christmas lights around the branches and place them on a long serving dish.
For effective indoor Christmas lighting, dress up and decorate plants that are standing in the corners of your room. This is a great way to add creative and unique lighting to your indoor decoration. To do that you can attach strings of light to the branches of the plant.
Use texture and reflective surfaces to take the maximum advantage of the natural light from a large window. Cut your satin ribbon in different lengths and tie a Christmas ornament to the end of each ribbon with a bow. Tie the ends of the ribbons to the curtain rod or anywhere on the top of the window, arranging them such that each one hangs at a different length. During the day time, the ornaments will reflect the natural light from outside, and in the evening, the lights will make a soft glow on the ribbon.
It is a creative way to use small clear Christmas lights in a large ordinary jar. You can buy or rent a special diamond drill bit to drill a hole in the side of the jar near the bottom, large enough to fit the lights through. Use blinking, clear lights for this project. Fill the jar full and use this homemade light for indoor or outdoor evening parties. Place it on the floor, most likely in a corner, and turn it on. Your friends will love it.
Remember, what ever you do for your Christmas decoration will look good if done from your heart. However, you can consult or read articles on the internet for further guidance. Happy holidays.
