Selection and care of Christmas trees
Nothing brings us into a festive mood as fast as the smell of a conifer at home, does it? That’s the nice side. At the same time, however, a Christmas tree presents a certain challenge. Its selection and care are not easy at all.
What kind of Christmas tree do you want to buy?
There are various Christmas trees on the market. Take a good look and choose one that suits your needs and preferences. Above all, ask yourself the following questions: Is the tree suitable for ornamentation? Does he have the right size and width for my apartment? Once you’ve picked a beautiful but too expensive tree, you might also ask yourself the following: Could I find a cheaper alternative to the same tree?
A great dress for the tree trunk
The biggest problem is the needles. They are falling all the time. If you do not take action, collect it from every possible corner until Easter. From the beginning you should put a plastic blanket under the tree. It’s best to make a hole in the middle. There you can place the tree trunk. Now spread the plastic cover like a skirt under the tree.
Decorate the plastic ceiling
The plastic blanket can in itself have a great color or even different patterns. Alternatively, you can spice it up with different decoration. So the plastic ceiling makes a certain contribution to the Christmas spirit, rather than spoiling it.
After that, you can easily fold the plastic blanket together with all the needles like a sack and throw it away. You can also just throw away the needles. You surely need the plastic blanket for next year.
Tips for removing the needles from the apartment
No matter how well you have accomplished the mission with the plastic blanket, needles remain on the ceiling and on the walls. Remove them from the carpet with ice cream cones. Get it off the wall with baby oil. Wash the traces of it with detergent and water.
You need a professional cut
A specialist has to cut off the tree trunk. It is a must-have. Immediately set up the tree and keep it in consistent contact with the water.
Cut the tree sideways or in a V shape. You still have to drill a hole in there. These methods avoid absorbing water.
Artificial Christmas trees are also beautiful
Both for your own peace and for the sake of the environment, you can buy an artificial Christmas tree. This can also be very beautiful and is set up several years in succession. With aroma oils, scented candles and other methods you spread a nice smell at home.
