You don’t need to have new tree decorations each year either. You can make your own ornaments from cloth, paper, or create and bake ones from biodegradable dough and paint them. You can also see what your parents or grandparents might want to pass on. There isn’t anything more nostalgic than ornaments from your childhood hanging from your tree.
You could spend time with your children and string popcorn for to place on the tree to decorate it. When the Christmas season is over, then you can hang it outside for the birds to eat. Plus, bringing in pine boughs, pinecones, and even chestnuts to decorate your mantle or entrance way will carry the scent of nature inside.
If you do have children, another fun activity, that helps with decoration inspiration is going to see light displays in your community! Think about it this way – it can be a fun activity for the entire family, and if you’re not putting up as many lights in your home, your technically saving some energy with praising the community holiday displays. Often times must-see holiday lights can be seen at local parks, zoos, and even historical buildings.
