How to decorate the house for the New Year 2020 with your own hands

Christmas tree decoration

New Year is a holiday that they look forward to. And you have to wait a long time, and therefore you want to spend it so that the memories warmed the soul and delighted the heart. To do this, you need to responsibly approach the holding of such an important event. In preparation for the holiday, everything is significant: gifts, a New Year's feast menu, an elegant Christmas tree, and, of course, home decoration. And you will have to plan ahead, otherwise you will not have time in the New Year's bustle.

Before you start preparing, think about what exactly you want to get in the end.

There are two approaches to decorating the home and the New Year tree. The first is when you get everything you have, call the children, and they decorate to your taste, anyhow, but from the heart and fun. In this case, the owners do not care what the house or the tree looks like, the main thing is that the children are happy, and the mom has free time. But the result is unlikely to please, and you will have to look at it at least all the holidays, and sometimes even longer.

The second approach is more conceptual. You think in advance how you want to dress up the house. See what toys and jewelry you have to buy or do it yourself. The latter is even preferable, because it adds warmth and warmth to the process. Here you can also attract loved ones, they will only be happy. This is what Americans call the “Christmas spirit,” and we are the “New Year mood.” And that's great!

Before making design decisions, carefully consider which parts of the room to design. The main areas for interior stylization: walls, New Year's table and Christmas tree. In addition to them, windows, doors, various niches and furniture decorate.

Professional decorators recommend using the entire space of the room. Pay attention to window sills, fireplaces, and bookshelves that place decorations and characters of the coming year.

TIP! Decorating houses for the New Year has its own trends. Recently, it has been popular to hang wreaths and garlands on the front door. You can make a festive wreath yourself from improvised materials. First, assemble a rigid frame of wire or dry branches, and then braid in a circle with ribbons, beads or balls.

If you have a private house, then decorate the house area and entrance group as standard: garlands, a snowman, a wreath on the door. Some like inflatable figures Santa Claus or deer. You can’t imagine anything new here. But here the interior decoration of the house is a space for imagination and originality.

If there is free finance, time and desire, decorating a house will not be a problem at all.

But let's talk about when there is not enough time to look for beautiful pictures, buy everything you need and think about how to put it all in your home. Or when it’s an elementary pity to spend a lot of money on it. Every year, thousands of people spend decent amounts to buy New Year's supplies. What for? Each house is full of things that can beautifully and interestingly decorate everything.

  1. Snowflakes. Do not mold them corny on the windows. Place them on the wall, about fifteen, with the general composition, like snowfall. You can make them golden or silver. Arrange in the form of a Christmas tree or a large ball or other snowflake.
  2. Christmas tree made of sticks - original idea. You fix on a free wall the sticks collected on the street, one below the other, choosing the size so that you get a Christmas tree. And between the sticks you hang balls (they can be attached to ordinary sewing needles, they are light, they will hold well).
  3. Christmas tree of ballsmade on the wall (if there are plenty of toys). Also place them in rows. It will turn out very original. Choosing the color of the balls is your fantasy!
  4. Fir branches can be brought from the street and spread out on all suitable surfaces, where they will not interfere. Between the branches, put candles or put large cones.
  5. Socks! Multi-colored or red, it doesn’t matter. Huge socks from new year movies - this is a classic. And the house should be decorated the same way, otherwise they will not look. Why complicate this? Choose some of your funny socks or buy specially New Year's with deers, striped, bright. They will then be great to wear in the cold. Place them on the wall in any composition, and you will see how your guests will smile!
  6. Fairy lights - The main decoration of any home. Not only at the Christmas tree. Hang them on any surface, on walls, on bookshelves. There is a beautiful idea when the garlands are put in several wine bottles without a label. The sight is bewitching.
  7. Chandelier - A great place for Christmas toys, no worse than a Christmas tree. The idea is to have many, many, many toys. They should cover all the free space under it, hang in a continuous array.

How to decorate a Christmas tree

Designer tree

The Christmas tree remains the main decoration of the coming year. The design of the holiday tree directly depends on its size and shape. For a large Christmas tree, it is more difficult to choose a harmonious outfit, and living trees are more difficult to dress than artificial ones.

There are 3 options for the location of jewelry.

  1. Spiral. Design begins with a garland, which is wound from top to bottom in a spiral. Toys repeat a given direction, and colors can replace each other. This method is suitable for artificial and decorative patterns.
  2. Vertical. Decorations are arranged strictly in vertical lines. To dilute the strict design, use bows, ribbons, tinsel and rain.
  3. A circle. A common option is when the garland or beads lie in a circle, and the rest of the accessories are arranged randomly.
ATTENTION! Do not forget about the color style and general design of the room. A tree decorated with balls and ribbons of the same color looks beneficial.

You can make toys for the Christmas tree with your own hands. Instead of balls hang fruits, sweets, cones and other products. Figures with the symbol of the New Year are cut out of paper or cardboard. If you cannot draw a mouse, there are ready-made stencils in stores. For decoration, any materials suitable in color and repeating in the interior are suitable.

Unlike a chandelier, the main thing in decorating a Christmas tree is minimalism. The tree should be beautiful in itself. Fluffy, neat. Otherwise, no jewelry will save. It is best to dress up in the middle of the room, and then rearrange it in the right place. For a Christmas-tree outfit, several toys are arranged evenly, a little shiny tinsel and a garland. This is quite enough, given that there will still be decorations on the walls and on new year table.

The limit of minimalism is a tree wrapped only in garlands. In this case, there should be several, then it will look very unusual and mysterious.

And the top of originality is a white Christmas tree, with a plain yellow garland, dressed up as a snowman. A hat is on the top of the head, a red scarf and a few balls instead of buttons on the tree itself, and boots or even skates under the tree - and it will impress anyone.

The name of the symbol itself indicates what colors to decorate the house and Christmas tree in the coming year. It is yellow, beige, orange, golden and red with green like classic New Year colors.

For decoration, golden cones, balls and snowflakes are suitable. Figurines cut out of cardboard and wrapped in twine or burlap look beautiful. On top of them you can glue coffee beans, millet, dried cloves. Figurines from cookies fixed on ribbons look original.

Knitted mittens or mittens are also suitable, especially if they are in the right colors and made by hand.

In addition to balls, hang cones, acorns or nuts on the Christmas tree.
