Whether you are decorating a vast office or if you live in a tiny home, here are some tips that can bring a warm, welcoming, and seasonal spirit anywhere. Bring Christmas cheer to any space in the home, at work, or elsewhere, with these five suggestions:
1. Scented Wax Warmer
Create an atmosphere and set the mood with a simple and easy-to-use wax warmer. These often rely on a lightbulb to melt the wax that you place inside, which means they are energy-efficient. Choose your favorite fragranced wax melts—from evergreen and pine to cinnamon and sugar cookies—to enjoy your own distinct memories of this sentimental season.
2. Simmering Potpourri
Don't have a wax warmer? How about a slow cooker or crockpot? Try making your own simmering holiday potpourri using your favorite spices and ingredients that you can easily and inexpensively find at any grocery store. Things like citrus, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and cranberries all smell amazing when slowly heating in the pot, and it brings a traditional and delicious aroma to your surroundings!
3. Festive Front Door
For a festive touch on your holiday décor, wrap the front door like a gift. This is an inexpensive and easy way to create a whimsical entrance that both kids and adults will enjoy. All you need is a large roll of holiday wrapping paper, tape, ribbon, and a big bow. Follow online tutorials to construct the faux present on your own doors. Don't forget to leave an opening in your gift wrap for the doorknob.
4. Fairy Lights
A sure sign of the season is the twinkling and bright lights that you see on trees, around wreaths, and on doors; they are everywhere this time of the year. Create your own festive flair using inexpensive and battery-operated fairy lights, which can be strung anywhere. Indoors or out, fairy lights are an uncomplicated option that bring a bit of cheer as well as illumination wherever you choose to install them. Look online for variations that can be charged with a USB cable.
5. Virtual Fireplace
A roaring fire in a fireplace is another cozy sight during the holidays. Don't have a fireplace? Try a virtual or video fireplace instead. There are many apps and some free versions on YouTube that mimic the welcoming glow of the fire. Many are accompanied by holiday music too.
Trigger holiday memories with your sense of smell or try some new décor to bring about holiday cheer. Use these five suggestions to bring festive flair to any space this season. Visit a local shop to learn more about these ideas, including scented wax warmers.
