With Christmas around the corner, everything feels bathed in that glossy red and green light, adorned with baubles and fairy lights. The stores are already bedecked with fir trees, and everyone’s already bringing out their ugly Christmas sweaters. But home feels like a stark difference from outside, with its white walls, as opposed to bright colors and swaying lights.

So how can we make our house feel like Christmas time is already here?

1. Hang up your fairy lights/ LED strip lights. The lights will bring some much needed color to your house as well as get everybody in the Christmas mood. You’ll find that soft glowing golden lights function just as well as colorful flashing lights.

2. Hang up dried fruit peels around the house. Oranges, cinnamon, apples or other citrus fruits are best for this purpose. You can eat the inside of the fruit and then set out the peel to dry in sunshine. The heat brings out the sweet fragrance of the fruit and can scent up the entire house. Punch a few holes in the peel and thread string through, then hang it up throughout the house. The entire house will have the Christmas scent.

3. Make pretty arts and crafts cutouts to hang up. Origami or cutups serve as the same. Extremely easy crafts are flowers and Christmas trees.

Flowers: Cut an A4 paper into as many squares as you can. Take a square and fold it twice, into a tiny square. Then cut the edges off. Unfold it, it looks like a flower now. You can color it with paint, pencils or anything you like. Sticking it on doors or walls with glue looks quite pretty,

Christmas Trees: For this you just have to cut a few triangles and paint them green. You can make tinsel with highlighter or even bits of wool. You can make baubles with glitter pens. Like the flowers, you can stick them on doors or use them for décor.

4. Set up scented candles. Aromas like pine and cinnamon are trademark Christmas. The sight of the flame and the wafting scent will make you feel at home.
