5 Helpful Tips To Decorate New Construction Homes for Christmas
With Christmas season in full swing, everyone should find time to enjoy the great times the holiday season has to offer. Families in new construction homes can especially look forward to putting up a tree in their new homes, stringing lights outside, and wrapping presents for your loved ones. Here are a few tips to help families in new construction homes make holiday decorating a little easier:
It’s smart to start thinking about Christmas before you slice the Thanksgiving turkey. Perhaps the best time to think about decorating new homes for Christmas is just after Halloween. If you do a little bit of planning here and there, it will make decorating a lot smoother as the holiday approaches. For example, you can start bringing out the boxes of Christmas decorations you will use. You can also start to clear space on shelves and walls to make room for your Christmas decorations.
Buy a Pre-Lit Christmas Tree
A pre-lit artificial Christmas tree comes with lights already woven into the branches. All you have to do is open up the branches and plug it in. A tree that already has lights on it will save families in new construction homes a lot of time. A pre-lit artificial Christmas tree is inexpensive to purchase. You can find them in most stores. Best of all, it can be re-used year after year. That saves you money, and helps the environment. Finally, buying a pre-lit tree means that you can focus on the fun part of putting up the tree: decorating it with ornaments!
Use Removable Adhesive Hooks
Most families in new construction homes don’t want to put holes in the walls of their brand new homes. Fortunately, you don’t need to use nails or screw to attach holiday decorations to the walls. All you need are removable hooks, which are widely available in most stores. Instead of using nails and screws, these hooks use a special adhesive to stick to the walls of new build homes. This adhesive won’t tear the paint or leave a mark on the wall, yet they are strong enough to hold a wreath or other Christmas decorations. These hooks are the perfect way to feature holiday cheer everywhere in new construction homes without marring any surfaces.
Have a Family D.I.Y. Decoration Night
Instead of going to busy stores looking for holiday decorations, why not stay inside your new craft room and craft a Christmas project with your family? There are plenty of Christmas decorating projects online you can create for new construction homes. You don’t need expensive materials to make a beautiful Christmas decoration. You can even use items you already have in your home to spruce it up with some ‘holiday magic’. A home decoration night makes for a memorable occasion that can become a family tradition every year. Once your decorations are complete, you can hang them up for family and friends to behold and enjoy.
Give Away Some Ornaments
Every year, families in their new homes tend to accumulate Christmas decorations. If you have more decorations than your home can use, consider giving some away to less fortunate families who may not have any Christmas decorations of their own. Select a few items to donate as you unpack each box of Christmas ornaments. Dedicate a box for decorations you wish to give away. When you’ve unpacked everything take your donation box to a thrift store. You can also call a local social services organization or church to see if there are any local drives for Christmas decorations. Simple donations of ornaments to less fortunate families is a great way to show the true spirit of Christmas. You’ll also have fewer decorations to store and will feel much more organized for next year
