The Christmas tree is the center of festive decoration
The symbolic center of the Christmas festival is undoubtedly the Christmas tree. This is a must in the Advent season, plays a crucial role on Christmas Eve, or rather, Christmas would not be the same without a perfect Christmas tree.
Position the Christmas tree strategically in the room
The Christmas tree looks back on a long tradition, the beginning of which still lies with the old Germans. At that time, the Christmas tree symbolized vitality and fertility and was placed in public places and in front of the houses. The first Christmas tree was erected in Germany in 1419 by the Freiburg bakery and decorated with fruits and nuts. Nowadays the tradition has evolved much further and there are numerous possibilities for selecting and placing the Christmas tree. For this reason, our editorial team would like to provide an overview and a current update on the most important ideas.
Different contrasts form a cool end result
Before Christmas Eve, a Christmas tree is traditionally placed at home and festively decorated together with the family. Perhaps you think this process is like a children’s game! This is not true unfortunately, but every step should be well planned. The choice of a suitable Christmas tree is not always easy for many families. Statistics show us that in the last few years a favorite among all Christmas tree varieties – the Northmannanne. This is recommended for families with children or pets, because their dark green needles are very soft compared to the conventional varieties. A major advantage of this Christmas tree variety is the long shelf life even at high room temperatures. The Nordmannenanne is also considered to be very convenient for any space due to not so great altitude. If you prefer a higher type of Christmas tree, then the finely tuned, spruce and Douglas fir trees are the best choice.
Different contrasts form a cool end result
With the right choice for you from a beautiful Christmas tree comes the next important question that millions of people ask themselves again and again: How should the Christmas tree be decorated this year? Here you will find various solutions for the perfect decoration of your Christmas tree.
The neutral design creates a stylish ambience
This kind of decoration differs very much from the traditional Christmas ideals, which should be carried out according to a perfectly planned order. Begin with the strings of lights first and place them so that there is enough room for garlands and chains. You might need more than one string of lights if you have a larger Christmas tree. Nowadays, the colorful string of lights is one of the best selling Christmas decorations for Christmas. This does not mean that the monochromatic lamps are not a trend, quite the opposite! The original string of lights with universal colors are a highlight in Christmas decorations and create a great visual variety.
Matt or shine? Decide to your taste!
If the lights are already positioned on your Christmas tree, then the next step – garlands and chains. These decorative elements are once again a must, because their shiny or matt surfaces provide for festive atmosphere and perfect optics all round.
The Christmas tree should correspond well with the wall design
Our tip : The correct arrangement should be combined with a suitable color effect. Better, different groups of balls should be formed with the same color. Combine the garlands and balls with the color palette of the string of lights to create a stylish harmony of different nuances.

Christmas figures made of wood
There are many wooden Christmas figures on the market. But we have a great idea for you, as you can make small penguin figures themselves. For this you need different pine cones as a body, small wooden ball as head, felt material for wings and feet and some additional decorative elements as desired. The fastest and easiest way is to attach the parts to each other with the hot-melt gun. Glue the wooden ball to pine cones and paint them in black and white, the typical colors for a penguin head. Let dry. Cut out the wings and feet from the felt and stick them up accordingly. The other accessories are left to your imagination, but you can get stimulation from the picture above.

Make a cylindrical shape from the carton and glue it sideways so that it can withstand. Now the buttons come in line. Large or small, monochrome or colorful, everything is what you like. Different-colored pearls or small flowers will take over the role of Christmas decorations. Fast and inexpensive you have a great Christmas figure.

Magic Christmas lights – a wonderful light-shadow game
Last but not least, we come to the magical Christmas lights and the small sparkling tealights that further strengthen the magic of Christmas.
Purpose and purpose of Christmas lighting
Long before humanity began celebrating the Christian Christmas festivity, many pagan peoples honored the darkest time of the year and the winter solstice. This time was considered by many to be the end of the darkness and the rebirth of light. Probably for this reason, the tradition of Christmas lighting has emerged, which we continue to cultivate so lovingly these days.
A successful Christmas lighting looks like a charm
Light and color – the effect on the psyche
The light can not exist without the dark, at least not for our perception. With regard to light design, it can only be said that only by a precisely placed light, some objects can come to the best value. What we all want to achieve in the Christmas season by decorating and soft-water lighting is primarily a meditative mood and a cozy home atmosphere. The heart is warmed and the thoughts brightened and brightened. Whether it is indoor or outdoor lighting, we choose deliberately or not soft and warm, often indirect light. We get several small, sparkling lights by the use of light chains, wind lights or candlelight.
Candlelight and light reflexes alone create the desired festive ambience
Light can not exist without darkness and vice versa also
Ideas for Christmas lighting
It could be said sloppy, that the Christmas lighting can be freely chosen according to your own feelings. Only one thing would have to be considered: in order to be able to feel the effect of the Weihenchtszaubers, one should let the interplay of dark and light. Create a light shadow play by window decoration with shears cut or tinker wind lights, for which you use Christmas symbols.
A string of lights is enough to create a festive and magical atmosphere
Snowy landscapes intensify the effect of light
Enchanting light design
As has already been mentioned, each light design becomes important only when it emphasizes the form or the nature of objects. The example with the scissor cut is not the only way to make a room seem to be magical. If you are lucky enough to experience a snow landscape in front of your doorstep in the festive days, you can use it as a wonderful design template. The snow reflects the light and thus reinforces the desired effect of the spell.
Mirroring and reflexes are the best helpers in your lighting design
But one does not have to hope for snow, because many paths lead to the Christmas miracle. Look at your Christmas decoration and position the light cubes next to light-reflecting materials, such as Christmas decorations for example. Glitter candles, metal shells, glass, but also mirrors have the characteristics to multiply the light and strengthen the Christmas mood.
The shape and texture of the objects may appear magical
You can still use the light as a supplement to the decoration of the table.

Christmas tealight holder in rustic style
The rural atmosphere and Christmas belong together somehow. The simplicity, the proximity to nature, the longing for the roots of our traditions and culture also symbolize the values that we associate with this festival. Rustic Christmas candlesticks make you simply made of wood. Even in rough form, they are wonderfully incorporated into modern Scandinavian interior design and decorating concepts. Another alternative are the great Christmas candelabras in the form of wooden figures with the symbols of the festival.
Noble Christmas candlestick
Noble Christmas lights are mostly made of metal or high-quality glass. They create a magical mood through their luster and the mirror effects. In a simple, rural or minimalist home, the noble Christmas candlesticks make the festively decorated table naturally a real eye-catcher. In other words, you bring more solemnity into space through eclecticism.

Gladly the design with great loops. You can also paint the glass and draw different symbolic figures on it.
