Think it’s too early to prepare for Christmas? Think again because it’s exactly six months ’til the next one

It’s officially six months before Christmas day today. While you think it may still be too early to think about Christmas, time does fly and the next thing you know, December has arrived. To prepare for the holidays, you can decorate little by little, as if your décor is mimicking the approach of Christmas. Here are ways on how you can prepare for Christmas little by little:

Start with the Walls

Since you may not want to make it too obvious that you’re already preparing for Christmas, you don’t have to put up wreaths and garlands right away. You can just begin by preparing your walls for the décor and design they will soon have. This year is the perfect time for turning your home a little bit Christmas-y every month since the color of the year is emerald. You can paint your walls green, use green décor, or simply hang up emerald green curtains and you’re on your way there.

Treetopia shows you how to create something fabulous out of old Christmas cards

When Thanksgiving ends, the influx of Christmas cards starts to pour in within weeks. Each one is unique in the sense that it contains imprints of those fantastic people whom we hold dear and who took the time to scribble messages to warm our hearts during the chilly Christmas season.  Instead of stuffing all those gorgeous Christmas cards in a box, never knowing when they will be touched by the sun’s rays again, channel your creative energy into preserving those little cards filled with love and sentiments. Treetopia has thought of ways on how you can give your old Christmas cards new life.

Wall of Fame

While we all say that every unique Christmas card is a treasure, it’s impossible not to have a favorite among your collection. Choose an empty area in your home, perhaps a small wall space or at the back of one of your doors, and display all your favorite Christmas cards in that area. You can even purchase a large cork or laminated board where the cards will be tacked or taped if you don’t want to stick the cards directly on your wall. Name this space the Christmas Cards Wall of Fame.

Christmas is just around the corner, so the chance of coming across a home that isn’t decorated is slim. While some homes display classic and elegant décor, there are some people who would prefer to personalize their décor by displaying weird Christmas decorations. If you’re looking for ways to embrace some weird and wonderful ideas for your home this Christmas, Treetopia has some ideas for you.

Cartoon-inspired Décor

Go with decorations inspired by cartoon characters in Christmas gear to fill your home with lighthearted fun. It would certainly be a weird but wonderful sight for an adult’s home to be filled with youthful amusement.

Christmas is always a festive time and many people look forward to getting their homes ready for the holidays. Unfortunately, the season also tends to yield a significant amount of waste because of discarded ornaments. Recycling old decor not only contributes greatly to the environment, it also allows homeowners to cut back on their expenses. Here are a few ideas you can try.

Display ornaments in a glass bowl

Display in glass bowls or jars

Ornaments in different colors can be used as table centerpieces or accents to shelves and window sills. Place an assortment of glass balls in clear jars and display on top of a shelf or side table. You can also place a cluster of ornaments in a layered crystal bowl as a table centerpiece.
