Christmas decor, as the popular catchphrase goes, are gifts that keep on giving. Some holiday pieces are so beautiful that it would be a shame to simply keep them in storage. Treetopia lets you in on a few tips on how to reuse Christmas decorations that you can display all year long.
1. Use Christmas lights as decorative lighting
The delicate, comforting glow of Christmas lights look great any time of the year. To make your bedroom feel warmer and cozier, hang strands of Christmas lights on your walls. You can also wrap them around your bed’s metal frame, or arrange them against the wall to form a bright faux headboard. For an even more dazzling touch, use holiday lights to outline your window frames and illuminate your mirror.
If you have a garden, place strings of clear lights on the trees or potted plants that line the path to your front door. Mount clear or multi-colored Christmas lights on window sills and patio covers to keep your home’s façade looking fun and festive.
