There are many preparations to be made before Christmas arrives. Procuring the right kind of tree for the season, getting the decorations in line, picking out presents and other things take up most of our time. People almost tend to forget that a Christmas tree skirt is needed for the Christmas tree! The most popular of all sizes is an 18 inch Christmas tree skirt.

Why are Christmas tree skirts used?
The use of Christmas tree skirts is simple. These skirts are used to hide the unsightly sights of stands, roots, and the watering area for the Christmas tree.

How to choose the right sized Christmas tree skirt
Choosing a design for your Christmas tree skirt is far easier than choosing and understanding the size of the Christmas tree skirt. Here is how you know what size to choose for your Christmas tree:

  • Get your hands on a measuring tape and measure the widest part of the tree. The widest part of your tree is the bottom part of the tree, right above the tree trunk begins to show.
  • Next, consider the size of the Christmas skirt you need. If you need only for concealing purposes choose a skirt accordingly.
  • However, if you need a skirt which also serves as part of Christmas decoration underneath your tree, then choose a Christmas skirt which is a little wider than your tree’s actual diameter.
  • Remember that if you need a simple tree skirt which does not serve as a decoration, always go for smaller tree skirts.
  • The bigger trees use about a 30 inch Christmas tree skirt.
  • The main purpose of a Christmas tree skirt is to hide the area under the tree’s base. This base gives a weird feel to the entire decorated Christmas tree.

You can use a skirt of any size for your tree. There is no absolute right or absolute wrong size for these skirts. However, remember to choose the ones which do not cause any hazards. Most of the Christmas trees work fine an 18 inch Christmas tree skirt, but you can choose a bigger one if you like.

  • Creating a rustic look for your kitchen

    You are ready to redo your kitchen, and you are very inspired by a farmhouse or rustic vacation home that you recently spent time in. Fair enough! In this day of hi-tech gadgets and synthetic material that surround us, we have all felt that ache for a simpler time, of wood and stone, of charming rural homes from another era.

    The first and central idea to bear in mind while recreating a rustic look for your kitchen is all-natural material. Think wood pallets, even old, re-purposed wood, metal typically wrought iron, copper and brass, stone, and natural fabric cotton, linen and jute. Now, how can these elements be incorporated into your kitchen?

    You can upcycle pallets into cheap and easy open shelves in the kitchen. Use these for small items like spice jars, or even to display an antique kettle. Cross-sectioned tree trunks make beautiful side-tables, while thinner steak-style slices can make up an entire backsplash.

    Think about making cabinet doors made of wooden pallets an old re-purposed fence will do wonderfully. Do not remove all of the old paint, leave some on to accent the distressed wood look. Find old brass or copper knobs for the cabinets, and if they are tarnished, that can actually be a look. Also, twine can be wound around regular door knobs and cabinet door handles to cover some of the metal, and create a pretty accent that is warm to hold in cold months.

    Make sure your copper pots are properly displayed perhaps you can hang them from retro copper pipes from the roof, just over the island. Countertops must be wood or stone, with a wide, beautiful farmhouse sink for that authentic touch. Depending upon the look of your kitchen, choose stone, fireclay or copper for your farmhouse sink, and finish the look with a charming old-world faucet over the sink.

    Get rid of all plastic jars, because plastic has no place in a rustic theme. Use glass jars for storage, and do bring in a hint of the kitchen garden by planting herbs in a bunch of repurposed mason jars on the window sill. Display fruit and vegetable prominently, in wooden bowls or beautiful white wicker baskets.

    A rustic theme doesn’t require a big budget or major remodeling. You could take a year’s time to make each element by hand, and install it yourself. After all, DIY and handmade articles are at the very heart of a rustic home, where people invariable built things by themselves!

  • Buying your first bike, here’s what you need to know

    Planning to buy your first motorcycle? Motorcycles offer a sense of freedom while you cruise them along curved roads., revving up the bike’s engine as you cruise along the road that go miles and miles. It’s a nirvana in its own sense. Sounds romantic for any bike fanatic. Keeping the romanticism aside, you need to consider some factors so that the love between you and your bike does not prove to be a costly affair.

    The first and the very obvious yet important factor is that, before even considering buying a new motorcycle, you need to be sure that you have the skills and abilities to ride any bike. If you are a novice, or even its been a while that you rode a motorcycle, you need to take a refresher course. Get a motorcycle license first if you don’t have one, to ride legally. The best way to go about all this is, enroll in a riding school.

    Once you have learned or brushed your skills on changing gears on a motorcycle without stalling it, you need to decide which kind of motorbike you intend to buy. Before considering the mechanical attributes and performance, decide on the need. Do you need to buy it to zip around the city streets and reach swiftly to your workplace or college, join a motorcycle club, or cruise along the road to take it on road trips?

    Once you have decided on the need and plan to go ahead and buy one, consider these points like; your body type. No matter how badly you want the bike, if your feet don’t touch the ground when the bike is upright, then the bike is too tall for you. You might as well should not consider high-performance bikes.

    Look for a bike that you feel comfortable sitting on. Take it for a small spin. How does the saddle feel? Are you able to maneuver the bike on difficult curves? How well does it respond to throttle and braking? Once you have done these with a couple of bikes, you will get a clear picture of which bike suits you best. And once you have decided on what type of bike you wish to buy, consider the technical aspects such as, type of engine, braking aspects, suspension, tires etc.

    After you have put a finger on your choice, it’s time to consider the financial aspects. Get a competitive insurance quote for your bike. There several insurance agencies on the internet that can help you provide the best quotes. Get in touch with a local insurance agency for the same. Decide on the finance. That is, the mode of payment (cash or other financing options).

    Don’t forget to buy the biking gear that best suits you and your bike. Helmet, jacket, gloves, boots and dedicated eyewear.
