Why is it worth choosing this type of Christmas decorations? What is the secret of their magical appearance? What forms are available and where do they look best? If you like openwork decorations, you will find answers to all your questions in this post .

Openwork decorations also for cities

Openwork decorations that evoke a magical Christmas atmosphere in interiors are most often made of wicker or plywood. However, such materials, although they are perfect at home, are not able to meet the challenges outside. Therefore, openwork decorations for cities should be made of very durable, moisture-resistant or frost-resistant material, which also is plastic enough to form various shapes. Otherwise, there is a risk that they will not last even one season.

Openwork elements stimulate our imagination. The round shape is reminiscent of a snow ball, but also a Christmas bauble. If a string is added to the decoration, there will be no more doubts. Although such an original Christmas tree decoration in a large format is impressive, it is worth going a step further. You can create a pyramid from several openwork baubles.

A family of openwork decorations

As it has long been known, the more the merrier. The rule applies not only to the family table during Christmas Eve, but also to Christmas arrangements. Openwork decorations should be placed next to each other to create a great composition. This solution will work very well in larger spaces where a single ornament will not make any impression. Openwork sphare or Christmas trees can be placed in large pots, so even without plants, they will still have a decorative function.
