Paper garlands for festive decoration

For Christmas garlands, color, decorative paper or old postcards are suitable

When making New Year's decor, the dimensions of the apartment should be taken into account.For a house with high ceilings, garlands with large figures are suitable. For a cozy apartment, it is preferable to make decorations of such a size that they do not look bulky.

We decorate walls and windows

The place where the New Year’s home decor is located matters. You can attach crafts and toys to the walls in several ways:

  • Scotch;
  • cloves;
  • stationery buttons.

The latter option will be optimal for small elements of decor, does not spoil the wallpaper. However, the button weakly holds massive jewelry - in this case, using tape is more practical. On the windowsills of the house you can arrange compositions of coniferous twigs, cones and candles.

Wire star

A wonderful decoration for the walls will be a star made of wire for the New Year with your own hands. Make it in several stages. For crafts you will need:

  • wire;
  • pliers;
  • tinsel.

Operating procedure:

  1. First, measure the desired length of wire in accordance with the size of the sprocket. It is acceptable to use an old aluminum hanger as a material. Having marked five equal segments on the wire with a marker, we bend the material with pliers inward or outward, forming a star. It is worth leaving an additional segment to twist the beginning and end of the product.

Homemade Christmas tree

If you can’t put a real coniferous tree for the New Year at home, there is a solution. You can make a homemade Christmas tree that will decorate the wall in a conspicuous place. This decor will create a festive mood without occupying any space.

To make a Christmas tree on the wall, you will need:

  • material on which the craft is mounted: plywood or thick cardboard;
  • various decorations for the christmas tree.

Having placed the canvas on the wall, we form a tree from everything that fits into the composition: ribbons, balls, tinsel, garlands, walnuts. As an option, you can lay out the Christmas tree using cardboard or paper tubes with a diameter of 2-3 centimeters, and then fill the interior.

Snowflakes on the window

Windows are usually decorated on the ledges with garlands, rain and toys. And New Year’s snowflakes with their own hands have almost become the traditional winter decoration of the windows of every home. If the snow does not please with its presence, it can also be made from A4 sheets. Snowflakes are created from a square, so you must first give the desired shape to the leaf.

Preparing Paper for a Homemade Snowflake

Bend the paper and cut off excess with scissors

The basic algorithm of actions:

  1. We fold the sheet evenly diagonally, bending both edges into a triangle.

There are patterns of various types and complexity on the net that will help make snowflakes for both adults and children.For convenience, the layout can be printed out and transferred to thick paper or cardboard. Such light decorations adhere well to the window with a soap solution.

For volumetric snowflakes we take:

  • 6 square sheets of paper;
  • scissors;
  • glue;
  • stapler.

A snowflake is made in four steps:

  1. Double each square and get a triangle.
  2. Then we cut it, starting from the base, with six diagonal lines parallel to the ribs. Three on both sides, not cutting to the end so that the future snowflake does not break up.
  3. By expanding the snowflake, you need to fasten the ends of the inner rhombus horizontally with glue or a stapler. Next, turn the leaf over and fasten the next two ends from the back.
  4. Repeat two more times, turning the craft over. The result is one of six petals of a snowflake.

Upon completion, all parts must be glued into one product. It is better to connect two parts of three petals (to avoid bumps).

New Year's decor color

Traditionally, New Year’s flowers are green, red, blue, gold and silver. However, decorations should be selected individually and harmoniously fit into the existing interior. Since green will definitely be present, it is necessary to dilute the decor with two or three other tones.

The law of color compatibility will help here. We add red and gold to the warm colors of the apartment, and blue and silver - to the cold. Colors such as:

  • Violet;
  • turquoise;
  • pink.

Gently dilute the brightness of the decor for New Year's beige color, especially if it is present in the design of the room.

A variety of New Year's ideas

There is no exact scheme according to which the apartment is decorated for the New Year. Therefore, any ideas that come to mind can be implemented if desired. Do not be afraid to improvise and add. You can browse catalogs, watch videos, step-by-step instructions.

Light and table setting

The cozy atmosphere of the New Year is always created with the help of soft lighting. Candles in original coasters and garlands are useful here. Lanterns not only decorate the Christmas tree, but also hang them on the walls of the house or furniture.

To craft a candlestick from threads, you will need:

  • inflatable ball;
  • PVA glue;
  • threads of different colors.

We wind the thread impregnated with glue on a ball in different directions. From above we leave an empty circle of 15-20 centimeters in diameter. Let the structure dry, then blow it off and remove the ball. We glue the candle inside in an aluminum sleeve - and pleasant lighting for the New Year is guaranteed.
