I did not think that the theme of Christmas ornaments with their own hands will cause a lot of comments. By the way I agree that topic quite relevant in the period before the New Year celebrations. Besides, you can decorate your house perfectly, and in addition, to take their kids crafts that on winter vacation. Natural crafts with their hands will take a lot of time, effort and patience, but I think it's worth it. You'll look and toys, and think that what you fellows. Christmas toys made with their own hands can serve as a great gift for a holiday, remember this!

For all of us is an important celebration of Christmas. But also an addition to the holiday for us also important decorations for the holiday, the ones that will help us create a home atmosphere of celebration, to create the spirit of Christmas. Of course, we all know about the traditional preparations for Christmas, and this Christmas Tree, garlands, firecrackers, balls on the Christmas tree and much more. The mandatory attribute of each Christmas becomes the time when under the Christmas tree we find the Christmas gifts. Christmas is unbelievable sweet, kind, joyful and magic holiday. Let it be so for everybody!

Thanks to the writer for the idea! I like also really Christmas wreaths, and certainly the acquisition of such a miracle in the shop is always possible. The homemade Christmas wreaths are very apt option. They are so much lovely and each of them is unusual, which makes them especially valuable, not only materially but also spiritually. Of course, to make all this yourself, you need more time, and perhaps most importantly the desire to drop all current affairs and problems and to take up the case. You can buy ready-made decorations at the shop if it is awkward to make yourself.

I like to create and to present some cute and hand made stuff. I can sew some funny toys for children or to make some trinkets, statuettes from plastic and lots of other small and pleasant stuff. Now, after the marriage, l have a rather big family, so its very expensive and ordinary to buy presents. That is why I make every year Christmas presents by myself. It's rather interesting and helpful DIY for me, because I also like to decorate my house with beautiful things, espessially for holidays. I have a little daughter and this is important to provide the Christmas spirit at home.

And as to you such idea? If you want to go back to the fairy tale and feel like a true Princess in a magical castle, engage in festive decor, long thin colorful candles in wrought iron candlesticks and stylish vintage chandeliers. Wide low candle can be placed in deep glass candle holders – a mysterious flickering firelight on the glass will give the house a special charm. Well, if the glass bowl, a vase, a bowl, a bowl for punch or ordinary glasses filled with water, scattering pebbles on the seabed, and release in "free floating" candles-tablets, get a magic light for a romantic Christmas. For more interesting and unexpected effect you can experiment with the color of the water.

I worked at school and saw some funny Christmas trees made of unexpectful materials. The first was created with help of green latex gloves. Doctors use them. It took 20 pairs of gloves. Students filled them with air and fastened to the carton base in shape of cone. The other was made of new packets for household rubbish. They were tore down and also fastened to base, but it was like a trunk with branches. Also students made nice decorations using papier-mache and glitters.Their second hand-made Christmas tree won the first prize among the other schools.

At the present time, holiday decorations are not uncommon, they can always be bought in any store. Jewelry very large number and they are all different in appearance and composition. But it should of course be noted that in spite of such a variety of ornaments, always much nicer when the decorations made with your own hands, you feel pride and great joy that you made yourself from a piece in this festival in the form of homemade decoration. and it costs much cheaper, and if you try, you will look very beautiful.

Christmas Decorations - is an integral part of the holidays. Ornaments can be purchased in the store, and mozha do yourself. The simplest may snowflake ornament, cut from the composite sheet of white paper. This ornament will look much nicer and pardon eye, because cutting it, you put your soul. They can cut both the white paper and colored. Having a lot of jewelry, they can paste over all the windows in the apartment and hang on the chandelier. There will be great to watch snowflakes made of wool. They can decorate a Christmas tree.

My wonderful Christmas tree is stunning bringing magic atmosphere to the house. If i'd got to read this fresh article earlier, i would not have to waste cash on different decorations. Those decoration examples which i can see on the pictures look simple and well-formed, in other words, marvelous! It doesn't require any specific skills to create those cute things. Expenses are minimum cause the materials for creating aren't issue to find. There is plenty of of old stuff forgotten in the basement or attic that can certainly be used for decorations.

I like decorate house for Christmas. Most common decorations do myself, then they get unique, not like others. Most of all I like do Christmas wreath, that can hang on door or on wall. For this I use variety of materials from natural plants and products suitable for human consumption. As basis do ring of cardboard, hoses, wires, rods and so on. Traditionally, wreath on door contains spruce twigs. Make this option with your hands is quite real. This will require harvested branches, wires and additional decor. Christmas wreath can consist of foods. The main condition of this method decoration - all elements must be handled so as not spoil.
