How to Use Christmas Ornaments!

A great way to use your Christmas tree ornaments for decorating is to use them to adorn wreaths. You can easily give a new look to a wreath that may be old or outdated. Simply attach the ornaments with a little piece of wire or ribbon through the holes and secure tightly to the wreath. You can also use your ornaments as embellishments for garlands in the same manner as adorning wreaths. Garlands look splendid when draped across curtain rods, displayed on mantles, or over window and doorframes.

Many times, Christmas tree ornaments are packaged or sold in sets. This is a great advantage when it comes to decorating. You can group individual ornaments to make beautiful centerpieces and displays. Consider using ornaments as the focal point on mantles, dining room tables, and on small tables as well. Hanging ornaments from curtain tiebacks is a wonderful way to display your favorite pieces. When you are setting the Christmas dinner table, why not attach an ornament to the napkin rings. This will make your table outstanding and add an extra decorative touch. No matter what your preferred theme is: gingerbread men, snowflakes, or vintage Santa Claus, using Christmas tree ornaments can add beauty and style to your home this season.
