In the months following the holiday season, many Americans will take advantage of the holidays to make the most of their homes, while others will stay in the comfort of their own homes to create something a bit more festive.
The Hill asked readers to create the perfect Christmas tree, from their own family home to an old-fashioned farmhouse or cottage.
These tips will help you decorate your own home for your own family, friends and neighbors.1.
The tree should have a window to show off the decorations.
When your home has a window, it’s easy to make it look more festive by giving it a lighted window or having a window in the living room.
The more open it is, the more room there is for the decorations to shine.
If your house is well-kept and has plenty of light, a light-up Christmas tree should be able to shine all day long.2.
Place your decorations in an upright position.
You want the decorations hanging from a branch or a tree that is about three feet above the ground, but not so high as to obstruct the view of the tree.
This way, the decorations will be visible all the time.3.
Use decorative elements such as pumpkins, trimmings, straw, and other decorations to decorate the tree, and make it stand out.
You can add a colorful ribbon or ribbon tied to a string to help the decorations stand out from the rest of the home.4.
Make a small hole in the tree to make a small window for the light.
Put a piece of string through this hole, and attach the ribbon to the string.
This will make it easy to see the decorations all day and provide a nice, large window.5.
Place a piece in the middle of the bottom of the door and attach a piece that extends to the front.
The window will serve as a focal point, and will serve to hold the lights for the night.6.
Cut a decorative piece in a circle, and stick it into the center of the window to provide a small, but decorative, place for the lights.7.
Tie a ribbon around the top of the ribbon and hang the ribbon around a string on the outside of the Christmas tree.8.
Use a wooden dowel or metal pole to hang the decorations around the tree for the evening.9.
Use wood for the base and wood for a frame for the tree and a window for decoration.10.
Place the wood frame at the base of the house and add a piece at the top for the fireplace.
This allows for plenty of space for the decorative pieces to hang out of the fireplace and the light to be visible from the outside.11.
Make the tree bigger by adding a few more branches or a small tree with many flowers.12.
Use lighted twigs to decorating the outside, and a small lamp to illuminate the Christmas Tree.13.
Use white paper to decorat the tree with a few little lights, and use paper lanterns to light the lighted branches.14.
Make your tree larger by adding more branches, or a larger tree with several blooms.15.
Put white paper or a piece with a small light in the window on top of your Christmas tree to illuminate it all day.16.
Add a small piece of white fabric to cover the front of the wood frames and the top.17.
Cut off the ends of the white fabric and use it as a handle to hang a light on the back of your tree, so that you can see the light all the way around the house.18.
Put up an open door at the front to let the light shine out into the yard.19.
Use string or a cord to hang decorations from a tree or pole to a window or door, or tie the fabric around the door or window to make them visible.20.
Tie the fabric to a rope and hang your tree or light on a string for an evening light show.21.
Add decorative elements like pumpkins and trimmers to the tree or plant in the center.22.
Make an additional small tree to hang in the back to provide light to the back garden.23.
Make multiple small trees for the front garden.24.
Use ribbon or string to attach decorative lights to a light, like a lantern, on the front or side of the family home.25.
Place decorative twigs or a decorative ornament on a small branch or twig to hang around a door or a window.26.
Place an open window in your living room to provide ample light and plenty of room for decorations to hang.27.
Add some paper or cardboard to your window or to a door and hang a decorative paper or plastic card to hold it up.28.
Place paper or an open cardboard box on a light in your bedroom, or attach a plastic bag to a piece on the window.29.
Make decorations in the yard to provide the family with an easy place to gather
