Gold Christmas Trees
Golden colored Christmas trees are a wonderful way to spice up any space in your home and add a comfortable, soft glow to any room. It looks classy and festive, as well as luxurious. Adorn your tree with red bows and white lights for the overall color pop that will keep you wanting to spend as much time around the tree as possible.
If you are lucky enough to find a golden wreath this holiday season, buy it! They are difficult to find, but if you’re crafty you can make one of your very own. Simply spray paint a faux wreath with gold spray paint, adorn it with bows and festive artifacts like cinnamon scented pinecones or ‘snow’ covered pinecones, and hang. This idea is beautiful for a front door or entry way into your home, and eye catching.
Mirrors accommodate any season, and if you would like to add something extra special, opt for a mirror with a golden frame, preferably one with an antique look to it. Hang it on the wall by your Christmas tree to show the reflection of the tree and lights, and you’ve got an added pop of color in your room which will make your guests do a double take!
Many designers offer golden ornaments during the Christmas season, and you can never have enough of them. If you are into making crafts, this is an excellent one to do yourself. Simply take some clear glass ornaments, add some acrylic paint inside the bulb, swirl around inside of the ornament and throw in some contrasting glitter such as silver or red. If you want to go all gold, you can do that as well. You can then decorate the outside however you wish! Allow drying time of 24 hours before you hook and hang the ornaments.
Golden Tableware and Plates
If you have guests coming for dinner Christmas Eve or Christmas day, prepare a lovely meal and adorn the table with gold. A golden tablecloth, golden plates and silverware, and gold rimmed drinking glasses make a perfect conversation piece that will leave everyone breathless. Add a sparkle with white candles in hurricane vases for a special touch.
Golden Snowflakes and Stars
This is a fun project to make with your kids or grandkids. If you can find golden stars and snowflakes and would rather purchase them pre-made, that’s fine too. Otherwise, spray paint them with gold spray paint (outdoors of course, to avoid inhalation of fumes) and add some white or gold glitter. Allow them to dry, and tie some clear thread or string around the top of each one. Hang them from the ceiling throughout the room in which you have your Christmas tree at different lengths. You could also use red ribbon to hang them instead.
