How Cosiness Can Be Created At Home At Christmas

How Cosiness Can Be Created At Home At Christmas

You’ll soon be able to stop your Christmas countdown as the big day is just over a week away now. It just so happens that the cold weather has kicked in too before it’s here, making your home even more the place to be.

While keeping out of the cold at home, you want to feel cosy and that cosiness shouldn’t just come from keeping warm under a blanket or sinking a few hot mulled wines.

No, you can decorate your space in ways that will create the cosiest of atmospheres.

Give your fireplace the full festive effect

We throw everything into our Christmas trees when it comes to decorating them so that they look a seasonal masterpiece, but your fireplace should also be a fantastic festive focal point.

It will be if you hang a wreath in the space above the fireplace – who said you can only have a wreath on your front door?

As an accompaniment to the wreath, place a garland over your mantle and bring attention to it with a holly, jolly message of ‘Merry Xmas’ or ‘Ho-Ho-Ho’ in neon lettering amongst it.

Fill bottles and jars with fairy lights

The warm glow given off by fairy lights makes for a cosy sight during the winter months and you can have lots of them about the house in any used bottles and jars you have.

With a bottle, you want to drill a hole in the bottom of it so that you can then feed through the lights, although if you’ve not got time for that, you can always buy some pre-made.

Put them on shelves, table tops, window sills etc. and go with batteries rather than a plug so that it doesn’t cost you in energy.

Put precious festive snaps on show

Think back to your happiest times and many of them may well have occurred during previous Christmases with friends and family.

If you have any pictures of these treasured moments, have them displayed somehow and surround yourself with comforting images.

They could be turned into personalised baubles that you can hang on the tree or snow globes. A pick of polaroids could also be used as a tree or wall decoration.
