Christmas time is the perfect time for putting aside the excuses and get into making your own cards. With some planning in the weeks before, making cards doesnt need to be overwhelming, too expensive or too time consuming. And the best ways to make cute cards and use your time wisely is to involve the children.
Look at the candles and holders once they are on the tree - Make sure you have positioned the candles so they are 100% clear of anything that could catch fire. This includes another limb, other candles, garlands, tinsel or nearby Christmas ornaments. Pay special attention to higher branches. Are they hanging over the candle in such a way that they could catch fire when the candle is lit? If so, you must move the candle.
Indoor and outdoor Christmas decorations can also add elegance and holiday cheer to your home. From outdoor lights and simple lawn decorations to indoor small decor pieces, you can easily update your Christmas decorations with a few new pieces. Choose places in your home to add a holiday splash, like bookshelves, coffee tables, dressers, end tables and shelves. Small decorations to adorn these places include holiday candles, nutcracker statues, holiday figurines, nativity sets and garlands. You can also get some great holiday throw pillows for a couch or chairs.
You can choose one of two kinds of candle holders: the Clip On Christmas Tree Candle Holder, which you clamp on to a branch; or the Pendulum Christmas Tree Candle Holder, which has a stem and a counterweight that you use to balance the holder as it hangs on the Christmas tree. Theres no right or wrong. Pick the model you like best.
Another easy tip for updating your Christmas decorations is to purchase a new wreath for your front door or mantle. Christmas wreaths make classy focal points that complement Christmas trees. Pick a wreath that has a beautiful bow and some other tasteful decorations to add an extra touch of holiday spirit to your decor. You can choose a decorative, fake wreath that will keep for years, or a fresh wreath that you can display for the month of December and a few weeks after, depending on the type and care needed.
Carefully attach the Candle Holders to your Christmas Tree. Put them on last -- after Christmas bulbs, ornaments, garlands and other decorations. If you are using Clip On Christmas Tree Candle Holders, position them on a limb that is big enough to support them (theyre not heavy) but not so thick that the clamp cant bite into the limb. The Christmas Candle Clips have a swivel base.
