How to Store Your Wreaths
Wreaths are a beautiful and welcoming way to decorate your house, especially for holidays. There are so many wreath options and so many different seasons that any creative crafter can easily feel overrun with them. There are several efficient, organized ways to keep your wreaths stored until you need them. You can actually reuse your wreaths! In other words, you can use the same base for all of your wreaths and simply change the decorative features on them. Keep in mind that since you will be using this wreath foundation constantly, you will want it to be quite durable. You can attach your flowers or other designs to the wreath using a small amount of glue, a large amount of tape, or a weaving pattern that holds everything together. In this way, without destroying your wreaths, you will never have to store the ring because it is always hanging on the door. Instead of having a dozen wreath boxes, you can keep your flowers and knickknacks in a single container. However, if you do prefer having wreaths ready-to-hang, plastic containers or a hanging shelf works well. Make sure you do choose a storage method that does not flatten your flowers.
How To Decorate Your Home?Even with Small Children Around
Many families with small children still have a strong desire for a well decorated home. This at times can seem to be counter productive as children, especially very young kids, have a way of distracting from the natural flow of completing d?cor projects. Rather than trying to fight against kids for some time, have them join you! You can either get them involved in your project, or give them a separate one. They will enjoy not only the time they spend with you, but the final product that you create together. Search the Internet for project ideas you can do with your kids. Another tip: decorative items such as tall trees and hanging baskets are difficult for small hands to get to or damage.
Plant and Foliage Decorations
One of the foundations of a properly decorated home is creating the right mood. You can achieve this ambiance by combining tasteful styles, textures, colors, and furniture pieces. When you are decorating with more natural tones and textures, greenery is an important element that helps unify and give life to the room. There are many styles, sizes and shapes of greenery available, but you will want to choose one appropriate for the space you have available. Vertically, you will want one to two feet of space between the ceiling and the top of the tree. Adequate space for the branches of the tree keeps your room from looking too cramped or too empty. Some shorter trees, like the bonsai tree, are great choices for tabletop decorations. An item that is great for ceiling corners is hanging plants. The lack of sunlight is not a limitation on greenery if you choose to use artificial plants; as long as you choose a quality piece, the look will still be very realistic.
Plants as Interior D?cor
As you begin to decorate your house with greenery, first decide on the size of the plants you plan to add. For instance, if you are looking to decorate for a kitchen table the best size is around one foot to two feet. Also, look for plants with broad leaves?they look flattering on plants of this size. When you are placing plants in a corner, you will want taller plants with elongated leaves, which lead the eye from top to bottom and back up. It just goes to show that good planning is the secret to a well decorated home. Finally, remember that there are some notable benefits to silk plants: not only do they look realistic, but they do not require a lot of extra care and their lifetime is three times greater than that of real plants.
