Decorating Barn for Christmas
Christmas is a blissful holiday when everything around is sparkling and rustling. Don’t let your horses stay dimmy these days. Let’s add some Christmas sparkles to the barn too!
Before you start grabbing all the Christmas-related knick-knacks, plan ahead how you want the barn to look like. And you definitely don’t want to turn the place into a ball of blinding lights. A wise strategy is needed. Here are some go-to tips to consider.
Let There Be Light
The first step to spruce up the barn is to get the Christmas lights. Check for LED lights as they are cooler (white color) and they are electric bill friendly. You can set the lights all over the barn or make fancy figures with them. Choose the accent wall and create a centerpiece on the like of a snowman, Santa, or a bust of your hooved pal!
Keep in mind that safety is the utmost aspect when decorating the barn. Make sure all the cords are hidden and anti-chew. Ideally, the lights should be decorated the way your horse can’t reach for them.
Add More Trinkets
If Christmas lights are not enough for you, no probs, there are even more options. Garland may come in handy as a budget-friendly decoration. These beaded threads come in a variety of colors. Silver, gold, red, white, and blue are especially in demand.
Drape the garland over the barn and don’t be shy to mix the colors. Every corner and every post is friendly to such decoration. And again, bear in mind your hooved pal. Don’t let him eat all the garlands. Alternatively (or additionally), you can use ribbons to spice up the barn.
Don’t overdo with the garlands as there’s other stuff you can use. No Christmas can go without stockings! Take a few of them and hang out the stockings all over the barn. You can hide Christmas treats there for your four-legged buddy. Besides, it would be nice to embroider your horse’s name on the stocking – if they’ve behaved themselves, of course.
Make a Scene
If you’ve got enough space, so why not create a stupendous Christmas scene at the nook of the barn? A wide array of characters could be involved – anything that will make you chuffed to bits this holiday. For instance, you can place an Ox as the symbol of 2021.
Add some candles and garlands to make the scene hygge. You can also place a chair so your guest could take spellbinding photos of your composition.
Add a Wreath
Another significant Christmas doodad is a wreath. You don’t need lots of them, just hang one or two in the spotlight. It’s better to put a wreath outside the barn, not inside. As if the wreath contains seasonal plants, they may be poisonous to horses. Watch your hooved friend not to approach the decoration.
Alternatively, you can make a DIY wreath and add the “ingredients” you desire. In the case of using improvised means like paper, cotton, fabric, home plants, you’re likely to knock off its price, which is a plus. Make sure the wreath is far away from candles, just in case.
Let’s Have a Ball
You can turn the whole burn into a Christmas tree by adding various Christmas balls. Drape the balls over the premises, the more the better. Make a garland with a thread and the balls or spread them separately, it’s up to you. There’s a bunch of figures that can be found on the market. Find some horse-related Christmas decorations and your barn will be at the frontline, hands down.
Don’t Forget About the Barn Inhabitants
Now the barn is geared up for Christmas, but what about your hooved friends? Why not take a Christmas photo shoot with classy dresses? You’ll definitely have a pleasant holiday by “awing” at your pet dressed as a Rudolf. Or as a Grinch, or an Elf. Wish you lots of happy hooves!
