Let’s be honest, no one really wants to have a calm and simple Christmas, right? That would be too easy, and, frankly, boring. But what makes it exciting and interesting is the bizarre stuff we see. For example, the neighbor’s house across the street who wants their lights to be seen from outer space. That one uncle of ours who likes to eat cat Jell-O at the Christmas dinner party. Yes, I am naming a bunch of Christmas movie references. Work with me on this. We’ve seen it all, or have w
What brings about some of the more memorable Holidays is when we have some unique and creative stories to share. Remember that one-time dad decided to put up the Christmas lights with a staple gun? We want our Christmas to be fun and special! Recently, East Idaho had their annual “Parade of Homes,” where many witnessed beautiful home décor. Sleek, clean, and neat where Idaho Falls home builders work their best to make this possible. We’ve almost become a little envious, wishing that we could have our houses like this instead of the way our houses look as if a hurricane came through. It would be nice to have it that way, but wouldn’t it be a little more interesting for your guests to walk in a literal “Winter Wonderland?”
Now I am not suggesting we grab all the snow from outside and dump it everywhere inside the house. But instead, create something special, something different, that you, your family, and friends will get a kick out of. Here are some “Peculiar Christmas Knickknacks” that will do just the trick. Get creative and make it your own.
Ladder Christmas Tree
One of the decorations that symbolizes Christmas so well is the Christmas tree. We could have it big, small, wide, skinny, or just plain Charlie Brown. But have you ever tried a ladder Christmas tree? Give Instructables a look at to see just what I mean. The best part of creating a ladder tree is that you can do all sorts of things with it. Take the Redneck Christmas Tree. Want to get a laugh from your friends and neighbors? Put up a large ladder in your front lawn, and wrap lights around it. Simple and awesome!
Imagine the first decoration your guests see when they walk up to your door. A wreath entirely made from toilet paper, thanks firsthomedreams.blogspot.com for this great idea. The possibilities are endless! What really sets you apart from the rest of your friends and family is what sits right there in the front of your house. Check out bystephanielynn.com for some more ideas on how to get creative.
There are plenty more creative decorations out there, but these were some to name a few. Now it is up to you to decide how you want to remember this Christmas. And remember, don’t be a “humbug” about it!
