To start your holiday decorations with a unique touch, consider using an artificial evergreen conifer such as spruce, pine, or fir, or opt for an artificial tree that closely mimics their appearance, which is traditionally associated with Christmas celebrations, as the centrepiece of your decor. 

If you don't plan to have an artificial tree because of your space or you just prefer something new, you can decorate artificial plants and adorn them with lights to create a distinctive and festive Christmas display.

2. Batik Ornaments:

What Are Basic Christmas Decorations?

Basic Christmas decorations usually consist of things such as a Christmas tree, ornaments, lights, and a wreath. People often decorate the Christmas tree with colourful balls, shiny tinsel, and something special on top. 

They also put lights on the tree and around their house. Wreaths are often hung on doors, and people might also use stockings, candles, and holiday-themed figurines to make their homes festive.

What Are the Simple Christmas Colours?

The simple and classic Christmas colours are red and green. Red symbolises warmth and festivity, while green represents the evergreen trees that are a traditional part of Christmas decor.
