Ideas to make homemade Christmas trees

The homemade christmas trees, are an excellent option to decorate the home when the holidays approach. The holidays begin days or even weeks before with the preparation of home decoration, which we can do with family, friends or spend some quality time alone. To be a little kinder to the environment this year we can do one at home, here are a few ideas.

Meaning of the Christmas tree

Its meaning was attributed by Saint Boniface in the 8th century. The Christmas tree announces the Messiah, a true tree of life that erases sin and brings reconciliation. It is a Christian symbolism that unites with the New Testament.

It is decorated with different elements, among which we can find: the star, the angel, the lights, the bows, pine cones, different ornaments, and cannot be missed, the Christmas gifts at the foot of the tree.

That the color of the tree is green is not a coincidence, since it is a symbol of life and hope, and that it is a pine is not a coincidence either, since its tip points to heavenly heights. Currently they can be used in different materials, this does not change their meaning since they continue to emulate an authentic tree.
