1- Choose an unconventional tree

The first thing to do in order to welcome Christmas spirit into your house is to choose the perfect Christmas tree. This year, people asked for sobriety and design, choosing or even creating minimalist trees (using string art to draw a tree, reusing scrap wood, putting a dried tree in a design pot, using washi tape to draw a Christmas tree on the wall).

Here again, don’t accumulate: you can make a beautiful centerpiece with no more than origami, pine branches, white candles and silver stars.

6-Fill glass cylinders with ornaments

Glass domes are definitely elegant: add some in your centerpiece and fill them with pine cones or pine branches. The best part is that you can re-use them for New Year’s Eve, filling them with glitters or gold stars.
