As the air gets colder and Christmas get closer, entire neighborhoods, towns and cities put up thousands of twinkling lights, wreaths, bows and pretty much anything red and green. While half the fun of the holidays is decking out your house in everything holly and jolly, all those festive adornments can get expensive! Instead of forking over hundreds of dollars for decorations that will sit in the attic for 11 months out of the year, check out the cheap, do-it-yourself Christmas decoration ideas below.
Christmas holiday decorations are strands of lights secured at an upper location of a flagpole top and strands extend to a circular base forming an illusion of a Christmas tree when the lights are lit. The art of imitation or artificial Christmas trees includes simulated tree shapes by supporting vertically a conical structure which appears to a viewer’s eyes to incorporate elements of decorated Christmas trees.
The advantages of such an imitation Christmas tree are clear. The weight of structural support members is dramatically reduced by providing guy wire-like support for a central, vertical pole by way of the radiating strings of lights, which are preferably connected to the round base with substantial tension in the string.
The string light type Christmas tree has only three main elements with substantial weight, i.e., the strings of lights, the round base, and the vertical support pole. This type of Christmas tree is surprisingly light and can be moved to many locations with minimal strength or difficulty.
December marks a number of holidays including and other cultural and religious festivals. So pick up a banner or flag to display around your home or garden to show your festive spirit during this holiday season! The Flagpole Christmas Tree, suited for flat-roofed buildings, is a good fit for many businesses most often located in such buildings.
Even though the popularity of Christmas tree was notable in Germany but by the 1890s Christmas ornaments started to arrive in the US market as well. However, the convention for both Europe and US was quite different. Europeans liked to use small Christmas trees of 4 feet height whereas Americans preferred gigantic Christmas trees, the length of which varied enormously.
