Giving Your Christmas Tree A Perfectly Cohesive Look Is So Easy With This Budget-Friendly Hack
As demonstrated by TikTok user @illustriusandy, covering your Christmas tree ornaments with balloons is not at all a difficult process. All you need to do is cut the lip off of a balloon and remove the ornament’s base. Then, carefully slide the balloon over the ornament. Once the ornament is fit snugly inside the balloon, cut off any excess and replace the ornament’s base. Just like that, your ornament is given a new life in the color of your choosing.
Balloons — especially when stretched — also provide a soft matte finish that allows the texture of your ornaments to shine through. Some TikTok commenters, like @Beki0671, even compared the appearance of the finish to much pricier material such as velvet. To create a cohesive look, you can cover all your ornaments with the same color balloons, two complementary colors, or two contrasting ones. If you’re feeling bold, experiment with non-traditional color schemes for your holiday decor. If you want to change your color scheme again next year, all it takes is a new package or two of balloons.
