A Christmas tree is the heart and soul of the festival. Selecting a tree, and growing it would be the ideal way, but it could be difficult in the present times. The next easiest possible way is to get one ready from the market. But this time, make sure you adorn it in a different way and hue. If you are a nature lover, you can opt for an organic decoration such as a pineapple tree.

DIY (do it yourself) candles using snowman is a trend this season. Before setting up or buying a snowman, install some LED lights or fragrant candles inside them. This will not only keep your home in a Christmas mood but will also soothe the air inside the rooms. Make sure there is a small space for the air to escape out from the snowman.

While gifting your dear and near ones, make sure you use only recyclable products. An organic package will add a special touch to your gifts. Not only are they nature-friendly but also are cost effective. You may use jute pieces, ropes and olive leaves while packing gifts. Use DIY wax seals for stamping them.

Save up some old bottle corks. You can make an innovative Christmas wreath using them. Stick them up around a circular frame (the one used for fabric painting) and adorn them with a red beautiful tie.

Use woolen yarns of different colors to make a mini replica of the tree. You can hang them at different places. It can be made in a few minutes. All you need to do is to apply some glue on a paper cone and roll the yarn over it. You can also try making a yarn ball by sticking them onto a balloon and later popping it after the wool dries
