Most of our Christmas decoration collections are a magical array of family heirlooms, kid’s school projects and novelty decorations which are combined to create a unique and personalised Christmas. But, for most of the year, they are stuck in a box in the cupboard or loft, only seen once a year. But who says Christmas decorations can’t be used year-round? With trends like upcycling rising, reusing the things we buy is becoming increasingly important. Our huge range of Christmas Decorations and Christmas Baubles is the most comprehensive you will find online, meaning there is something for every occasion.
One of our favourite seasonal decorations to use year-round is artificial festive flowers and floristry. Floristry is a great accessory to brighten the home as it brings a fresh and organic atmosphere. The bits of floristry used in a Christmas wreath or on a mantelpiece can be used year-round to add a splash of colour and can liven up any part of the home, no matter the season. Add them to a vase and create a joyful bouquet. Spruce up a plain mirror or photo frame with some floral embellishments to make a one-off masterpiece. Faux flowers are a great alternative to real flowers as they last a lot longer and can be used multiple times. You can create your own floral display using some of our floristry picks and flowers. Go all out and make a floral wall by hanging faux roses using fishing wire; this creates a romantic feature and a fantastic backdrop for photos of you together to remember the occasion.
One of the most versatile decorations must be Christmas lights and fairy lights. The trend of using fairy lights indoors and outdoors has grown significantly over the last couple of years. You can use them inside or outside. Lighting can create an enchanting ambience in your outside area. Hang them up in the bedroom to help create a cosy and inviting space or start looking around the house for old jars or empty spirit bottles and create your own bespoke lanterns. Spread around the house and garden for a little twinkle and sparkle throughout the home.
Have a look through your Christmas tree decorations, as there are likely loads of ornaments tucked away that you could use inside and outside of your house throughout the year. Lanterns, for example, are decorative indoor and outdoor lighting ornaments which add character to any space. Any wooden decorations can be used as a rustic addition to the home décor all year round. The same can be said for some glass ornaments, which can add a touch of elegance and class to any space year-round.
If you fancy getting creative and putting your DIY skills to the test, why not personalise some old Christmas baubles, transforming them into bespoke decorations? For example, you can paint personalised messages for your loved one.
