Do you want to kick things up a notch this holiday season? Do you want to make your home look elegant for Christmas?
You may think that it’s impossible to do on a budget, but you’d be wrong. There are ways to make your home shine this holiday season without overspending. Let’s take a closer look at how to make your Christmas tree elegant on a budget.
Choose a Color Scheme
First things first. You want to choose a color scheme. Remember that there’s no color scheme that’s off limits – even black has become a popular color to use at Christmas. Traditional color schemes include silver and gold, red and green, and gold and white. But you can use whatever colors you want and still have an elegant looking tree.
Make Your Tree Look Fuller
Another great tip is to make your tree look as full as possible. If your Christmas tree is a bit on the bare side, use garland to fill it in. You can wrap the garland around the center of the tree to instantly give it a fuller look. You can also use ornaments to fill in any naked spots.
Use White Lights
White lights are always the way to go. White lights look elegant on their own and when added to your tree, they will give it a sophisticated look. You can use differently shaped lights, but small white lights really do look best. Your tree will also look more elegant if you set the lights so that they don’t blink or flash.
Skip the Tinsel
Tinsel may be pretty, but if you want your Christmas tree to be elegant, you want to use ribbon. You can find ribbon in so many different styles. Make sure to choose something that matches your color scheme. The Dollar Tree has many varieties, but you will need several rolls. Compare the prices carefully between the Dollar Tree, a craft store, and Walmart to get the best price.
Select Three of Four Types of Ornaments
Last, but not least, you want your ornaments to match. This doesn’t mean you’ll just use one type of ornament, but it does mean that you’ll use several of each type. For example, you might purchase bulb and icicle ornaments in white and teardrop and pinecone ornaments in gold, When you have several of each, it really makes your Christmas tree stunning.
You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to create an elegant looking Christmas tree. There are so many inexpensive tricks you can use to make your tree into something Pinterest worthy.
