Glass bauble Christmas lights

Unusual Christmas home lighting ideas

Glass bauble lights

There are loads of lovely Christmas lights available, but if you want to combine something decorative with a lighting option, then these bauble lights are ideal.

These pretty gold lights are shaped like Christmas baubles and are fitted with LED battery operated lights.

As far as lights go, they are delicate as they’re made of glass, so need to be hung and handled with care. You could use them on a Christmas tree, where the 2-in-1 bonus would mean you don’t need heaps of other decorations, or you could use them to light up your living room or hallway.

The string of glass bauble lights measure 180cm long in total and are £12 from Next.

Purple Christmas tree

For a vibrant Christmas tree and festive decorating scheme for a contemporary home, how about opting for a rich plum?

This striking purple Christmas tree and coordinating decorations are all from Next and are a great starting point for a plum theme.

The six foot artificial Christmas tree is two tone and comes with a metal stand. It’s £60.

Many of the decorations are affordable, so won’t break the bank. For example, a set of 50 assorted shatterproof tree baubles in shades of lilac and purple costs £10.

The mini glitter trees, seen on the mantlepiece, come as a set of five and double up as name place card holders that you can use on a dining table. They’re only £6 for a set of five.

Various other purple themed decorations are available too, including the plum flock stags (£12 for 2).
