You can decorate your Christmas tree with a wide range of different items ranging from commercially produced decorations to natural items found in the home, in the garden and in the woods. Nothing beats those hand made decorations that youngsters make.
They may not have all the sparkle or glitter or bright colours that commercially produced decorations have, but those commercially produced decorations don’t have that personal touch that hand made decorations bring to your Christmas tree.
Most families combine the two. The commercially produced decorations go onto the tree and when completed, the home (or school) made decorations are then added to take pride of place – and so they should. You can see the look of pride on a child’s face when the Christmas tree is finished and their decorations are prominent. They won’t be shy in telling your guests who made which decoration, either.
It is a sign that Christmas is still a time for families. The Christmas tree is often the focal point with family members traveling from near and far to see the tree, add their gifts, and to share in the joy that is Christmas.
